  • From that article, I can see the ruling may need work. From the headline, I can see that subby sounds fat.

    St_Francis_P: I can see that subby sounds fat.


    210. Down from a high of 270 (I'm 6'4").  Did it without this rule and still enjoy pizza as well. Go figure.
  • Clearly the flaw with this regulation is that it does not also mandate that calorie counts show up on the (also mandated) video screen on all telephones, both cellular and land-line, that are used to transmit orders to pizzerias.

    Why do you oppose common-sense ideas such as this? How's about you see what it's like in Somalia if you don't like this idea?
  • Will it be illegal to make pizzas to order because nutritional information has not been calculated?

    We already had a newspaper story about a school cutting out a salad bar because it was not possible to measure nutritional information or ration calories in a self-serve environment.

    Pizzas are made with set ingredients, the nutritional information of which can be easily determined.  Even made to order, you know that when someone orders a pepperoni pizza, you are going to use say 4 ounces of pepperoni on that pizza.  They order double, it's 8 ounces.  It's not difficult.
  • Calories in types of crust by size.

    Calories in each topping.

    This is just like goddamned rocket science.
  • They can have my pizza when they pry it from my cold, dead, fat fingers.
  • My ADD kicked in, and it didn't seem like the article was very clear to me.  Will it just be the large pizza chains like Papa John's and Pizza Hut or will it include small local places?
  • FTA:

    "I think pizza places should label calories-really, they can figure out how to do it," New York University professor of public health Marion Nestle

    Uh. Yeah. They can.

    Case closed.

    What they're saying is that it's impossible to list the nutritional information for every single possible pizza, as the law requires. And while ingredients may be used in the approximate same amount for all, it's not set, as most are made purely by hand without scoops

    The United States put a man on the moon in 1969, but goddamn it, this is just too much.
  • Wow people really need the government to tell them how to do everything. I can see how the anti-gun movement got rolling. You guys really don't question anything, do you? How hard is it to just not be a fatass?

    The question authority generation has given way to the do as your told it's for the good of society generation.

    Kind of difficult if you don't know what you are eating.  Why would anyone want something like that kept from them?

    Sure it is.  A label generator, Excel software, easy.  You can use Open Office, so no cost there.  Hell, you don't need the label generator, just Excel and print the results when you've tallied everything in the spreadsheet and tape it to the farking box.  That's what, a minute of work, maybe?

    I know!

    F*cking nanny state libtardos. Why can't they eat whatever calorie-laden chemical bath is put in front of them. Now they want to know what's in it!

    Stuck up ivory tower n0bama voters.

    Yawn. Stop being a moron.


    Don't buy "pizza" from Papa John's and you will know what's in your pie.

    Hey! I smell a business opportunity here. Perhaps an enterprising individual such as yourself could call on the local non chain joints and help them build these labels using all possible combinations and ingredients used. A minute or two per store with your laptop and a small fee later, they are in compliance! Win win man!

    Yes... giving nutritional info to a nation of fatasses is truly terrible.
  • I just want a farking pizza. I was told there would be no math.
  • See what I mean?

    Why should it be repealed?  Should it be repealed solely as to pizza shops, or for all restaurants?

    It seems like the free market crowd over at Reason (and here) should support more stringent labeling requirements. Y'know, since the supposedly greater efficiencies that come with free markets depend on (relatively) equ access to accurate information by consumers and between buyers and sellers. That is, if the free market crowd really supports free markets.

    Free market means that business are free to control the market, not that the market itself is free of manipulation.

    Man oh man. You're a regular Milton Friedman!
