Okay friends, here’s the scoop. As I’m sure you know by now, Weight Watchers launched a new program that completely redefined the values of our Points system. This means that everything you knew about Points Plus is now irrelevant and Smart Points are the new Weight Watchers tracking system. With the introduction to Smart Points came the recalculating of everything we had the PP values memorized on. This, of course, includes our beloved Easter candy. While I had an entire Easter Candy Cheat Sheet made up with Points Plus values (and it’s still valid for those who chose to stay on that plan), I felt compelled to write up another cheat sheet for the majority of us who transitioned to the Beyond the Scale plan with Smart Points.
Due to the nature of Smart Points, which really cracks down on our sugar intake (and for a good reason), you will notice that the Smart Points values of your favorite Easter goodies have gone up drastically. While this is in fact a sad thing, don’t shoot the messenger. I’m just here to tell it like it is. I didn’t get a hold of every candy out there, but I did pick up some of my personal favorites and I wanted to share the calculations with you. Without further ado, here’s the Easter Candy Cheat Sheet with Smart Points.
