Coming in the joint top spot for the Easter eggs worst for your teeth are Galaxy Ripple and Galaxy Minstrels Easter Eggs with 68g of sugar per 100g.

Third place is M&M's Salted Caramel with 65g of sugar per 100g. Caramel is pure sugar, and when combined with the chocolate it is unsurprising the product can be so bad for your teeth.

Following closely behind are Smarties Orange (64.9g), White Chocolate Twix (62g) and Creme Egg (61.5g), respectively ranking in fourth, fifth and sixth.

The Easter egg with the least sugar, with only 29g per 100g, is unsurprisingly Green & Black’s. Dark chocolate has a high cacao content and less sugar, giving the signature bitter taste and is less damaging for the teeth.

Following in second place for the Easter egg least bad for your teeth, many will be glad to hear, is the Ferrero Collection with 39.9g of sugar. In third place for lowest sugar content is Ferrero Rocher with 41.8g of sugar per 100g. Both rankings contain less sugar because of their high nut content.
