Do We Eat Too Much Easter Candy? (Infographic)

If you’ve ever wondered just how much candy Americans consume over the Easter holiday, this infographic has all the sinfully-delicious details.

i love quality chocolate and although i do not celebrate Easter, i do receive chocolate from Christian friends which usually i pass on to others. I miss the Easter home-made ricotta tarts and breads my mother used to make during my childhood.

Candy is not my temptation so I don't buy any candy for Easter. I only buy candy for trick or treaters for Halloween.

Chocolate is available all year round but easter eggs taste amazing - not sure if it is because they are wrapped in foil or that they are fresher - but they a delicious and magical!!! Maybe it's the kid in me....

im a total chocoholic so even though i dont celebrate easter, its still a gd excuse 2 buy a few eggs....which i always devour .....but yeah, i think we go mad dont we....and moderation always seems 2 take a back seat when it comes 2 easter....i think people just use it for a time to pig out ....its definitely more a time for kids though...thanks for sharing
