Refined sugar, a ton of full-fat dairy, preservatives and food-dyes are the leading ingredients of most of the popular Halloween candy on the market.
- 21 grams of sugar sneak into Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil is in Snickers (TRANS FAT that is so bad for us, it’s actually banned in New York City restaurants)
- Artificial Flavor in KitKat Bars
- Hydrogenated Palm Oil and corn syrup in Skittles
So, instead of eating these artery-clogging and teeth-rotting candy bars, try my favorites this Halloween!
