Now that's what I call a Spin Job

We've been doing a lot of canning this summer. If you make jellies and apple butter and whatnot, you need a lot of sugar. So, we've been buying the 10 pound bags of sugar, pictured here:

Looks innocuous enough, does it not?

We were in the midst of canning some stuff, and my wife says, "Will you look at this?" I looked at the bag, and sure enough, the fine print right above red section with the Net Weight reads, "15 calories per serving."

"Well, that's not too bad...wait...IT'S PURE SUGAR!"

Upon further review, the nutrition label on the side looked like this:

Servings per container: 1134!

1134 x 15 =17010 calories per bag!

Now that's what I call spin!
