A Facebook Friend from Hayden posts: “I really wish food manufacturers wouldn't use deceptive packaging! I picked up 2 of the same brand's brownie mixes off the store shelf today, one regular and one marked as low fat. For the exact same serving size, the low fat version had more calories and more fat. Pays to read the label!”
Question: Do you read the labels on grocery cans and boxes before you buy them?
