Before hitting up your local Grocery store or Target to stock up on last-minute Halloween candy, think again.

Popular candy brands including Snickers and Reeses are full of genetically modified hydrogenated oils and corn syrup, not to mention they pack a crazy high sugar content. According to an article written on buzzfeed.com, “A regular-sized Snickers bar has 27 grams of sugar (the equivalent of 7 teaspoons).” In case you forgot, sugar is highly addictive.
