Guess How Many Calories Are In Your Favorite Chocolate Bunnies and Eggs!

chocolate bunnies and eggsEaster bunnies made of chocolate aren’t really that old a tradition, having been born in Germany in the 1800’s. Although other types of Easter candy like Peeps, jellybeans, and Cadbury eggs are extremely popular, the National Confectioners Association says that on Easter children head for chocolate Easter bunnies first. Adults probably do, too.

Chocolate Easter eggs are even younger than the chocolate bunnies.  John Cadbury made the first French eating chocolate in 1842, but the first Cadbury Easter eggs didn’t arrive until 1875 and were a far cry from today’s Cadbury Crème egg. Now there are tons of different types of chocolate eggs:  solid, hollow, and with all kinds of fillings.
