COLUMBIA - It seems like the end of October tends to signal that the sugar consumption season is going to begin its gradual incline. First, it’s Halloween. Then pies on Thanksgiving. That leads us into holiday cookies. It’s frightening, right?

If you’re someone who is struggling to lose weight and/or if sugary treats are your weakness, having cute candy baskets sitting on your coworker’s desk or, having the large bag of candy “hidden” in the pantry waiting for Halloween can be downright torturous.

So maybe it will help you to keep yourself in check if you have an idea of how much work it takes to burn some of those little tasty treats. This chart pertains to SNACK SIZE treats (not the full-size):

Charleston Chew (30 calories)

10 minutes of leisurely walking (2.5 mph)
