How Many Jumping Jacks It Takes To Burn Off Halloween Candy?

It’s actually how many hundreds of them it takes to burn off one little fun-size candy bar.

Even though the candies are small, those calories add up quickly. We’ll tell you just how quickly, but be warned – it might make you want to rethink reaching into your trick-or-treater stash for that 12th Reese’s cup.

A minute of vigorous jumping jacks, which is about 60, burns nine calories. That sounds like a lot of work to burn off an uncontrollable Reese’s habit. This is how long it takes to burn off one fun-size of these popular candies (calculations based on a 150-pound woman.)

  • 3 Musketeers - 63 calories, 420 jumping jacks, or seven minutes worth.
  • 100 Grand - 95 calories, 634 jumping jacks, or doing them for 10 minutes 30 seconds.
  • Almond Joy - 80 calories, 534 jumping jacks, or eight minutes 54 seconds of them.
  • Butterfinger - 85 calories, 567 jumping jacks, or nine minutes 24 seconds worth.
