This weekend is Halloween, definitely one of my favorite holidays! One of the best things about this spooky holiday is the candy, all the delicious chocolate and fruit flavored pieces that taste so great after a day of work! But the only down fall to eating some of my favorite treats are the calories and grams of fat that in a full size candy bar. So I found a bunch of fun sized treats that are not as many calories but will still satisfy your sweet tooth!
Dum Dums 25 Calories, 0g fat (per pop) These tiny lollipops have been around since 1924 and their size keeps the calorie count low, with just 26 per pop. Keep in mind that these little treats are basically just sugar, corn syrup and artificial flavoring, so there’s no nutritional value. But they are a virtually guilt-free way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Smarties 25 Calories 0g fat (per roll) If one piece is never enough for you, a roll of Smarties is a great option. And at just 25 calories per roll, they also won’t blow your weight loss efforts. Another plus, they are gluten-free and vegan — so they’re a great choice if you have dietary restrictions.
Hershey Kisses 21-23 Calories 1.3g fat (per kiss) Get your chocolate fix with this classic candy. There are 25 calories in each kiss, so as long as you keep the portions under control these are a sensible, chocolate-y option.
Tootsie Roll 60 Calories 0g fat (per roll) Bite-sized, chewy and not-to-sweet, Tootsie Rolls are just 23 calories per piece. Bonus: They last a long time, so you won’t be reaching for seconds right away.
3 Musketeers Mini 24 Calories 0.7g fat (per piece) If you’re a fan of this light and fluffy candy bar, the mini size is the perfect treat. At just 24 calories per piece, you can even afford to go for a few pieces.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures 44 Calories 2.6g fat (per cup) Love the combo of peanut butter and chocolate? This is the guilt-free treat for you. With just 36 calories in each little cup you can get your PB & C fix, without all the damage of a full-sized version, which packs a whopping 210 calories per serving.
Snickers Miniatures 42-45 Calories 2g fat (per piece) Another candy bar favorite gets diet-friendly after a mini makeover. These little guys have just 42 calories per piece, but all the flavor of the original.
Mounds Miniatures 63 Calories 3.7g fat (per piece) Dark chocolate lovers rejoice! Mounds smallest version has 63 calories per piece and gets a fun twist with its coconut filling
Skittles Fun Fun-Sized Pack 80 Calories (per pack) Get a low-calorie taste of the rainbow with the Skittles fun-sized packs. There are about 80 calories per serving and lots of fruity little bites to enjoy.
