Regardless of what team you're on, you may have found yourself wondering just how many calories and how much fun is packed into each and every mini candy. Below is a list of these fun-sized candies, ranked by calories, and a caloric equivalent of each sweet mini. 

Keep in mind that calories are not bad. Calories are energy. Energy is good. Energy is fun. That means, that if a mini candy bar is high in calories, it is high in energy, and therefore means more fun. So, enjoy!

1 Pack of Smarties = 8 Blueberries

These may not actually make you any smarter, but each tiny roll of Smarties contains 10 calories to fuel your brain. That's roughly the caloric equivalent of eight blueberries. 

1 Tootsie Roll = 2 Cups Arugula

Tootsie Rolls: You either love 'em, or you hate 'em. But no matter which way you feel, each mini roll has 11 calories. That's roughly equal to the caloric equivalent of 2 cups of arugula.
