A snack-size posting

This posting is only snack-size (or bite-size if you prefer), so it's much less fattening than a normal posting- or is it? Dutch scientists have discovered that when people are offered "snack-size" crisp packets or normal sized ones, they end up eating several of them, containing more crisps than a normal bag.

The researchers came up with the theory that people justify eating several snack-size chocolate bars or packets of crisps because they contain fewer calories, but eat several at a sitting. So there you are - snack-size packets can make you fat. OK, you can go to the kitchen now.
