How The Food Industry Hides Behind Serving Sizes

You’re standing in the aisle of your favorite grocery store, staring at the back of a label on your favorite food.

250 calories ain’t bad!” you say to yourself.

But wait!

There ’s math to be done.

(I sucked at math in school by the way.)

It’s amazing to see the game that gets played with servings per container.

One of my favorites back in the day was Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Chunk Fudge.

Looking at the label, you see 250-something calories on the back of the half pint.

The part that’s really cool is that the little half pint contains 4 servings!

I call B.S.!

Imagine serving a family of 4 out of a half pint…

So, for giggles this week, grab some of your favorite goodies. Look at the calories. Then do the math with the servings.

It kinda pissed me off.

Sneaky jerks.
