Chocolate 101: Size Matters!
Before you chew, know the difference between Snack Size, Fun Size, and Miniatures...
Miniatures/Minis are the square-shaped morsels -- those babies are each about a quarter-ounce in weight.
A Snack Size or Fun Size chocolate treat weighs in at a little more than a half-ounce and is usually about 2 inches long.
Not all size-categorized treats are created equal.
We've found seemingly identical Fun Size bars on shelves -- same brand, same flavor -- with varying weights and calorie counts. If you want to be extra-careful, we recommend going by the higher set of stats listed below.
3 Musketeers Mini Bar - 24 calories, 0.7g fat (POINTS® value 1*)
3 Musketeers Fun Size Bar - 63 - 70 calories, 2 - 2.25g fat (POINTS® value 1 - 2*)

HG Heads Up! We worked super-hard to bring you the most accurate, current, and complete candy nutritionals possible. Shelves were scoured, company websites combed, and customer service reps harassed (okay, politely questioned). Ranges are listed for certain entries in an effort to provide all probable stats. When discrepancies were minimal, we listed the higher stats. Happy Halloween!!!
CHEW ON THIS: Saturday, October 31st, is Halloween! Encourage any trick-or-treaters in your life to be safe, raise some money for kids in need, and share their goodies with wise adults who give them good advice. (And check our candy guide before you indulge!)
