Maybe You Can
After spending the afternoon cleaning, I pulled out a bag and, while I played with the cats, noshed on rice snacks. Out of curiosity, I read the nutrition label. A serving size is 3 cakes, three. See them? Just 3.
Now, we could argue about American eating habits. Our gluttonous selves have expanded our waistlines leading to all sorts of health problems. But come on, 3 cakes? These are about 2 inches in diameter. I don't know about you, but I can't eat merely 3 cakes in a sitting. I ate half the bag and saved the other half for the raid tonight. You're supposed to get 10 servings out of this bag. Yeah right.
Somewhere, there is a little man in a white trench coat charged with deciding what a serving size is of the food in front of him. He utters a maniacal laugh and says, "Let's really aggravate them. Let's make the serving size 2 pieces."
