This Is How Many Calories Are in Philly’s Top-Selling Halloween Candies

You know, so you can make an educated decision when buying your discounted Halloween candy.

Its official: Halloween is less than 24 hours away and Philly’s got a sweet tooth, with a preference for chocolate. Recent research by Peapod proves it: They found the top-selling Halloween candies in Philly are Hershey’s Kit Kat bars followed by Milky Way bars, Brach’s Candy Corn, plain ol’ Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars and Snickers.

But before you get all candy-crazy we have to remind you (we are a health blog after all) to take note of the nutrition facts of any sweets you eat this Halloween season, especially snack-size candy. Just because they’re a bit smaller doesn’t mean you can get away with eating way more of them. (We’ve all learned that the hard way at some point, right?) In fact, two of the options on the list will run you up a whopping 80 calories per tiny bar. So below, the calorie counts and nutrition info for Philly’s most popular Halloween candies. Take note, then, come Sunday, buy your discounted Halloween candy accordingly.
