Here’s What 100 Calories Of Easter Candy Looks Like

easter candy

When I was a kid, Easter was a big deal. Not only did it mean winter had finally subsided, but it also meant (for the kids, anyway) festive trappings that I loved. Colored eggs! Baskets full of plastic shreddings that get stuck in the carpet! And, of course, the hat-trick of killer Easter candy: Peeps, jelly beans, and the Cadbury Creme Egg. Oh, that Cadbury Creme Egg.

Though I don’t color eggs or have a basket to speak of, I am still a sucker for candy–so much so, in fact, that I find it hard to portion out how much is a yummy treat (because, really, an Easter without a Peep? Inconceivable.), and how much will make me feel like….well, like a kid who’s eaten too much candy. And while we’re not huge on calorie-counting around these parts, we do like to help you (and ourselves) eyeball out what a smart portion looks like. And, conventionally, that’s around 100 calories. Just enough to be delicious, but no so much that you’ll feel like Augustus Gloop.

So without further ado, here’s what 100 calories of your favorite (or, at least, my favorite) Easter candy looks like.

    I took part in a massive bowl of Easter Candy during the Mad Men premiere, and pretty much ruined my desire for any more Easter Candy. I think I probably ate like 10 of these servings in one sitting–I did not feel good afterwards.

      Well then, darling Brianna, as much as we are fond of everyone at BlissTree, you are NOT part of our actual family.

      I believe that those “one or two people” Hanna knows who can eat a Creme Egg all in one sitting would be her mother. (Who has NEVER said the words “too sweet” in her life.)

      This is a great, and timely article.

    “I think I maybe know one or two people who can actually eat an entire Cadbury Creme Egg in one sitting” WHAT.
