Easter Candy Facts


How's the sugar high going? I think I ate about 100 jelly beans (Brach's baby!) and the girls consumed quite a bit of chocolate.

I picked up some fun facts from Huff Post:

The average youngster will be chowing down on $36 worth of Easter treats, including an average of seven chocolate eggs, 10 Marshmallow Peeps and two liters of soft drinks between Good Friday and Easter Monday. Editor's note--maybe consider going super clean with the diet tomorrow.

Easter can mean an additional 5,000 candy calories. Editor's note--plan some extra time at the playground this week.


And some more facts:

Ninety million chocolate Easter bunnies are produced each year. And here's something interesting 76% of us think bunnies should be eaten ears first. Only 5% said bunnies should be eaten feet first, while 4% favored eating the tail first. (according to infoplease.com)--Editor's note: maybe consider buying a new toothbrush this week?

Thanks to HERSHEY’S Bunny Trail for helping out with Easter at Momtrends. They sent: CADBURY Hollow Milk Chocolate Bunny, YORK Peppermint Pattie Eggs, HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates, HERSHEY'S Solid Milk Chocolate SNAPSY Bunny and REESE'S Mini REESTER BUNNIES Chocolates.

Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get a Hershey's basket filled with candy.
