What’s your favorite Halloween treat? When a Monmouth University poll asked 1,161 American adults to choose from a list of eight top-selling candies, 36 percent said Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Snickers came in a distant second at 18 percent, followed by M&M’s at 11 percent, and plain Hershey bars and candy corn were each rated tops by 6 percent. 

Whatever you prefer, the key to indulging healthfully is portion control. Those “fun size” packages can help, but reach into the candy bowl too many times and calories can add up.  

To help you keep your consumption in check, we calculated the exact amount of 10 trick-or-treat favorites you can eat for 100 calories.

So whether you’re dipping into your kids’ Halloween candy stash or the office treat bowl, use this visual guide to keep tabs on how much you’re eating.
