I live/work/shop between 5500 and 6800ft elevation. Two times now I've noticed these discrepancies and I'm getting curious....
1) When I read the nutrition info for the new Haagen Dazs Light varieties on their website, I was happy to see that the amount of sugar did not go up. However, when purchasing the stuff at the store, the sugar count was indeed higher. Huh?
2) Today I bought a pint of Breyers All Natural Chocolate, and the label says 190 calories per serving, while the website lists 140. That's a big difference! But on the website is this curious statement:
"Nutrition Facts may vary in high altitude areas."
So.... what's the big deal? I imagine something having to do with specific chemistry of sugar/freezing point, etc etc. But does someone have a more handy explanation? Thanks!
