It's not bad enough you have to count the carbs and figure out how much to bolus, but serving size is 1/2 a can and servings per container is 3 ! I think they shorted me 1/2 a can !

So anyone else got some fun nutritional labels ?

I actually do servings for myself like 5, Marie, because I want to make the smallest serving that feels like enough. My technique is to cut whatever it is into quarters then take a little sliver from each quarter to make the 5th serving. It works fine.
