2 Garlic Cloves -894 calories

Does anyone get absolutely crazy entries like this when MFP matches ingredients in your recipe? I realize MFP is a user created database so anyone can put anything they want in the database but I don't understand why anyone would create an entry like this. I know the solution is to replace it and move on, but am I missing something about why these would be useful to a person?

    You found the infamous garlic! Congratulations!!!

    I suspect it was an entry typo that never got fixed.

    Maybe it's an entry of interest for a vampire?

    2 garlic cloves = 894 points of damage.

    So if the Vampire's TDEE is around 2400, he'd be dead with 6 cloves.

    Love my fellow gamers. :love:

    If it's the entry with lots of serving unit options (100 g, 1 clove, 3 cloves, some kind of volume measure like 1 Tbsp diced), the secret is to use the 3 close serving size (so 2 cloves would be .67 of a serving. Don't use the 1 clove serving size.

    How did I end up being called a nerd today? :tongue:

    OP, there's a thread around somewhere with instructions for reporting incorrect entries. I can't search for it now, but it's a new feature. Something's sticking in my head about it only being available for iPhone right now though. I could be wrong.
