    I wanted to pass it along because I thought it was interesting. I love my MM's, especially my peanut MM's.

    How Far Does A M&M Go?
    =======================

    How far do you need to walk to burn off the calories in one M&M
    candy? Thatís the little marble sized M&Mís, not a candy bar?

    The question was on a health program and I didnít know the answer.

    So how far?

    A. 50 feet
    B. The length of a football field
    C. One-half mile
    D. One mile

    Scroll down for the answer

























    The answer:
    B. 100 yards, the length of a football field.

    That was the answer on the health show.

    Then my question was, "Exactly how many M&M's are in a bag?"
    I didn't know that either so I got up and went to the store.

    I bought a regular and a king size pack of M&M's with peanuts.
    I like peanuts.

    The regular 1.74 ounce bag had 21 M&M's.
    The King Size 3.27 ounce bag had 42 M&M's.

    You need to walk about one and a quarter miles to burn off the
    calories in a regular sized pack and about 2.5 miles for a King
    Sized pack.

    The next time you reach for candy, reach for your walking shoes.

    Great advice 2teens. I think I'll stick to a piece of fruit instead of the empty calories that M&Ms provide.

    LOL Tlc, too funny because I was thinking something very similar! My mother in law, who knoooooooooows I am eating healthy, brought some of the new dark chocolate ones into the house when she visited a couple weeks ago. She said she wanted me to put them in the next care package I sent my hubby. I was thinking.... M&Ms.. lasting in my house for a week... just sitting on my counter?!?!? As soon as she left I dropped them in the trash. My hubby won't mind, they do sell candy where he is lol.

    Wow, for ONE M&M? That's just cruel! And I thought when buying my daughter a pack of M&M's as a treat and only eating 3 I was giving myself a little treat that wouldn't mean much to my exercising. Rats.

    2Teens-

    Thanks for the info. Will you do me a favor and figure it out for like a 12 ounce bottle of Bud Light? That may save me some cash over the weekend

    hmmm,

    well I wonder if the hershey kisses with almonds that are hidden away for special days will be worse. I probably have to walk a couple football fields in that case.

    fireplace, bud light hmmmm, not sure. I dont think it should be that bad for one. Actually, the MM information I got in my email. I am too busy walking football fields so I can have me a hershey kiss,lol.

    Once in a while not going to hurt you all to give your self a little treat whether it be a few MM's or a bud light. Gotta reward yourself for the hard work.
