“Today” Show on NBC asked two nutrition experts Mia Syn, and Brigid Titgemeier to pick the three best and worst candies for Halloween!

Healthy Choices: 

  • PayDay – With the highest amount of protein and even some fiber it may keep you more satisfied, keeping you from going back for more.
  • Twizzlers – Although it has a lot of sugar, it has zero grams of saturated fat.
  • York Peppermint Patties – They have the lowest amount of saturated fat of all the candies.
  • Honorable Mention: 100 Grand – Because “they do not have questionable artificial ingredients.”

Least Healthy Choices: 

  • 3 Musketeers – It’s the highest in saturated fat and sugar.
  • Mounds – It’s also high in saturated fat.
  • Skittles – Among the highest in sugar with no nutritional value.
  • M&Ms – They are loaded with artificial coloring
  • Starburst – They are loaded with sugar, plus they have a ton of artificial colors and flavors.

So for this Halloween, you may want to monitor your kids’ consumption of those candies.
