RANT: Serving Sizes = Palm of your hand


It’s just RUDE for an ice cream carton to report the calories in a serving size of 1/2 cup! Has anyone in the history of ice cream EVER eaten just 1/2 cup?  Sure there are the food-abstainers and platinum-will-powered folk who would never DREAM of ingesting ice cream. But for those of who so enjoy this chilly, creamy, delicious treat, HAVE ANY OF YOU EVER JUST EATEN 1/2 CUP!??!

“Oh, no, no, I just couldn’t…I’m so full from that stick of sugar-fee gum I had earlier ”

What’s ruder still, is that 1/2 cup serving of ice cream can have as much as 250 calories

(yeah, yeah, you can get it down to about 90 calories per serving, but that’s the fake, chemical-laden, tasteless type. No thanks)

So, I guess it’s high time we (and all of you in line at Cold Stone Creamery, Ben and Jerry’s, and fro-Yo shops alike) reviewed serving sizes, depressing as it may be, click here for enlargement of image below:
