17. WORST CANDY

Twix (1 package, 2 oz.)

* 280 calories
* 27 g sugars
* 14 g fat (11 g saturated)

Twix takes the already-dubious candy-bar reputation and drags it through a murky pool of saturated fat. With more than half the USDA’s daily consumption recommendation for these dangerous fats in each package, this is one hazardous after-lunch snack.

Saturated fat equivalent: 11 strips of bacon

Eat This Instead:

100 Grand (1 package)

* 190 calories
* 22 g sugars
* 8 g fat (5 g saturated)
