Comedian Lewis Black has an entire sketch dedicated to hating on candy corn. It’s even been rumored that candy corn has been used by the CIA for years as an “enhanced interrogation technique”, but for millions it wouldn’t be Halloween without it.

This bite size treat might seem harmless enough, the problem is that most grab it by the handful…over and over and over again.  Of course most candy contains alot of sugar and inherently is not great for you.  And while there may  be no real “healthy” answer to Halloween, there are certainly better choices than candy corn to satisfy your sweet tooth.
