Worst Food in the World: Fried Cadbury Eggs

With each changing season seems to come a new slew of foods with catastrophic calorie counts—you health-minded foodies out there know exactly what we’re talking about.

And if you’ve ever been curious how bad these trendy eats actually are, you’re going to love our latest column: Worst Food in the World. In each installment, we find out just how villainous these nutritional nightmares really are. In today’s edition, the Fried Cadbury Eggs, AKA Deep-Fried Easter Crème Eggs, take center stage.

We’re all familiar with those chocolate eggs filled with cream that hit the candy aisles every spring. Eating just one pumps your body with 150 calories, 20 grams of sugar and 20 percent of the day's saturated fat—which isn’t so great just on its own. However, indulging in just one candy egg each Easter likely won't derail your weight loss efforts much. If you overindulge, you'll raise your blood sugar levels–plus, wreck your waistline. Wondering what could be even worse? Coating your Cadbury Egg in a thick batter, drowning it in a pool of vegetable grease and topping it with powdered sugar and chocolate sauce. This over-indulgent creation probably packs more calories and fat per square centimeter than any other holiday treat we’ve seen this season. In fact, some of the fried egg recipes we came across yield candies that carry more calories than seven—yes, seven—Chips Ahoy! Chewy Cookies! Disgusting, right?

Most people already sit down to a full, calorie-laden meal on Easter, so adding deep-fried creme eggs to your holiday menu is really just adding insult to injury. Not to mention, Easter marks the beginning of spring —you know, the season that comes right before the months in which beachwear becomes practically mandatory. Our advice: skip this diet disaster and satisfy your sweet tooth this Easter with a classic, unaltered Cadbury Crème Egg—it’s the smartest, healthiest way to have your cake and eat it, too. Plus, when you’re looking toned and fit this summer, you’ll be happy you followed our advice—we’re sure of it!
