    I like it because as i've AGED the print on the back can be quite tiny and i'm all squinty trying to figure out what the funk it says and also if i am wanting a snacky thing and i can scan the items, the ones with front print will get my vote quicker. Well done marketing guys.....

    Ha! I hear you on this. I caved and bought reading glasses when I realized no matter how much weight I lose, my arms won't grow longer!

    Rarely am anywhere that has vending machines but I think the calorie on the front is awesome.

    I think it would be great to have the calories highlighted by being on the front of packages- particularly of snack foods.

    I have a package of hamburger buns in my kitchen that has the calories on the front. I didn't actually notice it when I bought it and when I was thinking of eating one I again didn't notice and just looked at the nutrition label on the back for calorie information. So I guess it wasn't that helpful to put the calories on the front for me.

    I always look at the back of the packaging anyway as I want to know the other nutrients and the ingredients too.
