Ready for some...Halloween candy?! If you're a sucker for your sweet tooth cravings, check out this article :D


While the occasional sweet treat is ok, most of us don’t stop at a single mini candy bar. The next thing you know, you’re six bars deep in front of the TV watching Hocus Pocus, considering pilfering a few extra candy bars away from the trick or treat bowl.


I've made a comparison table for you below so you can see how much that little ‘treat’ is actually going to cost you in minutes of running. You’ll be surprised at just how easy it is to break the calorie bank.


Whether you’re sneaking from your kids candy bucket or hitting a Halloween party this spooky season, keep these stats in mind to keep from going overboard on a few too many ghostly goodies.

Think that the special halloween drinks are better in terms of calories? You’re in for a rude surprise below! Have you ever guiltily wondered just how many Calories are in seasonal lattes, frappucinos, and gourmet coffees?


Or have you banished those thoughts to the back of your mind, bidding them not to return until after fall, when you step on the scale and see (to your horror) an extra 10 lbs?
