Two days ago I got a comment on my story about how 100 calorie packs of Swedish Fish are not as good as the full sized ones.
In the story I suggest that people DO NOT buy the smaller Swedish Fish and instead eat about 5 of the regular sized fish as they equal about 100 calories.
The comment was by someone named "Anonymous" and it said:
Your calorie count is way off. According to their website, 100 calories is about 14 fish (19 pieces are 140 calories) - http://www.swedishfish.com/products.html#red
So I said:
Hello Anon! You have issued me a challenge. I hope you understand what you have done.
I am going to go out, buy a bag of the regular sized fish and then I am going to math. I'm gonna math hard.
I'll post the results.
The winner gets a bag of Swedish fish.
So I went out and purchased an 8oz bag of the regular sized fish and here is a photo of the Nutrition Facts:
Serving size is 7 pieces and a serving has 150 calories. Divide 7 into 150 and you get about... crap. let me get a calculator.
21.42 calories per fish
100 divided by 21.42 is 4.6 or about 5.
You owe me a bag of fish Anonymous! You can e-mail the fish to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
