OK, so I know wine coolers are not on the food pyramid. But anything out there that has a calorie content, has Nutrition Facts. This is how I know what I can have and what I really can't have to what I will lie and try to stretch out to say that i can have. ha ha (I am kidding here. ha ha) Anyways, I have been very very stressed and decided that I wanted a wine cooler to help me go to sleep. Since when I am stressed, my insomnia is much worse. However, and please do not poke fun, I can not drink much. I am a person that drinks and tosses my cookies. Sound yummy? Well, don't get too excited, it isn't really cookies because I am not allowed to have them. :) OK...the point of my question....what happened to the Nutrition Facts on Wine Coolers? Doesn't beer show how many carbs they have? I even went to their website and they do not give any calorie or nutrition facts! Here is the website if you want to see all the new great flavors they have. http://www.bartlesandjaymes.com/flavors.htm Well, they are new to me because you have no clue how many years it has been since I have even had a wine cooler. I did mention that I don't drink...right? ha ha

That is just too odd, I don't drink any more, well because I loved it too much when I did. But I never noticed that these do not have nutritional facts on them. I thought the FDA made it mandatory all consumable products had to carry this information. Maybe I am wrong, but if so, one would think they would put it on there. The fact they don't, is a bit scary.

But where does that information come from? If they Bartles and Jaymes company does not list it on the bottle, box, or website...where does that information come from? Some say it is 20 something carbs...while others say 40 something carbs? Which is right? How do we know it is right? And since I have to watch my carb intake for medical reasons...how am I supposed to know? I thought that this was regulated also.
