In the Halloween spirit, we’ll do a candy swap this week. If you want to minimize the damage done by all the Halloween candy, swap lollipops for chocolate. While they are both sugar bombs, the lollipop takes longer to eat and has fewer calories.
Yes, I know, dark chocolate is full of antioxidants. And that is true. It is good in moderation.
Since when is Halloween about good-quality chocolate in moderation?
So, since Halloween is all about quantity over quality, stick with the lollipops. One can last for a good 15 minutes and satisfy your sweet tooth. Neither of those can be said about a fun-size Snickers bar.
And kids actually like lollipops, so you aren’t the bad house on the block for handing them out – the kids don’t know they are better for them than M&Ms. If you need some chocolate, get the ones with the Tootsie Roll in the middle. Still less dangerous that a bag of fun-size Hershey bars.
