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.
