Halloween candy shocker!

Okay, it’s Halloween and of course, I had to indulge in some candy. Was it worth it? Yes, I have to say it was…kind of. If nothing else, I had one heck of a sugar high for a couple of hours!

I had one of each of the following: a fun size Snickers bar (2 WW pts.), a Reese’s snack size peanut butter cup – that’s one cup (3 WW pts.), a fun size bag of peanut M&M’s, which had about 10 M&M’s in it (2 WW pts.) and a snack size Kit Kat bar, which was basically two pieces (2 WW pts.).

So really, was it worth it? Okay, not really. That was nine Weight Watchers point I wasted on four lousy pieces of candy. I can eat an entire dinner (or supper as I typically call it) for less than that. But, it was Halloween and I just to indulge.

Today, I received an e-mail from Hungry Girl (www.hungry-girl.com) that had calories, fat and WW points for some of the Halloween candy. Here are just a few of them (some are quite shocking!):

One thought on “Halloween candy shocker!

  1. Holey Smoley: My nieces and nephews had full pillowcases of candy tonight–that’s a lot of calories/WW points! I probably shouldn’t crack open that bag of snickers miniatures my nephew passed on to me—one lady passed out full bags of miniatures to each child. Perhaps I should forward your blog to my sisters so they can see just how many calories their children are toting about the house!
