Halloween Candy

Eat All the Candy You Want

butterfinger-wrapperIf I’ve heard it once at school drop off or pickup, I’ve heard it a dozen times: a mother saying, “OMG, I’ve totally gained five pounds since Halloween thanks to all of the kids’ candy.”

Let’s do a little fact recap, shall we?

  • Number of extra calories needed to gain a pound of fat: 3,500
  • Number of calories in a Fun Size Snickers: 80
  • Number of Fun Size Snickers required to gain one pound: 43.75
  • Number of Fun Size Snickers required to gain five pounds: 218.75

Now, I don’t know about you, but I would be sick long before I hit the one-pound mark, and would be incapacitated by the time I hit the five-pound mark. So if you ask me (which you didn’t), I’m in favor of enjoying the candy while you can.

However, if you want to find a greater purpose for that candy, try this: find your favorite chocolate varieties, stash them in a locked cabinet, and save them for a month. The Assistant has a plan for it.
