I'm not a huge candy eater, but around Halloween, I can't help but crave a couple of my childhood favorites: Reese's Pieces and 100 Grand Bars. If the holiday makes you nostalgically reach for a bag of your preferred sweets but you're on a diet, trying to eat healthy, or simply cutting back on your sugar intake, you might want to think twice before you stock up on Butterfingers. In fact, to determine the healthiest candy to reach for this Halloween, I performed a slightly unscientific study of the nutrition labels on every bag of treats in my local Target's Halloween aisle, assessing each candy on its calorie, sugar, fat, and sodium intake to determine which are the least-guilty guilty pleasures.

Without further adieu, here are the 10 healthiest Halloween candies to snack on.

What's your favorite Halloween candy?
