I just found out that Ole Mexican Foods Chili and Lime chiccarones (look like pork rinds, but "fluffier"Wink have 18 carbs per serving vs. the .8 they showed on previous bags I purchased. When I noticed that the new bag showed 18 vs. .8, I contacted them, and just got back an answer that they were in the process of updating all of their labels, and they would send me some coupons. Really? Coupons probably won't be used, since now I'm wondering if their other so called "low carb" items are really low carb (X-Treme fiber tortillas, etc.)
I guess buyer beware, and truthfully if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Maybe it's just way smarter to not purchase anything that is processed. Can't fake nature's labels, right?

Too true. This is more or less the lesson I walked away with after my four year stint as a live-in nanny for two boys with celiac, dariy and soy allergies. You'd be amazed at what hides in packaging under different aliases and "creative" ways of determining percentages. It really is just smarter (and in some cases, safer!) to get your calories from as much whole and unprocessed food as possible.
