A spin-off from an original post about how a food surprised you because it had more calories per serving than you thought...but this time what is something that surprised you that didn’t have as many calories as you thought?

    I don't even buy them anymore, or peanut butter, the servings are so pitifully underwhelming

    Cotton candy, even though it's just air & pure sugar and bad for you, I still figured it would have a lot more calories.

    Don't worry, the FDA is allowed to be off on nutritional and caloric value by up to 20%......So whatever you think it is, is probably wrong anyway ;)

    What is something that had FEWER cals than I thought/hoped? Nothing.

    Though I guess I was reasonably happy when I realized that a whole frozen pizza (newman's own thin crust) was only 950ish cals. Wait, I can eat a whole pizza (kinda) and still have calories left?

    Those pouches of seasoned tuna fish. Feels kind of substantial for 80-100 calories (depending on flavor). They do make me feel a bit like I am eating cat food though.
