Halloween is a holiday that brings out the kid in all of us. We can’t wait to go trick or treating, dress up in crazy costumes, and eat our favorite Halloween candies. However, many are hesitant to indulge in sweets and sugary treats.
But what if you could have your cake (or candy) and eat it too? That’s where MediPlan Diet Services comes in.
Our team of experts has put together a list of the top five Halloween candies to enjoy without feeling like a zombie at the end of the night! (Hint: it doesn’t include Candy Corn).
1. Kit Kat
This iconic British candy makes it to the top of our list of Halloween candies to enjoy because it consists of a delicate stacking of wafers and chocolate. Although it contains sugar, this candy is far healthier (and tastier) than other sweet treats available for Halloween.
2. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
If you’re looking for the perfect Halloween candy, look no further than Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. These delicious peanut butter cups have been around since 1928 and are still going strong!
The creamy and natural peanut butter filling combined with a thick layer of milk chocolate melts in your mouth with every bite. What could be better?
3. Hershey Kisses
Hershey Kisses are the perfect Halloween candy.
They’re not your regular milk chocolate candy bar, but they have much the same ingredients. Plus, you can get them in all different shapes and sizes—and even different flavors! It’s hard to choose just one favorite!
4. York Peppermint Patties (Yum Yum)
The Yum Yum is another iconic treat that has been around since 1913. They were popular as holiday gifts. However, it wasn’t until 1926 that they became available year-round, but they have sold well ever since.
The original recipe included peppermint oil and corn syrup, with chocolate added later on. The company has since changed its recipe to include vegetable oils instead of animal fat, making the candy vegan-friendly!
M&Ms are a classic Halloween candy, and for a good reason. They’re delicious chocolate peanuts that come in various colors and flavors (including some truly wacky ones), and they’re just plain fun.
However, trick-or-treaters love them so much because they’re relatively healthy and contain mostly chocolate. You can’t have just one of them; they’re so tasty that you’ll keep reaching back into the bag even after it’s mostly empty.
