This Not That...Halloween Candy

Its that time of year again...candy candy everywhere! Its so much fun taking my son trick-or-treating but when we get home and he dumps that huge bag of candy on the counter my mouth starts to water, my tummy starts to growl but my brain starts to yell at me "No No and NO!" Of course my mouth and tummy always over power what my brain is telling me and I end up eating some (a lot) of the candy. To prepare myself this year I decided to do some research, I ventured out to our local grocery store and checked out a bit of their Halloween candy! So for this Weight Loss Wednesday I wanted to share what I found is my This not That list!

I'm sure my son wont get any Skinny Cow pouches in his trick-or-treat bag but Snickers is my all time favorite candy bar and it just so happens that it is the worst candy bar for you so to keep myself from eating all the Snicker Fun Size bars my son gets I bought myself some Skinny Cow Creamy I said prepared!

Always keep in mind that...
3 Musketeers is the best candy bar and Snickers is the worst!
