Oh, Halloween, how I love thee. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and it's my wife's favorite, too. That doesn't mean we get to pig out on Halloween candy, but we do still get to eat it! WW is a lifestyle, not a diet, so don't feel bad if you indulge on Halloween – or any time.
Weight Watchers Candy
We love candy but if we aren't careful we will go over our points mindlessly chewing on it. Having a plan to stay on track during Halloween and every other day of the year is important. You don't want to take one step forward and two steps back!
If you find yourself struggling to put the candy away, give it away to neighbors, donate it to the dentist's office (they usually do a candy drive), or bring it to work and leave it in the break room. Do whatever you have to do to get the rest of the candy out of your sight, after you've eaten your choice of pieces first, of course.
Candy too tempting? Not your thing? Check out my list of Low Point WW Snacks!
How many points are in Halloween Candy?
The amount of points in Halloween candy varies greatly, depending on the candies you choose. Whether they are worth the points or not is 100% personal opinion. My wife thinks anything chocolate is worth any amount of points, whereas I wouldn't eat a full-size Snickers bar even if it was only 2 Points (which it's not, by the way, a full size Snickers is 12 Points).

Chocolate Halloween Candy With Freestyle Points
All of the chocolate Halloween candies in this section are 1 Freestyle Point. Weight Watchers does not have you count fat, calories, or carbs, but I do watch my carbs so I like to be aware of Points AND carbs at a glance.
These points values are for ONE fun size candy bar unless otherwise noted. Be careful though! For example, 1 fun size Baby Ruth is 4 points but two fun size Baby Ruths are 9 points. If you're eating more than one in a sitting, the extra points can add up FAST!
