Candy is definitely not healthy, but some of the better ones are low in fat and calories.
The Best And Worst Halloween Candies For Your Health
York Peppermint Patty
A snack sized York Peppermint Patty contains a reasonable 60 calories and 1 gram of fat. Hint: they’re great frozen treats too. If you stick to peppermints during Halloween you'll be in good shape, and have the best breath!
Enjoying an entire roll of Smarties will only set you back 25 calories. Even if the candy is entirely comprised of sugar, hopefully popping them into your mouth one at a time will slow down your craving. If you enjoy Smarties, try Pez too for fun, small treat.
Since these treats boast no saturated fat, it’s only the sugar content you should consider. Six Tootsie Rolls have 140 calories and 21 grams of sugar, but be mindful that after six Tootsie Roll Midgees, the trans fat content could begin to add up. Chew slowly and enjoy the sweets moderation!
Since Jolly Ranchers are hard candies they tend to be longer lasting, should keep you satisfied by enjoying the sweet more slowly. Three pieces contain about 70 calories and a modest 11 grams of sugar. Try other hard candies for a long-lasting sweet.
Now And Later
Eating four Now and Laters will only set you back .5 grams of fat and 53 calories. Hopefully all the chewing will tire out your jaw to keep your from eating more. A few Starbursts GummiBursts could help to quench your fruity craving too. They also happen to be a nonfat candy.
Fun Size Peanut M&Ms
Since peanuts can actually fall into the category of “healthy nuts,” Peanut M&Ms will be more filling than ordinary ones. One Fun Size pack of Peanut M&Ms contains only 90 calories and nine grams of sugar. Try dark chocolate covered almonds for a candy that could almost pass for a super food!
Fun Size 3 Musketeers
3 Musketeers Bars are reasonable fun size candy bars. With only 63 calories and 10 grams of sugar, 3 Musketeers are one of the few candy bars to enjoy in moderation during Halloween. Try other caramel-free candy bars like the classic Hershey bar or a Krackel.
Even thought they're festive, Halloween-themed goodies can just be bigger versions of the already too sugary candies. In terms of calorie content there is a big difference between, some candies have two-thirds more calories than their original counterparts.

Peanut Butter-Filled Candies
Sure, peanuts can boast some health benefits in moderation, but the peanut filling that goes into a candy bar is far from the kind you'd find in a jar. It's filled with sugar and fat and sometimes even partially hydrogenated vegetable oil.

An added marshmallow center increases the amount of sugar in your candy by a lot. One marshmallow can be relatively reasonable as a sweet snack, but it is difficult to discover how much is a chocolate-covered marshmallow sweet.
