Easter is one of the holidays most Americans take to candies like never before. While we can’t state when this became a tradition, we can authoritatively state that there is not going to be a stop to it anytime soon. All we can hope for is that people understand that some candies are unhealthy, and keep away from them as much as much as possible. Here, we will briefly discuss six of the unhealthiest Easter candies out there.
Cadbury Chocolate Eggs
Don’t let the size of these eggs deceive you. They may look like the tiniest eggs, but they pack calories to a level that is considered very unhealthy. Just six of them will load your body with 95 calories and 4 grams of fat. Imagine what 20 can do to your body.
Hershey’s Hollow Milk Chocolate Egg
If there were to be a competition for the worst candies in the world in terms of calorie count, this one stands a good chance of winning. The shell alone has as much as 570 calories. You really need to steer clear of it.
These may look like your best friends in the Easter basket, but they have the potentials of being your worst enemies too. If you can consume a moderate amount, you will be alright. Taking too much, which is pretty common, will hurt your body.
Lindt Chocolate Carrots
These unique carrots may add variety to your Easter basket, but they are not as healthy or safe as their natural vegetable counterparts. They are low in nutritional value but packs a lot of calories to affect your health negatively.
While they are truly low-fat candies, peeps are not as healthy as you may think. Actually, they are unhealthy, due in part to their heavy carb-count. A single one of them has as much as 8 grams of sugar. A row of four will load your body with 130 calories.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg
All Reese’s egg-milk chocolate eggs are unhealthy, especially the ones with festive Easter elements. If you must take some of their chocolates, stick to the traditional Peanut Butter Cup.
You must prioritize your health, even while celebrating Easter. The sweet elements may hurt you in the long run. It is better to avoid them completely.
