Whether you are a kid or a kid at heart, Halloween is a fun time to dress up in cheesy costumes, watch scary movies, and of course, eat your body weight in Halloween candy!

So what’s your favorite Halloween candy? Snickers? Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? Milky Ways? Or are you more of a hard candy type who goes for the Smarties or the Candy Corn? Final question – is your mouth watering yet?!

Here are 20 popular types of Halloween candy, along with the amount of time you need to practice yoga to burn off those calories:

This chart is based on the typical ‘bite size’ candies typically given out during Halloween (not the full size) and the calorie conversions are based on a 120-pound woman doing a more upbeat flow-style yoga practice.
