The amount of portions in a box of cereals, as claimed by the manufacturer: 12
The amount of portions I eat before the box is empty: 3
@fribbledom I cannot eat just one bowl of cornflakes. I always go back to refill - unless the box is now empty, in which case I start crying.
@fribbledom Sounds like salsa to me. Salsa mfr: Servings per container--16. Me: Servings per container--4
@fribbledom Especially if they’re Kellogg’s Rice Crispies. Who ever understood an average serving of 30g? It’s big bowl or really big bowl.
I think the portion sizes are chosen such that the nutritional values don't look too horrible.
"Sure, cereal is mostly sugar, but if you follow our recommended porion size, it's not that much anymore!"
@fribbledom Math checks out. The strange part is that the size of the cereal box doesn’t seem to matter. The only exception being those “travel” boxes that leave you hungry after consuming five of them.
They measure portions by this amount of sugar. Any more, and you can't have three meals per day any longer 😂
@fribbledom I saw some drink advertising that it was only x amount of calories. (small print: per 100ml, in a FUCKING 250 ML CAN)
oh yes, let me just split up this tiny can into two and a half portions
@fribbledom They need to lie about the portion size, because if they said the portions are bigger, they would be accused of poisoning people.
Smaller portions = smaller dosage.
@fribbledom Yup. And they keep making the boxes smaller so they can charge more without the price of cereal looking as ridiculous as it really is.
