Just In Time for Halloween, Candy Calories [Buzzkill]

I don’t want to be a buzzkill right before Halloween, but I couldn’t believe the amount of calories in just one candy bar.  One Baby Ruth ® has around the same amount of calories as a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder ® with Cheese!

According to this [Infographic] looks like the Fun and Mini Sizes are your best choices. Although you will still have to watch the quantity you consume of course.

This is one benefit of being an Empty Nester, there will not be any candy in our house!

With all the commercials for candy during this time of year I do admit that it is hard not to crave it. This year I am hoping to stay on my diet and ignore all the cravings! How do you avoid eating too many sweets around Halloween?

    I think I’ll buy candy that I don’t like (gummys for one) so that I’m not tempted to eat any!

      I have done that too Gerry! I hope you survived the temptations!

    Thanks for sharing this great post! It’s so important – visually – to have a representation of what we’re putting in our bodies. Great time to share, too ;-)

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
    add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
    was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
    something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

      Linda, Do you mean to automatically tweet your blog posts? Or to show your tweets as they appear on a feed? There are a few plugins available at least on the WP self hosted blogs. You can search on wordpress.com and see what they offer for your blog. Thank you so much for your comment too!
