Reduced fat?


So I was at the the grocery store picking up some necessities and was going to pick up some Oreo's.  I picked up the reduced fat as an good weight watcher should.  Then I noticed that the full fat variety was on sale.  Well this Weight Watcher also happens to be broke so I took a look at the labels.  Are you kidding me!  Only 10 calories difference?  Granted the 2.5 grams of fat is pretty substantial but to me I felt like those 10 calories should have been more like 70.  True the calories are reduced, but I feel like if your going to offer a product that you are claiming to be healthier than your original version, it should be considerably healthier.

Just my 2 cents.

Take into consideration that the packages cost the same, usually, but there are fewer cookies in the Reduced Fat package.

I have even found more calories in a reduced fat or low carb version of a product. Never assume, I guess!

AMEN. for me and the oreos (my downfall) I saw that and went with the full fat.

Always pays to read the labels, eh? Grocery shopping takes longer, but it's well worth it.
