Weight Watcher' Cheat Sheet: Easter Candy Favorites

I find it extremely enlightening to know I can splurge on 1 Russell Stover's Marshmallow Egg for only 3 points!  Notice the portion sizes too.  If you're like me, part of successfully snacking is "tricking" the mind.  I love know that I can either have 7 mini 3 Musketeers or 4 mini Snickers for the same amount of points.  Um, I'll take the 3 Musketeers, thank you very much.  It's also helpful to see that there is NO REASON FOR A SOLID CHOCOLATE BUNNY in ANYONE'S Easter Basket.  A serving size of the solid is only 1/4 of the bunny, which is the same exact points for and ENTIRE hollow chocolate bunny.  Again, being able to eat "the whole thing" instead of a quarter of it sends a signal to my brain that I have more than enough to satisfy my craving.

But my BEST find?  You got it.  The SweeTarts Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies.  I can have 4 pieces for 1 point (or 8 for 3 points).  WootHoot!  I like to buy these to keep in my desk at work.  I find that if I pull 4 pieces out, and suck on one at a time, the craving for something sweet is completely satisfied!

What about Peeps?

Peeps made the list! See above. Although I am surprised to see the chocolate mousse ones are less points. I need to buy those more.

Sorry, I hadn't read the list yet. I was just surprised you didn't mention Peeps. I thought Peeps were one of your food groups.
