Funny, true, on a serious note to those unaware: this is one of the many tricks manufacturers use in labeling food. Most people who look at nutritional info only glance the label, by making a serving size smaller than the whole on things they know people are likely to eat the whole thing, they can list a smaller caloric number. This is sometimes done with foods that are “healthy” such as “100 calorie snacks” by making portions very small on a food that isn’t necessarily particularly healthy. Below 5 calories a food can be called 0 calories. For instance Parkay “0 calorie” “butter” contains almost 1,000 calories per bottle. The serving size of 5 sprays (which generally isn’t enough to coat a pan to prevent sticking) falls below the 5 calorie limit, but someone assuming 0 calories may use much more than 5 sprays assuming that it is calorie free. “Fat free” is another trap because the fat content of food has little to do with how the body stores excess calories at fat. Buyer beware.
