Talk about portion distortion.... 8 oz is a half a pound!

I have to wonder if there a reason they can't make a more sensible 3 ounce version?

Hi, here is the data for the bar, it is only 8 ounces

Nutrition Facts Ice Cream Bar (Costco Food Court)
Serving Size 8 ounce
Calories 870- Unfortunately, this is the most consistent data on the bar, 870. But it is Awfully delicious. I think on a day that you really worked out, it is feasible.

I have a hard time believing and ice cream bar is 870 calories. I'm with the other poster...how big is this thing exactly?

I thought it was only 300-400 or so. When I got home, I researched it thoroughly. Someone actually has it entered at 110 calories in our food tracker. It is in fact 870 and super delicious. Would be okay but I knew how I was on my food tracker and I thought I would make goal. I had no idea it was so high. Its a yummy vanilla bar dipped in chocolate coated with almonds. Its to die for! I guess I would do it again, but only on a day where I knew I would still make goal or at least burn it off. I might have overreacted (imagine that?).

For the most part I always check the calories before I eat something. If there is no calorie count available upfront, I don't eat it.
