It's a big part of what makes the holiday fun, and completely abstaining from Halloween treats sounds like torture.

However, some candies are worse than others.

Much of what makes certain candies so unhealthy is their high amount of added sugar.

Added sugar is the worst type of sugar you can eat, and the American Heart Association recommends a limit of 36 grams per day for men and 25 grams per day for women.

In their full-sized forms, many of these candies exceed or approach that limit in a single serving.

While "fun size" varieties are more common on Halloween, those little treats can still back a shocking amount of sugar.
