Before you riffle through your kid's Halloween candy, here's something to think about: If you have just one fun sized pack of Skittles, you'd have to run for about five minutes to burn off the calories. And you KNOW you'll eat more than that.
--Here are some other popular Halloween candies, and how much you'll have to exercise if you just have a FEW of them.
#1.) Peanut M&Ms. One fun size package of them has about 90 calories, which equals about 8 minutes of running, 6 minutes of swimming, 16 minutes on a bike, or 11 minutes lifting weights.
#2.) Tootsie Rolls. Five of them equal about 9 minutes of running, 8 minutes of swimming, or 20 minutes on a bike.
#3.) Three Musketeers. If you have two fun sized bars, that's 10 minutes of running, or about 22 minutes on a bike.
--It's about the same if you have about 20 pieces of Candy Corn . . . which would be A LOT of them considering how AWFUL they are.
#4.) Starburst. Eight of them have 160 calories, or around 12 minutes of running, or 28 minutes on a bike.
--Or if you have just TWO fun sized Snickers, Twix, Almond Joys, or Mounds bars, it's about the same.
#5.) Butterfingers. Two of the small ones pack about 170 calories, which would equal a 13-minute jog, a 12-minute swim, 30 minutes on a bike, or 20 minutes lifting weights.
#6.) Hershey's Kisses. If you have 10, that's over 200 calories and 12 grams of fat . . . or 16 minutes of running, 14 minutes of swimming, or 35 minutes on a bike.
#7.) Kit Kats. Two fun sized bars have 210 calories and 11 grams of fat, which equals about 16 minutes on a treadmill, or 37 minutes on bike.
--A Halloween-sized bag of Sour Patch Kids also has about 210 calories.
#8.) Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. If you have five of the MINI ones, that's about 220 calories, which means a 17-minute jog, a 15-minute swim, 39 minutes on a bike, or 26 minutes lifting weights.
