How Many Calories Are in Easter Candy?

This Is How Many Jumping Jacks It Takes to Work Off a Peep

Easter only comes once a year, so you should absolutely enjoy a Cadbury Creme Egg, some jelly beans, and a few Peeps. But just in case you're watching your waistline, it's good to know how much exercise it takes to work those candies off.

Did you know that one minute of vigorous jumping jacks (about 60) burns nine calories? It may seem like a lot of work, but if you have an uncontrollable Reese's Peanut Butter Egg obsession, what's a few (hundred) jumping jacks?!
