Cheap Trick Or Treat Alternatives

1. Organic Jelly Gummi Bears

These fat-free organic bears come in 80-calorie packages, so

no one overdoes it. A little less gummy than regular ones, the natural fruit

flavors like elderberry and apricot are yummy.

2. Tiny Trapeze Caramels

Like Rolo's but made with organic cocoa powder and cane

juice.


3. Figamajigs

Figs wrapped in delicious dark chocolate. And guess what?

They're low-fat (only 1.5 g saturated fat), high fiber (5g) and covered with

almonds.

4. Reed's Ginger Candy Chews


Bite-size candies at just 25 calories a pop.

5. Florida's Natural Pocket Fruit-to-Go Stiks

Like fruit roll-ups but healthier, these organic, no-gluten,

fat-free chew sticks with 8 grams of sugar and 40 calories in the smaller

version.

6. Angel Mints

Similar to Lifesaver mints with fewer calories.


7. Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Edamame

Think chocolate-covered peanuts. Same calories but with fiber

(5g), protein (7g) and only half the sugar of M&M's.

8. CoCoaVia Blueberry and Almond Chocolate Bars

Flavanoid-rich dark chocolate, almonds high in healthy fat,

blueberries bursting with protective antioxidants and some B vitamins. 100

calories, 3g of saturated fat and 9g of sugar.

And remember:

Keep Guilt-Free Sweets on Hand

Give Out Treats that Don't Tempt You

Don't Be Fooled By FUN-SIZE Snacks

Even those "Fun Size" snacks add up. A Fun

Size Butterfinger bar has 100 calories and 4 fat grams, 1 Fun Size Baby Ruth

has 85 calories and 4g fat, and every Fun Size pack of Peanut M&M's

contains 110 calories and 5 fat grams (and not nearly enough M&M's). But not

all those bite-sized bits are bad. Tootsie Roll Midgees have only 23 calories and a half-gram of

fat each, a 3 Musketeers Mini has just 24 calories and less than 1 gram of fat,

and an entire roll of Smarties has just 25 calories and is fat-free.
