I would be far more concerned with the 4% daily value of fiber.

Obviously a misprint on the nutrition label. 6th item on the ingredients list is tricalcium phosphate--which is clearly there as a vitamin supplement.

It has 3 recipies all telling you to use milk and as we know some kids would rather drink their own urine than a glass of milk i think this is a fair way to get calcium in them

its probably not a photoshop because i have seen real label do that, so if it actually has 10% in it, its just a miss print, which is probably only thousands of bottles

Thetas, putting <1g is different from putting 1%, and actually if you look at the label a couple of vitamins say 0% as well i like how no one else is bringing those up, hersheys can say they but calcium in something if its only fractions or any other vitamins

>>The calcium & vitamins are in the milk you mix the syrup with. o_o It`s not rocket science.<<

Um...you`re missing the point. The bottle says it has calcium added, yet the nutritional facts say there isn`t any. That`s what they`re trying to say. :/

Lauryn: "does anyone actually care??"

Well yes, I`d like my chocolate syrup to actually have real ingredients in it. I feel angry when a huge company like Hershey`s that makes millions of dollars off of candy and chocolate, chooses to use artificial ingredients instead of natural ones, when there`s been findings of nasty effects from HFCS and such. And it`s very difficult to find natural food in popular supermarkets that are found everywhere. You have to go to the rarer and less popular natural markets that are few and far apart to get something that has 5 ingredients or less inside it

Well... Seeing as ur the only person on earth WHO CARES!!! Make it yourself and provide it to those of us who dont!! hows that??

"Forget Hersheys, when is someone going to sue McDonalds for using stand-in models for their photo shoots which look nothing like the real thing you get when you buy one? "

Oh that crap, my dad was in the whole advertising racket years ago, and they use some pretty sneaky sh*t when it comes to photo shoots.

Whipped cream is usually shaving cream.
Condensation is a type of glycerin.

But those are usually because of the lighting getting so hot and either evaporating or melting the subject after hours of trying to get the right shot.

I am aware how recommended daily value works. However, it still says < 1g, meaning something like 0.5g or 0.2g, and it doesn`t say < 1%, it just says 0%.

And then, assuming of course that it was 0.45% and they decided to just put 0%, there`s still the fact of the matter that normal chocolate syrup bottles say calcium 0% on them anyways, which according to you, could be interpreted as anything between 0% and a hair off 1%, so they may or may not have added 0.1% your daily recommended value of calcium.

This also means of course you`d have to have ridiculous amounts of this chocolate syrup to benefit at all from the +calcium thing they`re using to sell the product, which is pointless considering most things you would normally put chocolate syrup on are loaded with calcium.

Thetas, your point is correct if 100 grams are required daily. However, for some people that weigh under about 175 pounds, the recommended amount is only 55-75 grams. This would mean that 1 gram of protein = 1.8%-1.3%. They post the protein amount as grams instead of a percentage because the amount actually needed widely varies with body weight.

if you go to hershey`s webpage, it clearly states that the syrup + calcium has 10% calcium in it. either this is a missprint, or a photoshop.

a lot of products have labels like that, actually it has calcium just under 1% so they dont put .5% they just use 0% instead

Ah, wrong, it also says, "Protein < 1g, indicating it has protein just under 1%, so clearly, there is no calcium.

they really should have a red circle at the top as well, where it says "+ CALCIUM"

it does contain Tricalcium Phosphate, as you caqn see on the label... it`s an anti-caking agent which is probably used to aid mixing of the dry ingredients so that they are less likely to form lumps. It says "0%" because they have to round to the nearest percentage, which is in this case, 0. The same reason that food items can say they contain no trans fat if they contain less than 0.1g per serving. They`re playing up something very minimal to attract new attention, but heck, that`s advertising for ya.

I was replying to the statement that this product was liquid fat. Not to a statement that it was fattening. So your reply is true but irrelevant.

why add the plus calcium for the milk? we already know milk has calcium, and we already know hershey`s syrup is used for chocolate milk/hot chocolate, if anything it should say `just add milk!`

The irony of your semiliterate demand alleviates my boredom slightly, so you`re in keeping with the purpose of this site.

Fructose is not a fat. Nor is glucose. You can quickly educate yourself by looking those things up on the net. Educating yourself in the use of English will take longer. Good luck!

the issue here is that serving size is 2 tbsp, and in the FDA world, anything under 0 (even if .9) is considered 0. its how they get away with "fatfree", and the 0% calcium is just a problem with that system.

Keep in mind that`s per serving, and they aren`t allowed to round up on nutrition labels. It likely has enough to say they`ve added calcium, but not enough to put it on the label.

"Its chocolate and its made with milk so there should be calcium!"

There`s no listing of chocolate or milk in the ingredients, just Coco.

@SherbertFizz:

Because it`s cheap and a well-known brand. Plus when you`re a kid you`ll put anything with sugar in your mouth no matter what it`s made of.
