It's Halloween!! The Big Scare Revealed!
Oh, I know...it looks innocent enough. Then you start counting the calories - the one thing you should never do on Halloween! Either avoid all candy confrontations entirely or go on a diet break for one spooky day.
Still not convinced? It's not too late to turn your back and run.
Nestle's Crunch 51.3 cal (x 6 fun sized bars pictured) 307.8
Snickers 72 cal. (I see 3) 216
Nerds 50 cal. (I see at least four) 200
Hot Tamales 150 cal. 150
Reeses Cups Fun Sized 80 cal. (I think I see 7) 560
Total Calories in picture above: 1433.8

Have a happy, safe Halloween! All treats, no tricks.
