Trick or Treat? - Part 2


Just like the Great Pumpkin disappoints Charlie Brown and the Peanuts Gang, this Reese pumpkin is disappointing too!  I am fully aware they are delicious (they are my favorite), but check out the nutritional information:

Calories = 180 (100 calories from fat)
Total Fat = 11 g
Saturated Fat = 3.5 g
Carbohydrates = 18
Sugars = 16 g
Fiber = 1 g
Protein = 4 g

The sugar content in this little pumpkin is the equivalent of eating 4 sugar cubes.  That's a lot of sugar so if you choose to eat this one, you better hide the rest of the 6-pack!!
Basically anything else is going to be better!  They offer miniature versions of the pumpkin or they have seasonal mini reese's peanut butter cups.  I know the chocolate and peanut butter combination is heavenly, but eat these the entire Halloween season and you will be as plump as the thanksgiving turkey!

Miniature Peanut Butter Cups
1 piece (eating 5 of these is like eating a regular reeses--be aware!)
42 calories
2.5 g fat
1 g of sugar
1 g of protein

Miniature Reese's Pumpkin (make sure it says snack size!!)
Calories = 90
Fat = 5 g
Saturated = 2 g
Carbs = 9 g
Protein = 2g
