BONEHEAD MATH QUESTION
If there are 21 carbohydrates in four Chocolate Creme Oreo Cookies, but I need to figure only for two cookies, I would divide 21 by 2.

Is that correct? :dunce:

I'm really not stupid. Just befuddled.

i ate a lunchable (over-processed food but handy for a very very busy day) but this one had cookies in it. the nutritional value is not separated by food item.

3. No no no! What are you thinking?!
First you divide by four, then you multiply by two, silly!

:P

9. you're trying to confuse me, aren't you?!
i'm confused enough already. with this math i've just learned that what i consumed -- a SMALLER portion of crackers, cheese, and meat than is in the plain no-cookie version of a lunchable -- contains MORE carbs and calories. maybe the Nabisco site is lying.

:banghead:

13. This diabetic would eat one.
Just one. As a special treat. :hi:

I certainly take your point, though. I kept eating them long after I realized that the creme filling is little more than sugar and shortening. :P
