Whether you’re taking part in an Easter egg hunt or dipping into a colleague’s bowl of Easter treats at work, it can be tempting to overindulge on the seemingly endless supply of chocolate eggs, jelly beans and candy bunnies.
Believe it or not, Easter candy sales are even expected to overshadow last year’s Halloween candy sales. But if you’re trying to eat healthy – and not binge on Easter chocolate – you’ll want to keep track of what you’re nibbling on.
One way to do that is to know what 100 calories or your favourite candy looks like. Here’s a list of some of the most popular Easter treats.
100 calories of Easter candy:
Reese’s Pieces Eggs – 6 1/3 pieces
Nestle Crunch Nest Eggs – 3 1/3 pieces
Cadbury’s Creme Egg – 2/3 of an egg

Jordan Almonds – 6 pieces
Jelly Belly Beans – 25 pieces
