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.

    Snerk!!!….I saw a commercial the other night for Ragu spaghetti sauce…showing a little boy feeding his broccoli to the dog and then showing him happily eating a plate of pasta and sauce (no greens anywhere on the plate) with the glowing proclamation that little Johnny NOW has all his veggies!!!

    I have to admit — I miss out on a lot of advertisements because I usually watch recorded shows on my DVR! Seems like I am missing some golden blogging opportunities, though.

    I like how advertisers think vegetables = plain steamed broccoli OR tomato sauce on pizza.

    Thanks for sharing this!
