Fun-Size Candy and Jumping Jacks Remind Us of Being a Kid, So We Put Them Together

We are almost in full-on Halloween mode — discussing costume ideas you can wear to the gym and searching for the appropriate decorations. And the candy — it’s starting to appear everywhere in bowls and jars, so don’t feel bad about going back to your coworker’s desk for another fun-size Snickers, or stealing Peppermint Patties from your kiddo’s trick-or-treating stash. Those little candies bring us joy and let us feel like a kid again, so enjoy them!

But, even though they’re small, bite-sized pieces of candy, the calories can add up quickly. We’re sorry, but we created this (possibly depressing) chart to show how many minutes of jumping jacks you need to do in order to work off Halloween candy — it’ll help put all those empty wrappers in perspective. We’re not saying not to eat them! But keeping this chart in mind might make you think twice about reaching for that 13th Mounds.

Did you know that one minute of vigorous jumping jacks (about 60) burns nine calories? It may seem like a lot of work, but if you have an uncontrollable Reese’s obsession, what’s a few (hundred) jumping jacks?!
