Apparently the Same Two Granola Bars Have Different Caloric Content

Yum.  Come to momma, my new dark chocolate lover.

But first I must do a background check, my darling.  Wouldn't want to catch something get fatter.

Oh, I see you're 190 calories for 2 bars.

What's this?  90 calories in one bar? Are you trying to trick me into undressing you and putting my lips on you, you sneaky devil? 

But wouldn't that mean your other bar has 100 calories?

How do I know which one of you to eat if I only want one?  Obvs I want the leaner fellow 90 calorie one.

Hmmm...does your wrapper contain those 10 calories?  Do you think I'm going to eat that?

What kind of slut glutton do you take me for?!

We're so over.

The other 10 calories is in case you get a staple in it. Not to be macabre, but in our peanut butter flavored ones....Hubs was chewing away and there was a big staple in it.

I wonder if anyone else noticed that there's 1 g of saturated fat in 1 bar but 1.5 g in 2 bars?? As my hubby pointed out, that label is a classic example of government math LOL

I don't get it either but I do know that those bars are fabulous. So fabulous I refused to share mine with the gansta ducks that try to hit me up on my earling morning runs.

I was going to suggest it must be the wrapper. I love those bars too.

Oh wow...I have not seen the chocolate ones...the others are a weakness as it is...and now chocolate!?!?!
Nutrition Labels. Sometimes I think they are true fictional reading. Stuff like that drives me to distraction!! Great post!!

Dude, I think they're just making crap up as they go. Whatever. It looks delish, so I don't really care if those extra, phantom calories come from alien poop. Now my pregnant brain needs these granola bars with ghost calories....

I think the nutrition labels were made up by nutritionists who didn't need to pass math...or English majors who became marketers who couldn't pass math.
