pez info

Did you know that the common package of Pez candies has 9g of sugar according to the nutrition information on the outer packaging. These seems somewhat logical considering that the little candy dispensers practically spit out solid sugar cubes. However, the interesting fact is that when you look on the wrapper from around the actual candies, it says “Net wt. 8.5g” on the label. Now, math has never been my favorite subject, but something just seems a bit off to me there. Maybe I’m just stupid, but from my understanding, the Metric system is pretty tight when measuring the mass of something. Explanation anyone? On second thought, I don’t want to know. If there *is* a logical explanation, that would make this entry much less funny.
