As a kid I remember Mom saying “If you eat too much candy you’ll be sick!” That never stopped me from my trick-or-treat sugar high or from the candy coming right back out the way it went in on Halloween night. So how much is too much?

“According to the American Chemical Society, a man who weighs 195 pounds (that’s the national average) would need to eat 155 “fun size” Snickers bars in one sitting to drop dead, while the average woman (166 pounds) would need to scarf down 214 individual Reese’s peanut butter cups or 1,527 piece of candy corn, reports The L.A. Times. Most children are obviously a lot smaller, so don’t let them eat the whole bag!”halloween-candy
