snickers, candy corn, twizzlers...oh my!


heeeeyyyyy all you candy lovers...

yeah, i'm talking to you!


guess what i read this morning...

according to eat this, not that article from the womens health magazine...

Three miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups fill your belly with more sugar than a glazed doughnut; half a pack of Skittles has more sugar than a scoop of Haagen-Dazs Cookies and Cream Ice Cream; nine Twizzlers carry as many calories as a Wendy’s Double Stack Burger.


These that's scary! So unless you follow the Michael Phelps workout regimen, you’re going to suffer for your sweet tooth. Make every swap outlined here just once and you’ll save nearly 400 calories. Do them multiple times and keep yourself out of the fat-man suit this Halloween.


Or, you could dress up as ya girl above - Rihanna would never get caught dead eating a snickers in public ;)


whats your favorite treat?

i personally lovvvve...

twizzlers
milk duds
tootsie rolls
milky ways

yeah, clearly i'm the one with the sweet tooth problem :)

My favorite candy is a local one called Mallo Cups. They look like Reese's Cups but have marshmallow cream in the center instead of peanut butter. They are so good!

Worst post ever!!! Haha! I guess that's one reason I should be glad we don't have Halloween in Australia. Sweet things are pretty much my most favourite thing ever.

This post made me cry a little... haha! Too bad I'm not going to stop eating these treats. My stomach would probably thank me if I did, but my taste buds would hate me :)
