Another one -
How many servings of ice cream are in a single pint? This has changed with the new FDA guidelines for serving sizes. A serving of ice cream is now 2/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup. So the answer used to be 4 but is 3 with the new regs.

Right now, there are both new and old labels on the market so the answer depends on whether someone's favorite ice cream has updated their packaging or not.

This change will also affect some of the articles that Sparkpeople has concerning serving size.

Here's another 1 -
How many calories are in a bowl of New England Clam Chowder from Panera?
330 calories
420 calories
1,000 calories
520 calories

Not sure what the right answer is of the choices given - looked up this item on Panera's website (version 1/7/19) and it says 570 calories for a bowl of New England Clam Chowder.

Paint,

Is this one of the trivia questions you click on when you access that item from your SparkPoints page? I tried searching for it in our database but can't find it.

Which burger is lower in fat?
Wendy's Jr. Hamburger
Hardee's Slammer

The Slammer is not on Hardee's current menu on their website. While trying to find the answer for this one, found a posting from 2005 that announced that the Slammer was being discontinued. Any nutrition info out there is not from Hardeees and the burger is not even currently available.

Here's one that is really not worded well for the answer that they say is correct -

True or False: Simply walking for 15 minutes per day (without changing your diet) can prevent weight gain.

The correct answer given is False. But it says "can". "Can" means it is possible, not that it will always be that way. And for some people, that is all they would need to do. Someone gaining 1 lb/year is consuming approx 10 extra calories per day. A 15 minutes walk would be more than enough to overcome that.

Thats great, with the recent research into how more important than we thought Vit.D is, you don't want to give the wrong information.

Thanks

The "how many minutes in the sun do you need for daily Vit.D" answer is given as 15 minutes.

This will be wrong for most of the world, and its seasonal.

Hi, emoticon

I do love Trivia on SP.

Yes, sometimes I find minor errors or misleading questions.

I will try to find some examples in the future.

There is always room for improvement in any game.

Thanks!

I agree, some answers are plain wrong. If there was a place to say where the answers are wrong, or why spark people trivia questions are answered the way they are would be helpful.

There are a number of features on the full site that you can't access through the app. I believe this is one of them. Sorry about that!

Why is there no access to Trivia (or the Bonus Wheel!) on the App?
Or am I just missing something?

JUust when are they going to update some of the answers to the Trivia Quiz.

Some of the answers are just plain wrong or misleading.

A lot don't agree with our department of health so we will always get them wrong.

IE,
A flu shot only works if it is the right one for that flue at the time and does not work most of the time. So flu shots are not the be all and end all of the flu.

It would be nice to know that the right answer is there.
