One of the real pleasures of my morning routine is to enjoy a good cup of coffee while reading the USA Today. This morning I almost spit out my coffee when I saw the Snapshots article on the number of calories in a 5.5 inch tall solid milk chocolate bunny…
According to the USA Today; the entire bunny is a whopping 958 calories! The ears are 49 calories, head 82, body 537, legs 279, and the tail is 11 calories.
My advice; eat the tail and give the rest to your mother-in-law!
Other noteworthy Easter candy calorie counts: Jelly Belly jelly beans; 4 calories per jelly bean. Malted Milk Balls; 20 calories per milk ball, Peeps Marshmallow Chicks; 28 calories per chick or 1 tray (5 chicks) is 140 calories. Robin’s malted milk eggs; 90 calories for 5 mini eggs. My personal favorite – Trader Joe’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups; 130 calories for 5 mini cups.
