The latest entries in the WTF serving size competition

So I’ve been trying to be more interested in nutrition labels to get a better idea of what calorie counts and other stuff are in my food. This has now become a game, in which I attempt to find the most egregious and/or crazy entries on the nutritional label.

Today brings us two entries in the WTF serving size competition:

1) Apparently, a serving size of Tic Tacs is one Tic Tac, with the extremely precise value of 1.9 calories per serving. (Sorry the picture’s kinda blurry, was trying to take it fast.)

2) I’d like you to try and eat just one-third of a muffin at once. (The whole muffin is 600 calories. OMG.)

    My latest product idea: Xeno’s Diet Chocolate Brownies. Serving size: 1/2 serving.

    oh, just wait till you look at a can of Progresso soup. :P serving sizes are a little nuts — but then, I guess we’re comparing them to what serving sizes actually used to be (e.g. dinner plates have actually, literally gotten bigger – like 20-30% – over the past couple decades.)

    33 g of fat in one muffin. Holy crap. I’d sure like to see the ingredient list on that!
