Could be the piecrust, could be the pumpkin....I noticed a little difference in nutrition on the canned pumpkin once in a while. Very little, but still different. Same with these pies, it's really only about 10 calorie difference so who knows.
My other theory is.......splenda in one could of been counted as nothing and in the other it was counted? Cause believe it or not Splenda does have calories, and carbs, not much, but it does have them. I believe something like 48 calories a 1/2 cup.....and like 6 carbs or something......dramatically less then sugar, or even a whole lot less then Splenda blend...but still it does have some, so I don't know if sometimes she counted it and sometimes not or not. As, legally and according to the ADA the calories and carbs are so few in Splenda it is usually not counted.
