    In the midst of the Halloween season, confectionery delights take center stage, although their nutritional merits, or lack thereof, vary considerably.

    According to insights from registered dietitian Rose Britt, when it comes to categorizing Halloween candy based on relative healthiness, Peanut M&Ms earn the distinction of being the top pick. This distinction hinges on the presence of peanuts, which provide a modicum of substance to complement the sugar content.

    Similarly considered as healthier options are Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers bars, and any confectionery creations characterized by a composite composition. These selections typically incorporate multiple elements such as peanuts, endowing them with a greater degree of substance compared to candies primarily composed of corn syrup.
