I really have been trying to be more aware of serving size/ingredients listed on food packaging but this stay home lock down is interfering with my mental stability. The grocery store InStacart service where you order online and pickup the order in the parking lot is great but they’re out of so many things they ask you if it’s ok for them to substitute. I ordered chocolate chip cookies and instead got a bag of Fig Newtons. When you have your lips set for chocolate chip cookies and you get fig newtons it’s like a bad blind date showed up. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a fig newton but the ingredients looked pretty healthy. When I opened them they looked about the size of a postage stamp. I checked the serving size and laughed when I saw 2. Are you kidding me? A serving size should be a whole sleeve. So I thought I could combine my Barbie doll size 2 cookies with a little ice cream. I must confess I never looked at the serving size on any ice cream carton so I was shocked to see it was 1/2 cup. Nooo this is wrong and cruel. What’s a half a cup of ice cream….2 bites? I think a serving should be when the spoon hits the bottom of the carton. I don’t know if I can take much more of this lock down. It’s making me mentally disabled too. ❤️Ro
