I complained about my Nemesis the Easter Bunny on here last year, and here we are again. 2012 and the grocery stores are full of the Cadbury creme eggs. I can taste the sweet chocolate and creme as I type this. No I'm not eating one right now, I just know from memory how deliciously sinful these things are. It's an effort to walk by them in the grocery store and not buy one. "Come on Kimmy, just one won't hurt." Yes, one would hurt because I would keep going back for more. How do I avoid buying? I read the ingredient list and calorie information.

Sugar baby. The number one ingredient is sugar. No brainer but it's right there in plain print. There's also the calorie count. 150 calories doesn't sound like a lot, but when you figure it would take a good 15-20 minutes on the treadmill or jumping rope to burn one of these little things, it hardly seems worth the effort. I'll save my calories for something else. :)
You didn't get me last year and you aren't getting me this year Easter Bunny!! Nyah nyah! :)
