“Snack Size” Treats. The real Truth behind them.

I decided to look this up and what I found was amazing.  This time each year , there are snacked sized temptations all around the office. You know what I’m talking about. “Snack Sized Snickers” “Snaked Sized M&M’s” “Snack Sized Twix” and the list goes on. Are these any better than the full sized? Well according to research you might as well take those SS’s and tape them right on your butt! Even if it’s not this time of year when the “Candy Devil” comes out the stores also promote snacked sized snacks in big bags and some colleagues have them in a jar all year round.

I was working out with my coworkers and my body is so sore! The constant tightness and aching has made me do a 360 when I caught myself walking towards that “Jar of Sins” . SO! With that said take a look below just in case you ever thought the SS’s were innocent! J You’ll be amazed.

Snickers (one fun size candy bar) – 72 calories.

Running for 8 minutes is your fastest approach. Don’t like running? A 19-minute walk will burn the same number of calories.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Skittles or Twix bar (one fun size) – 80 calories.

Riding a bike for 10 minutes will do the trick to get rid of this treat. You’ll need to work equally hard if you eat a fun size Twix bar or a fun size package of Skittles.

Nestles Crunch – (one fun size bar) – 70 calories.

Dance for 12 minutes

Plain Hershey’s Milk Chocolate (one fun size bar) – 70 calories.

Swim for 9 minutes to burn off those calories. 18 minutes if you eat two.

Candy corn (11 pieces) – 70 calories.(My biggest guilty pleasure!!!)

10 minutes of step aerobics will get rid of those candy corn calories.

Twizzlers or Sweet Tarts (treat size pack) or 1 Hershey’s Nugget- 50 calories.

A 15 minute game of Frisbee or a 5 ½ minute of tennis with a friend will get rid of them.

Tootsie Pop – 60 calories. A harmless lollipop? Not so fast.

you’ll need to skip rope for 6 minutes to burn it off for good.

Payday, Almond Joy or Mt. Goodbar (fun size) – 90 calories

Dancing for 20 minutes to your favorite music

Butterfinger or Kit Kat (snack size) – 100 calories

Jump on the treadmill for a brisk 15 minute walk

M&M’s (fun size) – 100 calories(I ate two in 1 min!SMH)

Do 100 pushups to undo the damage from a fun size pack of plain M&M’s. Double that if you eat a pack of fun size Peanut M&M’s (180 calories).
