Healthier Candy Choices – Payday® Candy
The Payday® candy bar is one of the healthier candy choices. It is still candy. Payday® is not a health food and yet it is very similar or even better in ingredients than most protein or power bars. The Payday® is a good choice candy bar when you are looking for healthier Halloween choices without taking all of the fun out of Halloween.
Payday® is high in protein
Just like most power bars Payday® includes a healthy dose of protein. Payday® is a peanut and caramel candy bar. It is delicious and nutritious. Peanuts are not really a nut, but a legume. Legumes are edible seeds enclosed in pods like black beans and soybeans. Peanuts contain protein and amino acids, the building blocks for muscle. I actually use Payday® as a protein bar for may post workout snack sometimes. Peanuts are natural sources of vitamin E and B vitamins. The B vitamins found in peanuts are important to energy production in your body. Milk, soy powder and egg whites also add to the protein in a Payday®.
Payday® is high in carbohydrates
Carbohydrates are important for energy production and also muscle building. The sugar in a Payday® is corn syrup. This is not the healthiest choice of sugars and yet it is not the worst choice either. Corn syrup is far better than the high fructose corn syrup that is in most candies. The carbohydrates in Payday® are great for a post work out snack and a better choice for your kids on Halloween.
Payday® is low in chemicals
The Payday® candy bar has low in artificial flavors, chemicals or colors and relatively low in “unknown” additives. The Payday® has only carrageenan, (a plant based color), mono and diglycerides, (made from coconuts). Although I do not advocate those ingredients as being good choices, the Payday® is a pretty “clean” candy or protein bar compared to the competition.
