A new nutritonal unit?
I propose we get rid of all those grams and numbers and make a simplified unit for the Nutrition Facts labels: the Snicker.
We all know the Snickers Bar. It has a lot of sugar, fat and calories. But would you eat 11 of them? Well, if you pull up a chair at Romano’s Macaroni grill, you might. If you eat the spaghetti and meatballs, you will end up with almost 7 snickers of calories, 11 snickers of saturated fat and 3 snickers of carbohydrates. At Jamba Juice you could order a Chunky Strawberry—it has 2 snickers of both calories and sugar. Or you could go to Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Crème, with 2 snickers of sugar, fat and calories.
The snicker could put a whole new perspective on how we look at food…
