1. Me thinks the nutrition info from that link is a bit erroneous...

One cookie has 360 calories (!) but no carbohydrates, 1 gram of protein, 5 g of fiber, and 3 g of sugar?

Huh?

What does the actual package label say?

2. The whole pkg is 360 calories, I think....

The Pkg says, one cookie (one serving) is 20 calories, 0g fat, 0g dietary fiber, etc.

I follow the original WW diet so those are what I pay attention to.

Don't be trying to ruin this for me hlthe2b! I search high and low for something other than fresh fruit to satisfy my sweet tooth!

I can have 4 of these for 2 points.

3. Believe me... I was intrigued for myself... But I'm low carbing, so....

when I saw 360 calories, but zero carbs, I was like, what on earth is in these things? LOL

Do me a favor and confirm the carb calories for me, will ya? I have largely contained my sweet tooth the past several months, but it does rear up from time to time...

4. The total carbs for 1 cookie is 5g, two percent daily value, 0 fiber, 3g sugar...

That's what it says on the pkg.
