I plan on dying at the ripe old age of 33, subby. Gorging on chocolate is a step in the right direction.

Not clicking that. Ignorance is bliss. Chocolate fueled, sugary bliss.

The occasional chocolate binge is one of life's greatest indulgences.  Don't harsh my chocolate high, subby.

Jesus didn't die for my sins, so I couldn't destroy my body with delicious, delicious chocolate!


Stupid nerds, ruining fun for the rest of us.

Subby, chocolate also makes a great lube. Ask your mom.

I had three hard boiled egg whites with a dash of salt and pepper.
Then had five cigarettes and four cups of coffee with Splenda.
Ambivalent.

Kids got a small pack of skittles, small pack of m&ms and a few starbursts.  They get so much candy from other sources that the Easter bunny doesn't overdo it and gets them other stuff.

I did this after Halloween once.  I saw the store was selling the big bags of twizzlers for 50 cents.  I did the arm sweep into my cart.  I ended up throwing about 8 pounds of twizzlers away 2 years later.  I can't resist those sales even though I know I can't eat that much.  I was like Homer with the big sandwich he couldn't finish, lol.

Last line in the article:
To put the stats into context, one teaspoon is equal to around four grams.
So, a Nestle Easter egg has 15.25 teaspoons of sugar.


61 grams* equates to approximately 97 cm3 of sugar, a cube about 1-3/4" on a side. That would be, in egg size, a larger-than-normal-sized egg, 100% sugar.

Not even Cadbury eggs are that big, and not solid either. The Easter eggs I've always received are about nickel-sized on the long axis.  Where the hell do these super eggs come from, because I've never seen them?

\*also, just to be a bit more pedantic, there's approximately 4.9 ml in a teaspoon, not "about 4." So we're actually talking about just about 12-1/2 teaspoons.

Oh,  just enjoy yourself.  Once in  while isn't going to hurt.

Eat like that every day, that's another story.

As a kid, every Easter we would get the same Woolco solid chocolate rabbit from their $1.44 day specials (not sure if the $1.44 day event was the same in the U.S.).  It didn't even come in a box - it was wrapped in this crinkly see-through packaging.
Then one year my father decided to get the white chocolate version.
That was the day that I learned how much I hate white chocolate.

Meh. I'll be filling my belly with Easter kielbasa.

Without reading the article I'm gonna guess that it makes you smarter and funnier, increases your sex drive, lowers your taxes and doubles the size of your penis.  Am I close?

You might want to re-do that volume calculation. The correct volume of the sugar would be the mass of sugar divided by the density of sugar (i.e. 61/1.59 = 38.4cm3). You appear to have incorrectly multiplied the sugar mass by the density of sugar to obtain your spurious 97cm3 calculated volume.

7.8 teaspoons worth, assuming a US teaspoon of 4.9ml volume. 6.5 teaspoons if using imperial 5.9ml teaspoon (which is likely given that original article is from a British news source). Or about the same as I put in the two mugs of tea I drink before work every morning.

Unfortunately, most holiday chocolate is of inferior quality with very little cocoa or cocoa butter.

I don't give a shiat what it is or isn't. I would slap my own mother to get my hands on some.
