I don't know whether you looked that up or you subscribe to that...But what gives you the impression that we are in need of some Rachael Ray/Daytime Talk Show helpful hints on here?

You think we don't know candy is bad for us?

A salad with no dressing is better for you than a Big Mac.

I hear you should drink water instead of beer and its healthier to excercise instead of laying on the couch eating chips and watching TV.

I think you're missing the point.  This article is saying that some candies are worse for you than others.  With that in mind...

...fucking Zinczenko and his whole, "Eat this, not that" gimmick makes me laugh.  "Hey, instead of a Twix mini, eat 3 Tootsie Rolls instead!"  Well, I hate Tootsie Rolls...everybody I know hates Tootsie Rolls.  There's a reason why they're always the last thing left in my kids Halloween basket.   On the other hand, everybody I know loves Twix bars.  Same sentiment goes for his "Substitute Now & Laters for Milk Maid Caramels" (two completely different candies, if I want one, I'm probably not thinking about the other). 

I also laugh at the number of contradictions in that one article:  for instance, in the first paragraph, he states "Three miniature Reeseā€™s Peanut Butter Cups...fill your belly with more sugar than a glazed doughnut", yet, he's advocating substituting 2 of them for a Reeses Pumpkin a few paragraphs down.  Later, he warns that "noshing 300 extra candy calories a day will add a pound of flab to your frame in less than two weeks"--after he advocates keeping a daily candy caloric limit to 400.  400?!  Really?  Holy shit!!  How long is the editor of Men's Health allowing me to eat 400 calories of candy per day?  On Halloween Night only?  Through Thanksgiving?  Through Christmas?  For the entire year?  For the rest of my life?  I don't know, because Zinczenko doesn't say!  Jackpot!!  I slowly developed diabetes because the editor of Men's Health said I could!

Full disclosure, I occasionally read Men's Health, but I definitely recognize that about 60% of the stuff within its pages is pure shit.  Leading the list of shit is the "Eat This, Not That..." series.  It was designed for the fast food set who are either too lazy or too stupid to understand what they should and shouldn't be eating when they set their ass down at the local Arby's for the fifth time that week.

I agree in principle,but that's just the regular ones,the vanilla ones are great!

Be sure and wash the eggs off of your house before the enzymes start to eat into the paint.

a few years back we had a neighbor who handed out mini bibles for hallaween, they were all over the street and our yard when the kids saw what they were (don't know why they didn't throw them at the house that handed them out when we had good candy)

Last few years we have switched to 3 Musketeers and Twix because we don't really like those. 
Not a fan of the orginal Tootsie roll but like the flavored ones.  (Cherry anything is good)

The numbers they are giving are a bit skewed because they are comparing the candies to small portions.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups has much sugar as a glazed donut. It's just that. A single glazed donut. Three or four glazed donuts on three or four packs of peanut butter cups is a different story.

Ditto for comparisons to "Wendy's Double Stack". That's two "two ounce" burgers it just won't do that much damage because in the end it's just a quarter pound of red meat. Now have three or four of them and that's another story.

Take it from a diabetic that was told "throw away your insulin you don't need it anymore"
