Counting the Calories of Halloween Candy Could Add Up to a Big Mac

Now that the trick-or-treating is over, there is a lot of candy in most of our homes. I was reading some information on counting the calories in Halloween candy and it made me think twice before eating another candy bar.

Dr. John Torres from 9NEWS did some counting and shared this information on 9NEWS.com

Candy Corn: 50 calories; 0 grams of fat; 12 carbs
MiniBars (Milky Way, Snickers 3Musketeers): 45 calories; 2 grams of fat; 30 carbs
Jr Mints: 80 calories; 1.5 grams of fat; 16 carbs
Skittles: 60 calories; 0.5 grams of fat; 42 carbs
Starbust: 40 calories; 1 grams of fat; 34 carbs
Swedish: 55 calories; 0 grams of fat; 14 carbs
Sour Patch: 55 calories; 0 grams of fat; 14 carbs
York Peppermint Patty: 50 calories; 1 grams of fat; 11 carbs

So if you end up eating just 9 to10 little bags or bars of candy, you've just eaten the calorie equivalent of a Big Mac!

Dr. John has some tips on getting rid of all that extra candy, besides eating it all.
