I'm not encouraged at all by that label! I don't care how many repetitions of "organic" they print. It's still primarily sugar, not even real vanilla, some sort of unnamed "natural flavor," and then soy, of all things.

And then you can only eat 1/4 of the packet for all that...
Nope. You can have it.

That is just the calories and nutrition info for the mix.

if you are in the us products are required to be labeled for their as is state. so if the package you bought has only one set of nutritional information, then it is for whatever came in the package. so if milk was not included in the package, milk isn't included in the nutrition info and you have to add it separately.

-google first. ask questions later.

I would say no. Usually they'll have two sets of numbers - one for the mix only and the other prepared. The nutritional label for this product is a little vague, to say the least. I'd err on the side of caution and add the milk calories to those numbers.

Good health is not determined by the number on the scale.

I bought this as a treat:

-pudding-mix

You have to cook all 4 servings at once because the powder is in one bag. If it were 100calories in one serving I could life with eating 400calories. But does that already include the milk you need to cook it?
