My name is Linda, and I confess: Every Halloween I become a ‘Choco-Holic!” Seriously, when my daughter was little, I would so look forward to her ‘trick-or-treating,’ because of my ‘addiction.’ I would raid my daughter’s Halloween candy bag and eat candy bars until I was literally sick. I would never have guessed that ‘this candy bar’ was the worst of all for the waistline either!
You gotta be kidding me….Twix is the worst? The seemingly harmless little cookie center seems like it would make this candy bar far less fattening, than say, my favorite Snickers bar! But it’s a fact, when it comes to Halloween candy, Twix Miniatures is the worst miniature candy bar of the worst. Three of them come with 150 calories, 8 g fat and 15 g sugar. Twix has the worst saturated fat profile of any candy in your kid’s trick-or-treat bag.
Think about it like this: Each one of these bite-sized candies carries 10 percent of the saturated fat you should consume in an entire day. Switch to Tootsie Rolls and you’ll cut your calories by more than half and trim your total fat intake by a whopping 81 percent.
Do you raid your kid’s Halloween candy bag?
