The ultimate SmartPoints® guide to Easter candy

Find out exactly how many of those foil-wrapped chocolate eggs fit into your Budget.

With a little planning, you can make room in your Budget for your Easter basket favorites: For example, you could begin your day with a low-SmartPoints value breakfast or brunch—maybe scramble some eggs and serve them with a fruit salad—and use your rollovers to enjoy the chocolate eggs you look forward to all year.

To get a sense of how many SmartPoints you’ll need to dip into your favorite treats, read on for the SmartPoints value of chocolate eggs and bunnies, jelly beans, and more.
