False Advertising?

As someone who tries to eat a healthy diet and as someone who also has bit of a sweet tooth, I'm always on the lookout for a sweet, low-calorie snack. I was so excited to recently find a line of 100 calorie Little Debbie's snacks!

They have a 100 calorie Nutty Bar, 100 calorie gingerbread cookie, 100 calorie yellow cake, 100 calorie chocolate cake, and a 100 calorie marshmallow treat that all looked yummy.

As yummy as those other items looked, the one item that I thought looked the best was the 100 calorie Triple Fudge Brownie. They looked yummy and sinful and a package quickly found themselves into my basket at the store.

I took the box to school with me on Monday to keep for those afternoons when I needed something sweet to eat. Imagine my surprise when I opened them to find this:

Now if you can't see the ruler in the picture, that brownie is less than 2 inches by 2 inches.

They look like they were made for a teeny tiny doll house person- not for real life people.

Seriously........would you call that a brownie?
