    Good ol' Calorie Counting and a little bit of happiness :)
    Hello all :wavey:

    I'm a huge fan of mushrooms, and usually by the typical 250g cartoons of them at the supermarkets. The nutritional value on the label say that they're 13 calories per 100g, so one would think that if I ate the whole 25og carton (without adding anything else such as butter), I'd be eating 32.5 calories. It just seems so little calories for so much. Can anyone shed any light on this?

    It just seems too good to be true!
