The Great Candy Crush of 2016

It’s coming up to that time of year when food and sweets fall like rain and the mounting pressure and temptation are too much to bear.

If you don’t have kids or nephews to steal candy from than you probably have seen the buy one get one free offers at your local supermarket. While most of America is showing no remorse as they dig through each bag of candy to claim their favorites, you have the self control and discipline to show those sweet morsels they have no control over you! For those of you that do not have the iron will to resist a piece of your long-missed sugar infused taste of heaven then we want to illuminate the post candy sugar slump that you will be fighting.

Below you will find a list of the most popular Halloween candies, the basic nutritional information and what it will take to burn the calories from consuming each. While our metabolisms weren’t what they were when we were young, we can prepare and limit our exposure to over-indulging on this candy-filled day.
