The things Google finds... on Sparkpeople?

Can someone explain this? I couldn't find Yogurtland Vanilla No-Sugar added in the Nutrition tracker, so I went to Google it up. I saw a Sparkpeople link, and this almost seems as bad some of the things that are randomly generated to try to get ad revenue. Is this for fro-yo, for french fries, or just for the ad revenue?

Oh well, back to looking. In the store it was labeled 4 g per oz, but the two flavors that people have entered the data for on Sparkpeople are higher than that.

    Woubbie, this was after not finding it in the Nutrition database. Two other flavors were listed. This wasn't the first time I'd found an entry like this either (from Google) but it finally clicked for me that Sparkpeople might just be trying to attract people to the site.

I've looked at other nutrition trackers, but basically I've got so much invested in SparkPeople that it works better for me than anything else would. The Self Nutrition Database (nutritiondata.self.com) is where I go for the most detailed information on "real food" nutrition. Sometimes I need to know just how many olives ads up to 1 g of carb!

    Weird. No idea where in the SP database the glitch would be. The data is definitely for a single french fry, don't know why it was labeled otherwise.

I always go by the package label over anything I find in SparkPeople. A lot of those entries are entered by Sparkers and have errors, omissions, and discrepancies. If you don't find in the tracker already add it yourself.

    Crazy! I looked at the link and find it rather shocking.
