Can you believe this??

Went to the store today and picked up some of these:

On the package it says you get approximately 23 pieces or 37 grams for 130 calories, no fat and 3g of fibre. Yeah that's 2 points!!

However before i counted out 23 i stopped and thought no i'm going to weigh them :) And this is how many i got for 37 grams. A total rip off!!

  1. I swear they look like hunks of meat lol. Sorry you didn't get as many as you were suppose to. It almost looks like they screwed up on the package with a whole 10 to short.

  2. That doesn't look like much at all. Were they good though?

  4. I thought "why is she posting a pic of beef jerky bites after talking about fruit?" LOL That is definitely a rip off! 10 short...geez. That makes me wonder how off a lot of "nutritional content/info" is....

  5. They do look like little sausages! Mega-processed food sure is funny looking! But supposedly that's a huge problem, serving sizes being misrepresented, though it seems particularly egregious in this case.

  6. Oh wow, what a rip!
    Smart of you to weigh them though. I would have just taken the "approx pieces" word for it.

    I'd be tempted to write to them.

  7. That's why I always weigh stuff out! It's never the same as the package says!

  10. I get so mad when companies do this-I ate this frozen cheesecake from walmart (about the size of a yogurt) and it said 60 calories(that's the only reason why I bought it)as I was eating it, thinking wow this is good it says there was 6 serving in one containter = 360 calories for one darn yogurt sized -rotton people

  11. You should totally write to the company and complain. You may be able to get your money back. I had the same problem with serving size from a product I got at Trader Joes. I brought the wrapper back into them and they gave me a refund no problem!

  12. Can you email them and call them on it? That's a big difference!
