    My ridiculous serving size complaint is with Kellogg's Sugar Frosted Flakes. This product is offered in a wide variety of packages, each of which nutrition label has a different serving size.

    What about the weight of each serving size? Does Frosted Flakes come it different flavors, that might be a reason.

    EDIT: I went to the website, it has the same serving size for the different sizes.
    Serving Size 3/4 Cup (29 g)

    Some frozen pizzas give a serving size as 1/5 of a pizza. Cutting a pizza into 5 pieces is awkward. I doubt anyone is really cutting their pizza that way.

    Serving size of one pizza = one pizza! :D

    They could list it that way and it would make sense. The point is no one is cutting the round pizza into 5 slices .

    My dad used to cut pizza in to 5 slices. Although there were 5 of us in the household at the time, so I guess that made sense.

    And we had more than one slice. Obviously. Because who eats 1/5th.

    That sort of stuff is never accurate in terms of portion sizes. I could easily eat a whole pack of that sort of thing to myself!

    I look at the weight of the pack and then the info per 100g to assess how many roughly will be in a serving.

    Like crisps..."sharing pack" and it's not one of those massive ones, it's just a larger pack, 50-60g. Who's going to share that? We all know most people will just have it to themselves.
    30g of cereal as well? It takes 100g just to have a half decent bowl a lot of the time.
    1/4 pizza?

    This is true of soda as well, that 16oz bottle of soda is TWO servings. You have to watch carefully

    I'm the exception and love when things are split into thirds because I cook for myself, my S.O. and brother-in-law, so 1/3 is perfect LOL

    Ramen... 1/2 block :)

    I found a recipe for a fabulous Asian ramen soup and to get the carbs and calories where I wanted it had to split the ramen in half. So yes, I am that person who only eats half a ramen at a time ;)

    Me too! I'll do the whole block if I'm making it for lunch with some shrimp, but if I'm doing it with chicken thighs and a stir fry, it's perfectly adequate for just half a block.

    Non-fat Greek yogurt, national brand & store brand, same ingredients.

    There must be some difference, if I took equal amounts the calories would be different.

    Corn chips, large packet, only half full but apparently has 6.5 servings per packet? It looked to be around 5-7 chips is one serving.
