There Is A Limit To How Many Mini Candy Bars You Can Eat

posted by Amy James - 

EATING 262 FUN SIZE CANDY BARS WOULD KILL YOU

According to scientists at the American Chemical Society, there is a limit to the amount of candy you can safely eat. The researchers found that eating more than 13.5 grams of sugar per pound of body weight at the same time would most likely kill you.

That means about five-and-a-half pounds of sugar for a 180-pound person. Or, 262 fun-sized bars. Or, 1,627 pieces of candy corn.

So enjoy your Halloween candy, but try to limit your intake to less than 200 pieces … just to be safe.
