How much sugar is in that fun-sized Snickers bar? How many calories in that tiny pack of M&M's? Whereas full-sized packages of candy have the nutritional information on the package, the deluge that comes home from trick or treating usually does not. Here are the calorie and carbohydrate information for many common Halloween candy treats.

Serving sizes can be tricky, especially with "off-brands." For example, a Palmer Halloween pack of peanut butter cups lists a serving size as 1.5 ounces.

How many peanut butter cups are in a serving? It doesn't say. There are 63 pieces of candy in the 26-ounce bag, and we are left to figure it out from there. A serving turns out to be an unrealistic 3.64 pieces of candy.

Also, "fun size" and "snack size" are often on the packaging, but these sizes are not standard. A snack size of one type of candy can be the same as a fun size of another. Even worse, there are instances where "snack size" of the same type of candy differed from one bag to another, and it certainly changes over time, usually getting smaller. Check the current weight of the candy compared to this list.

One gram of carbohydrate provides 4 calories. Some candies have nutrients in addition to carbs, such as fat or protein, that provide additional calories per serving.
