I've Been Tricked!!!

Many of you guys commented about these wonderful dark chocolate covered bananas yesterday after I mentioned them in my "Three Things Thursday" post. I figured with all that attention, I would give them a post all their own.

First off, the big question was where to find them. I purchased a case of them...the case included 8 individual boxes with 8 slices per box (in a slide out tray) at Sam's. I haven't noticed them at any of our other grocery stores. The cost was almost $8.00 including tax and that made each individual box a dollar.

Now for the tricked part. We all know that reading labels is very important...but I think I was so excited about these little yummies that I didn't read as well as I should have. On the case, it says 100 calories per serving...on the individual  boxes, it says 100 calories per serving. Well guess what!?! a serving in only 4 banana slices...not the 8 slices that come on the tray! I just hate when that happens!!! Luckily, I have been splitting the tray with I have only been eating a single serving, but I still find it very frustrating!

Will I still buy these? Yes! Honestly the dark chocolate is soo rich that 4 slices satisfies my sweet tooth.

I just wanted to be sure to let you guys know that a full tray is 200 calories...not 100! :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!


  1. Ummm... Those look amazing! I need to find me some of those!

  2. I hate when they do that on packages...the should be required to either put more then one serving under where they put 100 calories a serving...or only package single servings.
