Numbers Game: Answer

Just in time for Halloween: which of the following fun-size treats provides the least calories?

a) Three Musketeers
b) Skittles

c) Snickers

d) Milky Way

The answer? Three Musketeers.

One fun-size piece of this candy bar provides 63 calories.

The rest? Milky Way’s fun-size delivers 75 calories, a fun-size bag of Skittles clocks in at 80, and the smallest of all Snickers bars adds 99 calories to your day.

Missing a chocolatey coating, Skittles are by far the lowest in fat (.75 grams and 0 grams of saturated fat), but make up those calories by containing more sugar than the three sweet competitors.

Even among its chocolate friends, the Three Musketeers prevail. A fun-size Milky Way packs 2 grams of saturated fat, Snickers is a close second with 1.8 grams, while the three amigos manage a not-so-bad 1.3 grams.

This might surprise you, but, in my opinion, the worst treat to overindulge in on Halloween night is a virtually fat-free one like Skittles.

The absence of fat (and, obviously, protein and fiber) don’t help us feel full, thereby make it easier to overeat and consume a large number of calories.

Candies with slightly higher fat contents can help you feel full in lower quantities.

    This has nothing to do with the post, but I was eating Corn Flakes and saw that HFCS is one of the main ingredients but per serving it only has 2g of sugar. Is this still an unhealthier choice for breakfast?
