Easter Candy Cheat Sheet |Weight Watchers Smart Points Edition

EasterTitle

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.

My Favorite Easter Treats

EasterTreatsTitle

 

With Easter less than a week away, my tastebuds can’t help but long for the chocolate treats that I have been able to enjoy every single year: Fannie May Chocolate.  Every year, for as long as I can remember, a solid milk chocolate bunny rabbit by Fannie May has shown up in my Easter basket.  The confections that come out of this amazing shop fill my mouth and heart with chocolatey joy.  The only problem is, this year I’m in North Carolina.  There are a TON of store fronts in Illinois, and many in surrounding states, however, currently the nearest shop to me is in Ohio…  That kind of puts a wrench in my “day after Easter” chocolate shopping 😉  However, even though  I won’t have the tasteful pleasure of enjoying these confections this year, I still wanted to share some of my holiday favorites with you.

We all know that while the real reason for Easter is celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, confectioners all over the place have made the Easter season an amazing time to find awesome candies and chocolates to celebrate the season as well.  I know there are candies and treats that each one of us get excited over, and it’s really easy to have an extra piece (or 5) and have those calories and Points Plus values add up before we know it.  That’s why I’ve compiled a list of some of the major Easter themed treats out there and put the Points Plus values of these springtime goodies right on the list.  With this Easter Candy Weight Watchers Points Plus Cheat Sheet, you can enjoy your treats while knowing exactly what they’ll cost you. Below are some of the more popular treats.  Sorry I couldn’t get every single one, but that would have taken me until Christmas to write up for you.   Please note that for many of these I divided the information up into what a single serving would cost as well as what 2 servings would cost , because we all know that sometimes a single serving just isn’t enough.  🙂
