It turns out the scariest thing about Halloween isn't the haunted houses, ghosts or costumes — it's all the sugar we often end up gobbling up in one night.

Candy and Halloween go hand-in-hand, and even if we're way too old to go trick-or-treating ourselves, we all know we're guilty of eating a handful of candy from our office party or our children's candy bag.

But how bad can it be, especially when chocolate bars and candy packages are incredibly tiny? We took a look at some popular candies and chocolate bars and ranked them by their sugar content. While many weren't surprising, we couldn't believe what the non-chocolate entries had in store.

And no, this doesn't mean you should never eat candy again or keep it away from your children -- it just gives you a good idea on how to portion out candy options post-Halloween. Did we miss your favourite? Let us know in the comments below:
