A Little Known FACT: Burger King's Bacon King is superior to the Baconator.


Oh yea, gonna eat my snack of 12 pringles potato chips, yea that will really hit the spot!

Hmm, I need something sweet, gonna grab 3 cookies, yummy...

That catch is you gotta eat 12 pringles in one mouthful, then you can keep having the recommended serving size over and over.

Glutton. A waste. Senseless. A failure of a criticism and a failure of a thread. Twelve pringles is and should be enough to satisfy any man or beast.

I'm pretty sure that serving sizes are some sort of scam to make foods look like they have less calories than they do

Like why the gently caress is my packet of instant ramen 2 servings. Who the hell breaks the noodles in half and then carefully saves the opened flavor packet later? But hey if you only casually inspect the nutrition info it looks like the whole package is 230 calories.

Obviously you're supposed to split the ramen noodles with your date.

Breakfast cereal it's especially guilty of this because it's pure sugar. Why yes, a half cup of this in a teaspoon of milk will make a good breakfast.

I guess that's why a complete breakfast has two beverages and 5 sides.

Cereal is going to be seen as the cigarettes of the obesity crisis. Cheap, accessible, unhealthy, and marketed to children as being good for them.

Maruchan ramen noodles (the ones that come in individually packed bricks) contain two servings per brick, for some reason.

Nothing in Jurassic World is natural, we have always filled gaps in the genome with the DNA of other animals. And if the genetic code was pure, many of them would look quite different. But you didn't ask for reality, you asked for more teeth.

I think the most widespread offender is the 20oz soda bottle. So many people think grabbing a 20oz Coke as having "a soda", when it's 2 and a half. I agree the labels should look like this.

I wish they would outlaw that kind of deceptive packaging. *giant banner* Only 150 calories! *microscopic letters* per serving

Just say what's in the package and let people decide their own drat serving. I'm not saying it's what's making everybody dangerously obese, you can probably blame that on taking solace in a chip bag and not looking at the label very closely in the first place, but it's definitely not helping.

That said I have been noticing some candy bars and cokes and things going a little better about that.

I was drinking a four loko and it said it had 4 and 3/4 servings per container

Yes, let me pour out precisely 5 ounces of this fine malted alcoholic beverage, carefully reseal it, and then put it back in the fridge for a later day

oh, so it's called four loko because you're meant to split one can between four people and, I don't know, a pony

I thought it was time you had a new av so typed in random picture and this is what came up


A 500ml can of beer is 1.5 servings.

Also idk why they don't put nutritional information on alcohol. Well I kinda do but it's obviously motivated by sales.
