A Not So Scary Candy You Can Eat This Halloween
Halloween is a terrifying time. Not just because 13-year-olds are dressed up as "sexy" nurses, but because there is candy everywhere—in the office, at the post office or worst of all, in your house. And while indulging occasionally in chocolaty nougat goodness won't kill you, it seems like there's some new excuse for you to tear open a candy bar or eat a piece of cake on a daily basis.
Well today, when Halloween is upon us and M&Ms are lurking inside every drawer, you can reach for a candy bar that won't make you feel totally guilty. Sure, it's not the same as reaching for an apple, but Unreal Candy actually has about the same amount of sugar and fiber as one.
With five different options (from peanut butter cups to caramel bars), this candy is the latest and greatest way to eat a treat without regret. There is no corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oil, artificial ingredients or preservatives. It's even low on the glycemic index, meaning it won't spike your insulin. Not only is this candy not terrible for you, but most of their varieties have 5 grams of protein and actually taste really, really good. Translation: Your taste buds (and those of your kids) will have no idea that you're not chowing down on a Snickers bar. Yum.
