well, i didn't make this up...its literally a proven fact... if you compare the calories in a "topped" flavor with a regular flavor you'll see that they are essentially the same, despite the fact the "topped" flavor is smaller than a pint. this is done so that ben and jerry's can remain within a certain caloric limit
For example Americone Dream, which is 16 oz, contains 1150 calories "Topped chocolate milk and cookies", which is 15.2 oz, contains 1250 calories How else would you explain that
the same is true for peanut M&Ms vs regular M&Ms. A pack of peanut M&Ms weighs slightly less than a pack of regular M&Ms, because peanut M&Ms are bigger than regular M&Ms, so if there were to be an equal amount of peanut M&Ms in a pack, it would push the calorie limit past what the company has set.
Here is a direct quote by the manufacturer of M&Ms:
"Mars Chocolate North America is committed to health and nutrition, which includes efforts to manage portions and calories, so all of our products are 250 calories or less per portion. This means that weights may vary from pack to pack, and are always clearly labeled on the product package."
Look it up yourself
