On the nutrition tracker you can add in a food not listed. Hit add food. There is a smaller button off to the right side of that window that pops up that says add a food not listed. Click that. Enter in the fudges nutrition info then save it. Since you ate less than a serving in the serving area when you enter in food, instead of putting in that you ate a whole serving, you ate half of one. So punch in 0.5 there instead. If the fudge you ate is already in the list of foods spark has then you won't need to add it in yourself. But you would still put in 0.5 in the amount of serving area. I hope you get it figured out. I hope I didn't confuse you more. LOL.

2 tablespoons = 6 teaspoons (1 tbsp = 3 tsp, so 2 tbsp = 6 tsp)

You had 1 teaspoon, so 1/6th of a serving, or .17 servings (divide 1 by 6). If you enter .17 in your servings on your nutrition tracker, that will calculate out your calories (130 / 6 = 21.67) for 1 teaspoon of your fudge.

I had 1 teaspoon of fudge on my ice cream today. The serving size is 2 tablespoons (130 calories) many calories is 1 teaspoon? Sorry I'm horrible at math and I just can't figure out how to figure it out LOL
