Treats for kids, tricks for your waistline

Halloween candies now have been ranked in the best and worst for your waistline.

The worst offenders were found to be: Reeses, Reeses Pieces and Butterfinger.

“If you were to eat those types of candies consistently throughout the year, they would in fact be the worst. But, I think we make an exception for Halloween,” said one man.

“Halloween’s not supposed to be good for you. All the horror is when you step on the scale the next day,” said another man.

The least bad for us were: Jelly Belly Jelly Beans, Pixy Stix and it looks like no chocolate.

“You could work out every day, and eat right and don’t drink and don’t smoke and you’re still going to die. So, enjoy your Snickers,” said another man. “Since we were little we couldn’t wait to be adults to buy candy whenever we wanted, and that’s the beauty of being an adult.”
