If you’re looking for “healthy” when buying Halloween candy, you’re probably doing it wrong. That being said, I found a list of major brand-name candy bars, ranked according to how bad they are for you.

They’re not that high in calories compared to other candy bars, but they have a lot more sugar. Sometimes twice as much. Here are the top five candy bars to avoid . . .

  1. 3 Musketeers.
  2. Milky Way.
  3. Baby Ruth.
  4. Chocolatey PayDay. (Hershey’s just launched them last year. They’re like a normal PayDay bar wrapped in chocolate.)
  5. Mr. Goodbar.

Snickers, Twix, Butterfinger, KitKats and Crunch bars also made the list, but ranked lower. So they’re slightly better, but still a long way off from health food.

No mention of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so they’re healthy, right?
