The Amount Of Sugar In A Creme Egg Is Actually Horrifying

Sorry to spoil your Easter, gang, but we have legit health concerns for die-hard Creme Egg fans.

The Easter Bunny arrives in three sleeps and with him -- or her -- comes a truckload of chocolate, filled with a truckload of sugar.

Most will shrug their shoulders, mutter a 'meh' and unwrap another Cadbury egg while thinking, "Who really cares? Easter is only once a year, I can eat what I want."

Well, friends, you should care, especially if that egg you're unwrapping is a Creme Egg, because this is how much sugar is really inside:

Seriously.

That, in between the egg and pile of sugar, is a two pence coin, which is slightly bigger than a 10 cent coin.

Every Creme Egg has 26 grams of sugar, which is about six heaped teaspoons. That's slightly more than a Coca Cola mini can.

UK mum Rebecca Bilham shared the alarming photo on Facebook last year.

The sky-high level of the white stuff is mainly thanks to the gooey, fondant filling.

According to World Health Organisation guidelines from 2015, adults should consume no more than 25g of sugar a day, for children, that's 19g a day -- less than a single gooey egg.

Eat what you want this Easter, but don't say we didn't warn you.
