Food Showdown: Battle of the Chocolate Eggs

By , SparkPeople Blogger
With Easter morning just on the horizon and the accompanying pastel treats showing up on grocery store shelves, we've all had sweets on the brain lately. Candy takes on many cute and cuddly forms during this time of year, whether it's in the shape of a bunny, a chick, or an egg. Personally, we're crazy about those creamy, candy-filled chocolate eggs. Between two of the most popular egg-shaped candies, the Cadbury Crème Egg and the Reese's Peanut Butter Egg, which one will set you back the least amount of calories this Easter (and in the following days of leftover Easter candy)?
The Winner: Cadbury Crème Egg!
At 150 calories and 5 grams of fat per piece, the Cadbury Crème Egg beats out the Reese's Peanut Butter Egg by a nose. The peanut-buttery egg contains 170 calories and 10 grams of fat per piece. If you do decide to indulge in a candy-filled egg this Easter, make sure to stop at just one since those calories can add up fast! Alternatively, munch on some jelly beans (6 calories per bean) or Marshmallow Peeps (28 calories per Peep)--or make like a rabbit and just grab some carrot sticks!
