Person Who Created Advent-Calendar Nutrition Label Doesn't Understand How Advent Calendars Work

In the end, we didn't purchase the fully edible advent calendar from Dylan's Candy Bar. Kelly opted instead for this one from the Vermont Christmas Company.


It has chocolate behind each door, along with a line from "A Visit From St. Nicholas" (better known as "Twas the Night Before Christmas").

The kids love it, but I was momentarily shocked by how many calories the chocolates had (200).


Then I realized that they expect you to eat the 24 chocolates in two massive binge sessions.

Binge eating is a big part of Christmas, but I don't think this nutrition label quite gets the point here.
