Question Flex Points on Multi-Serving Containers

Hello everyone!

I don't think I ever knew the answer to this from doing WW Flex back in 1999-2001...

If you have a "family size" container of hummus, 17 servings of 2 Tb. each, would you calculate your Points by the individual 2 Tb. serving:

Calories: 70
Fat: 5 grams
Fiber: 2 grams
---------------------------------
1 Point x 17 = 17 Points total

Or by the whole container?

Calories: 1190
Fat: 85 grams
Fiber: 34 grams
---------------------------------
30 Points for whole tub

Quite a difference! I'm thinking it's due to the "4 or more" grams of Fiber formula wiping out the extra Fiber in the whole tub.

So yeah, I just ate a whole tub of hummus for lunch/dinner with mixed raw vegetables

What would you go by? Thank you for your advice!

If you ate the whole tub at one sitting, you'll have to take the hit for the tub. 30 points.
