According to the National Retail Federation's Consumer 2006 Halloween Intentions and Actions Survey, 96 percent of Americans will buy Halloween candy this year, with the average consumer spending $18.72. And, admit it, you eat half the candy yourself, so study up on Women's Health magazine's better-for-you candy guide. (Hey, if they're better for you, they're better for the kids too.)
They divide their top healthy picks into chewy, chocolatey, fruity, minty, nutty and sour. Surely, there's one you like on the nice list.
