Wedding Prep & Fig Newtons

Wedding week is finally here, and things are trucking right along. Yesterday, we went to Wal-Mart (the first of many trips, I'm sure), and we loaded up on snacks and supplies to go in the dressing rooms for the wedding party. We bought some cheese & crackers, cookies, 100 calorie packs, and Fig Newtons. You know, these:
Have you ever looked at the nutrition facts on Fig Newtons? Overall, they're not too terrible for you. Only 110 calories & 2.5 grams of fat. Kind of high on the carbs at 22 grams, but a food can't be perfect.

Then I looked at the serving size. The serving size is two fig newtons. Two. Fig. Newtons. TWO fig newtons! Come on, Nabisco! Have you seen a fig newton? They're teeny! They look like...well, they look like this:

Nabisco should amend the Fig Newton nutrition facts to reflect what an average consumer usually eats in one sitting.

Serving size: 1/2 sleeve.


  1. Maybe you can sue when you get your law license (is it called a license?)

  2. Yeah, that would be nice. For all products, not just fig newtons. Maybe it would scare us out of starting the consumption of a whole can of frosting (current serving size: 2 tbsp! HAHAHAHA!)

    Can't wait to eat all of the food in the dressing room! I had better already be in my dress to make sure that it fits throughout the snacking.

  3. Wedding rocked, friends rocked, weekend rocked. Thanks again for the invite, the lodging, the food, the friends and the fun. Hope you are having a blast in AZ!

  4. You made it! Great wedding -- thanks for having us.

    I added your blog to the list I follow -- check mine out some time: www.heartmindbodyandsoulbytodd.blogspot.com

    Hope you're both enjoying your honeymoon!
