3 out of 9 - this would upset me because I like to e right. But this is a good sign, as a diabetic - I do not eat a lot of candy - only need to know how many grams of sugar in the hard candy for low sugar readings.

I didn't care for this quiz either, SctF75. We need to know the important, useful foods, not the couple of ozs or whatever of stuff we won't (or shouldn't) be eating. I know it was 'fun' to put this together to educate us. But ...

I didn't care for this quiz... it's more than just calories in food- and by thinking you are doing 'better' by having one mini candy bar vs. another is silly. If you really can't resist, just have one, but if you can resist, have the banana!!!! These little bars are chock full of fakey flavors and ingredients, simple sugars, corn syrups, cheap chocolates, sugars, and nuts...

5/9 and I love candy! I guess that's why I have put it on the back burner.

The hard part of this quiz was figuring out the size of some of these treats.

I am both a chocoholic and (as my sister puts it) a chocolate snob. I did lousy on this test, because I don't eat these brands...but test me on Harry and Davids or Ethel M's and I'll get at least a 90%!!!

I am a diabetic so I don't eat a much candy.

4/9 - Thought I was headed for 100% wrong when I missed the first 4 in a row. Don't eat much candy and sure don't read the nutrition info when I do!
