I am making cookies for my daughter to take to a party. I bought Skor candy bars to add to the dough.
I noticed that the calories are listed right on the front. The M&M bags had calories listed on the front too. Then I noticed that some of the "king size" bars didn't list calories but had some sort of language like "king size to share". Clever marketing there.
Skor bars are a favorite of mine. I had intended to buy an extra one for me to eat. Seeing the 200 calories stopped me. I will try to be happy with a couple of pieces instead of eating 200 calories. Just don't have them to spend right now because of my broken ankle.
I am wondering what the crowd here thinks about requiring calories to be listed on the front like this - separate from the nutrition label. Would it help people to be aware of calories? Or should we just all be responsible for ourselves and make the effort to read the nutrition label?
