M&M's Not So Sweet Side

To be honest, I have never really been one to track my eating habits. Luckily, I live with a calorie counter who has opened my eyes to many interesting facts. I was snacking on my beloved peanut M&M's and decided to look into its caloric information. I found an online calorie counter which told me that one single peanut M&M has 10.3 calories.

Now this may not mean much to you but check the following out:

You will need to run the length of a football field to burn that off!
Now this is assuming you are about 150 lbs -but still. You eat an entire package of that chocolaty goodness and you will be running for days to come. Now if you will excuse me, I have a mini marathon to complete…



  1. wow that really hurts my heart, I pop at least four of those in my mouth at at time :(

  2. How does it compare to the normal M&Ms? I'm hoping the peanut ones are higher in calories! (I'm allergic to peanuts :P)

  3. That's amazing! You really don't realize how unhealthy something is when it tastes so damn good! Well, it atleast goes unnoticed until those extra few pounds take up residence on your behind.

    Keep doing what your doing! Really liking your blog.

  4. Wow, that ALMOST doesn't make it worth it, but I think I rather do the run!

  5. Oh no! This is so horrible to hear. Peanut M&M's are my favourite! But I agree with what Jenna said, I'd rather do the run!

  6. Just means I'll be hitting the bag an extra hour tomorrow haha
