Most of you know that I eat a fairly healthy diet, at least most of the time. I do have a few weaknesses, like pizza and ice cream. I would like to say that Halloween is another one of my weaknesses, but actually I am not that big on candy. I do love chocolate, but I only eat it every once in a while. My favorite candy, ok, my top three favorite candy bars would have to be Kit Kat, Almond Joy, and Twix.
I was listening to the radio the other day and the morning emcee was talking about America’s favorite Halloween candy by state. It turns out that North Carolina’s favorite candy bar around Halloween was the Butterfinger candy bar. I know that candy is a dental nightmare, but it is quite delicious.

Whether you like Candy Corns or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, make sure to eat candy in moderation. The extra sugars and high fructose corn syrup and not very healthy for you. Be safe, have fun, and Happy Halloween.
