If you're anything like me, then you totally appreciate how awesome Easter candy is. From the Reese's eggs to the Cadbury Creme eggs, there's literally something for every candy lover this season.
But in a world where being fit and healthy seems to be everyone's goal, is there really room for delicious Easter treats?
Fear not, fellow Healthkickers! With these 3 "healthy" candy alternatives, now you can indulge without feeling too guilty.
Jelly Beans: They may be small, but you can eat a handful of these and only take in 40 calories. Different brands obviously may have different calorie counts, but on average you can eat a plastic egg's worth of jelly beans for under 100 calories! And for a spin on the traditional jelly beans, try Starburst's awesome new jelly beans!
Sugar-Free Peeps: These "sweetened with Splenda" chicks are a re-vamped version of the traditional marshmallow treat! For anyone who is looking to cut out sugar from your diet, try this treat. While 20 calories per peep seems like a bit much, you're saving yourself the sugar while still satisfying your sweet tooth.
Gertrude Hawk's Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Meltaway Egg: What a long name for such a small treat! If you absolutely have to have a hunk of chocolate for your Easter celebration, try this festive sugar-free peanut butter egg. While the calorie count isn't listed, you can be assured that the sugar count is 0 grams.
