From an article by Richard Verrier in today's Los Angeles Times:
The nation's cinema operators are fuming about proposed federal rules that could require them to disclose the calories in their concession food — including popcorn, a highly profitable item for theater chains.
The article quotes a study by the Center for Science in the Public Interest that found "that a large popcorn serving contained as much as 1,460 calories — which is the equivalent of eating nearly three McDonald's Big Macs."
What do you think about this? Should movie theaters have to post nutritional information?
