Trick Or Treat? Halloween Tips For Candy Freaks

by ARI COHEN · October 30, 2008

Have  to squeeze into your costume but still want to splurge on Halloween treats? It looks like you'll be okay as long as you stick to a few snack sized packages. Tracie Johanson,founder of Pick Up The Pace,  provides this great list of  nutritional content for some of our favorite holiday treats:

Twizzlers 1 treat size pkg.= 45 calories Almond Joy 1 snack size bar = 90 calories Milk Duds 1 treat size box = 40 calories Butterfinger 1 snack size bar = 100 calories Milky Way 1 snack size bar = 90 calories SweetTarts 1 treat size pkg. = 50 calories 1Tootsie Pop = 60 calories

The Non Society girls are dressing up as 3 Musketeers this year and Julia confessed to have eaten 2 1/2 bars while making her costume. We wanted to let Julia know that if she would've stuck to the fun size 3 Musketeers at 190 calories versus the king size bar at 260 she could have saved a few calories for some pumpkin pie. If you are running  around from party to party you fit into your costume  just fine, but Johanson warns that, "It only takes nine small fun-size candy bars to put on a quarter-pound of fat".
