    What is wrong with this??

    I was on the Baskin-Robbins website and decided to check out the nutritional info about their chocolate almond ice cream (the kids are napping and I was bored!). See if you can figure out what is bizarre with what I found:

    Well there are at least 392 calories that I can account for and I'm sure I'm missing some.
    fat = 243
    protein = 28
    sugar = 121

    Skip the Chocolate Almond Ice Cream and get your kids hooked on organic almonds instead:
    Almonds are known as the "king of nuts" and are the most highly cultivated nut in the world. They are delicious both raw and roasted and have a nice crunchy texture. Soaking raw almonds in water for about half an hour increases their nutritional value and makes them more easily digestible. Almonds are great for making nut butter or as an alternative to dairy as almond milk. They are a great source of protein, Vitamin E, calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, and magnesium.

    Edit: never mind, I was reading the info incorrectly.

    Many food companies post this when a product contains nuts, as people with an allergy to nuts usually have an allergy to shellfish also

    It's obviously made in a plant that contains nuts and shellfish, by law they have to list it, but it does sound kinda funny. Sometimes the laws are really absurd! But I'm sure someone out there is thankful....that is if they read the nutrional labels.
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    Don't forget that they do not have to mention insect and bug parts that just might happen to get into the mix ~ I think they may up the protein content though if enough bug parts fall in.
