The Easter Bunny Could Care Less about Weight Watchers


I have my dad to thank for my sweet tooth. I am a sucker for all things chocolate, nutty, and all-around gooey goodness. Which is why I love "candy holidays". For many people, Halloween is that time of year to indulge in bags of candy corns or Reece's Peanut Butter Cups. And, while I love Halloween candy, I love Easter candy even more.

Robin's Eggs are a personal favorite, closely followed by Snickers Eggs (they are so much better than the regular bar!), and, of course, the original Cadbury Creme Eggs. I'll even plow through a sleeve of Peeps!

Recently, I wandered down the Easter candy aisle at Target and my eyes lit up at the sight of all the candy. Thinking, "how bad could this be?", I started loading up the cart with my favorites before pausing to remember I needed to calculate the points in everything before I brought it into my home.

It was not good news.

Robin's Eggs (qty 14) = 4 points
1 Snickers Egg = 4 points
1 Cadbury Creme Egg = 4 points

I was visibly upset for the rest of the shopping trip.

Easter candy: 1, Jen: 0

  3. All these single eggs are MORE POINTS than 8 oz of wine. Again, I'd go with teh cup o' wine. But that's just me.

  4. Yeah I hear Easter Egg Chocolate is even higher in fat & sugar (and points) than normal chocolate.
