Default Calories in Shrimp

I realize this happens all the time, but I found it frustrating today. I purchased several 1 lb. bags of frozen, raw, peeled, and deveined jumbo shrimp from the local Wal-Mart for fast meals. These bags are all identical EXCEPT the nutritional information on two bags states that the calories in a 4 oz. serving is 35 calories, and the other two bags states that the calories in a 4 oz. serving is 100 calories.

Now, I do not count calories, but this is frustrating. All the other info is the same except for protein. The higher calorie bag has a higher protein content. Hm.

How silly and annoying! 4 oz of shrimp is about 100 calories. Maybe the lower cal bag meant 4 shrimp! Same processor on bags? I'd check the website and let them know the discrepancy.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
