What Will It Take to Work Off Your Favorite Easter Candy?

What Will It Take to Work Off Your Favorite Easter Candy?

When you get right down to it, Easter is about two things: eggs and candy. Which means when the Easter bunny brings you all of your favorite holiday confections this Sunday, he’ll also bring you a few extra pounds–unless, that is, you know how much you’ll need to exercise in order to work them off. Here’s a handy list of the calorie counts lurking in your favorite Easter treats, along with a few suggestions for the type of activities you can do to burn them off. Note that the given number of calories burned are for a 135-pound woman, which means most of us will have to exercise longer.

  • Cadbury Creme Egg, 150 calories: A 30-minute game of doubles tennis.
  • Pack of five original Peeps, 140 calories: 20 minutes of moderate rowing.
  • One milk chocolate-covered Peep, 110 calories: A brisk, 30-minute walk.
  • A dozen Cadbury Mini-Eggs, 190 calories: A 30-minute cross-training session of running and walking.
