Now with Fewer Calories!

Great news for all those folks watching their waistlines! Tuna manufacturers have come out with a new kind of tuna that contains 25% fewer calories per serving.

Old tuna -- 80 calories per serving


New tuna -- 60 calories per serving


And, not only that, the new lower cal product costs the same per serving as the old tuna. Isn't that awesome?



Pictured: Nutrition facts from Trader Joe's Solid White Tuna (in water, no salt added), old 6 oz. (170 g) and new 5 oz. (142 g) cans. Shelf price: $1.49 each. (In case you're too lazy to do the math -- The smaller can resulted in a cost increase of 5 cents per ounce.)
