Forget ham, asparagus, buttery biscuits and all of that other Easter fare. When the annual holiday rolls around that only means one thing for the sweet tooths out there: lots of sugary, chocolate-ey, candied goodies. These are extra special indulgences because they only come around this time of year.
We’re talking cream eggs, mini eggs, flavoured jujubes and jelly beans… peanut buttery goodness, creamy chocolate and more. It’s a candy-lover’s dream.
Unfortunately, these treats can also be a nightmare on your waistline. While they say 100 calorie snacks are usually the way to go when trying to do things in moderation, few of us actually sit down to think about what 100 calories of our favourite Easter treats actually looks like.
So we did the work for you. Now you can have your bunnies, and eat them too. In moderation, of course.
