The Best Easter Candies To Eat If You’re On A Diet

Twizzlers Easter Grass Candy

They don’t call it a low-fat snack for nothing! The festive, grass-colored candy is diet-friendly anyway you pull it, with a single piece claiming a just 8 calories. 


Six entire rolls carry a meager 150 calories. Although they might not be your first choice for Easter candy, they’re a nice alternative if you’re looking to snack (somewhat) sensibly.

Hershey’s Kisses

The pastel-colored candies are ubiquitous when it comes to Easter basket prep, and for good reason: Kisses are delicious, bite-sized, and totally justifiable at 25 calories each.

Jelly Beans

One serving (25 pieces) is just 100 calories, so if you’re looking for something to snack on for a while, beans are probably your best bet. Grab a multi-pack for some variety, or keep it classic with these beloved favorites. 


If you’ve ever felt that Peeps are a bit … insubstantial … that’s because they are. A single Peep clocks in at a cool 28 calories — pretty low by most candy standards. Not so fast, though, if you’re thinking that makes them healthy — they’re made mostly of sugar.

Reese’s Eggs

Reese's Eggs


In the world of Easter candies, few are more beloved than Reese’s Eggs. The candies come individually wrapped, meaning you’re less likely to go hog-wild and eat a handful. And although one egg will cost you 85 calories, they’re substantial enough to justify the splurge.
