Burn Off Your Favorite Halloween Candies [CC’s ShapeU]


Does trying to resist the temptation of binging on fun-sized Halloween candy seem more difficult than finishing a 20 minute workout right about now? Probably because it’s really, really hard when that Butterfinger Mini is calling your name! And why shouldn’t we enjoy a little reward for working so hard every other day of the year? We’ve earned it, after all.

Luckily, we can have your candy and eat it, too, with this week’s installment of ShapeU: the Halloween Candy Edition. It comes complete with an interval workout that will keep your Halloween guilt free!

We may not go the traditional route of trick-or-treating anymore, but that certainly hasn’t stopped us from satisfying our Halloween sweet tooth. Whether you’ve been keeping up with CC’s What’s The Best Halloween Candy of All Time?, or you just happen to have your favorites already stockpiled in your pantry, it’s easy to be enticed by candy’s sweet call. But before you indulge, check out this breakdown of halloween candies and what you need to do to burn them off from Men’s Fitness.

The list is complete from Almond Joy to York Peppermint Patty, so no matter what your favorite candy, read through the list and see for yourself how much a few of those innocent-looking candies can set you back!

Yes, it’s all well and good throwing back M&M’s until the calories and their respective workout requirements are smacking you right in the face; then it becomes more like ‘well-dear God, I just ate seven of those’ and ‘good-thing I realized before I polished off the bag.’ But never fear, here’s an interval routine that can put a dent in the calorie count you might rack up, and ease your worries so you can enjoy some much deserved TLC – that’s tender loving candy.

And now that you can taste-test your candy guilt free, vote for the best candy of all time here! Happy Halloween!
