  1. I’m not entirely sure I see the fail. I mean, yes, twice 90 should be 180, not 190. But, that kind of gross rounding error is actually pretty darn common in those nutritional facts.

  2. The FDA enforces rounding rules for Nutrition Facts. This is because reading 93 calories hurts our little brains, but 90 is nice and digestible.

    50 cal – express to nearest 10 cal increment
