The Best and Worst Halloween Candy for Your Health

Some Halloween Candy is apparently worse for your teeth than others.

With trick or treating just around the corner, Insurer Delta Dental has released a new list of the best and worst kind of treats for the teeth.

Among the worst are sticky, chewy candies such as candy corn and gummy bears. If you are looking for a better option, look to plain chocolate. Since the candy melts quickly, it decreases the amount of time the sugar is in contact with your teeth.

Other good options for your teeth are sugar-free gum and lollipops.
