    Manwich’s Fuzzy Math

    IMG00014-20091028-1927Many thanks to eagle-eyed Small Bites reader Nilsa Duran who sent me the accompanying screen capture of the latest Manwich commercials.

    In case you can’t read clearly, the image contains the following statement:

    Each 1/4 cup serving of Manwich contains a 1/2 [sic] cup of vegetables.

    Huh?  How, exactly, does a quarter-cup serving of Manwich deliver a half cup of vegetables, you wonder?

    I was perplexed at first, too.

    However, a look at the Manwich ingredient list revealed what I believe to be the answer.

    Apart from the tomato puree — which makes up the large majority of this half-cup serving of vegetables — all other vegetables (mainly peppers and onions) are dehydrated.

    My guess is that the half-cup measurement refers to pre-dehydrated vegetables.

    While that’s fine and dandy, let’s not forget that each quarter-cup serving also offers 380 milligrams of sodium — slightly more than a large order of McDonald’s fries.

    Additionally, Manwich contains more added sugar (in the form of corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup) than peppers or onions.
