    With Easter just around the corner, you’ve probably been readying yourself to hang with the fam and gorge on that huge arsenal of chocolate eggs you’re busy stockpiling under the bed. And when it comes to the annual Easter chocolate haul, the bigger the better, right?

    And although we totally don’t discriminate when it comes to chocolate (hello Tesco’s £1.50 Smarties egg), before you chuck on the pjs and let loose on all your treats, you might be a tiny bit curious to find out how many calories they’re actually packin’. The figures are pretty eye-watering. So we’ve done the maths, now you can focus entirely on Netflix and munch.

    Here’s our calorie breakdown for your favourite eggs —from the seriously indulgent to ‘it’s basically salad, guys’:

    Soz, now you can’t laze about claiming total calorie ignorance, but there’s always that long Easter Sunday walk to limit any damage done to the waistline…as if. And don’t feel too guilty about basically OD-ing on the sweet stuff, chocolate has loads of health benefits.  It’s been found to lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of having a stroke and apparently it’s even good for our brains, reports the Telegraph.

    This ultimate comfort food can do no wrong in our books…
