Sweets topped the chart on Pregnancy.org's "Cravings" survey. We've taken the question a step further and asked which Halloween treat most tempts your palate.
Pregnancy brings out "special cravings." With all those Halloween treats bombarding you in the store for months and now simply E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E, which candies are calling your name the loudest? We polled our Pregnancy.org's pregnant moms and discovered the top four.

|Specific Candies||How Many Wanted|
|Those scrumptious "bite sized" chocolate bars||40%|
|Nerds, smarties, something sweet AND sour||15%|
|Orange & black wrapped taffy||4%|
|Another candy treat||8%|
It's up to you to decide how often and how much you'll indulge in holiday sweets while you're pregnant. Skipping those treats can be tough even without hormones sabotaging your efforts. We've gathered these ideas to help you keep those boundaries and munch in moderation.
