Apparently in the UK alone, we will spend £220million on chocolate eggs. Cadburys will sell 500 million of their creme eggs globally and will net £30million on sales of the mini eggs.
A Cadbury's creme egg is 180calories and you would have to spend 35 minutes running to burn off the calories of a typical 250 calorie small chocolate egg.
The Lidl's Easter bunny is an astounding 544 calories, 32% of which is fat and 52% sugars - that is a lot of running to burn those calories off!
When I was growing up, adults didn't have chocolate eggs, they were just for children only and we only had one, not half a dozen like kids do nowadays. Why have we all become so self indulgent?
Anyway, thanks for reading my public service announcement.
Forget about the eggs, buy flowers instead and have a really happy Easter!
