How Many Calories In Easter Eggs
Chocolate Easter Eggs come in all shapes and sizes, with manufactures presenting their goods differently in a bid to lure your custom to their product.
Easter is a great chance for chocolate manufacturers to cash in on the festivities. The bad news for consumers is the calories that can be unknowingly consumed enjoying these delicious temptations.
It would be a monumental task to list how many calories there are in all those different sized Easter Eggs from hundreds of manufacturers in the market place, individually.
What we can do is to generalize and give you a rough guide as to how many calories the normal size Easter Egg contains. You can then roughly equate calories against the average size, if your egg is smaller or larger.
In the image to the right we have 3 different sizes. Small caramel filled eggs at the front, A medium size Easter Egg, which is around the popular size bought by consumers and at the back a chocolate bunny.
A good guide is to work on the amount of calories in 100 grams of chocolate.
Calories in Easter Egg Guide
- 100 grams of chocolate = 530 calories - 2219 kj
- 1 medium Easter Egg 100g = 530 calories
- 1 small caramel filled egg = 60 calories
- 1 average size chocolate bunny 180g = 980 calories
- 1 large Easter Egg 200g = 1060 calories
- 1 average hard candy egg 100g = 370 calories
The above table is a guide only. Most Easter Eggs will have the weight of the item on the label, but may not have full nutritional information. If you work on a rough guide of 50 calories for every 10 grams of chocolate you won't be far off the mark.
Enjoy your Easter and your chocolate eggs. Just remember Easter Eggs contain a lot of calories, which can be bad for those weight watchers.
