Candy tricks or treats Trying to eat Healthy? Which Halloween candy is a trick? Which one is a treat?

Vital Juice sends out a daily healthy living tip {which I love} via email. With Halloween candy flying everywhere in my house, this daily tip caught my eye!

That’s Fit recently took a walk down the candy aisle to investigate. While they don’t say any particular candy is healthy, there are definitely some choices that are better than others.
