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.
