Thursday Thirteen - 17th Edition

My 13 Favorite Halloween Candies and their Points!

M&Ms Snack Size Bag Peanut - 2 points
M&Ms Snack Size Regular - 2 points
Butterfinger Bar, Fun Size - 2 points
Snickers Bar, Fun Size - 2 points
Candy Corn, 1 oz - 2 points
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Snack Size - 2 points
3 Musketeers, Fun Size - 2 points
Charm's Blow Pop - 1 point
Caramello, Snack Size Bar - 2 points
Hershey's Miniatures, 5 pieces - 4 points
Sweet Tarts, 2 mini packs - 1 point

Notice the theme --> I love chocolate! I don't like sticky candy like Skittles and Starburst. I love candy that contains nuts, especially almonds, but the ones with almonds usually don't come in the snack size version for trick or treaters.
I do not plan to pass out candy. I just want to be prepared for what my kids might bring back into my house. Knowing the points values will slow me down!
Speaking of candy, we took the kids to Fright Fest at Six Flags this weekend where they had a blast trick or treating from the characters!

YIKES! No wonder I always gain weight at Halloween...10 of those little fun size bars per day really adds up fast. Thanks for posting this, it's really handy to know how many points are in each.


And curse you and your Six Flags...you are really mean showing that place off all the time :-)
