Wordless Wednesday: Trail Mix on Steroids?
On my first leg of my trip to the Blissdom Canada conference I stopped at a local gas station to fuel up and grab a few things. I had an eight hour drive ahead of me and I needed some snacks for the road. I quickly grabbed a bag of the Fancy Chocolate Mix because it was similar to the trail mix my family enjoys at home.
A few hours of driving passed and I was starting to get a wee bit hungry. I reached over for the trail mix. Like I usually do these days I checked the nutrition information first.
I was shocked when I looked at the amount of calories in the mix. 1113! How was that possible? Is this trail mix on steroids? Is there something special about this mix of assorted nuts, raisins and chocolate buttons (as they are referred to on the package).
I did not dare to eat them. I was too afraid. If I was counting calories again only 1/4 cup of this mix would be almost my whole day’s worth of calories! That is insane! (And odd since the similar trail mix we have at home is only about 250 calories per 1/3 cup serving.)
Funny enough, my roommates at Blissdom and I found out that this was a big fat typo!
When you search for the mix online it says that for 1/4 cup serving the mix is actually only 113 calories.
Phew! So, we cracked open the bag and finally enjoyed the trail mix.
