retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Yesterday, MNB reported on a New York Times story saying that “in just three years, sales of 100-calorie packs of crackers, chips, cookies and candy have passed the $20-million-a-year mark, making them a breakout hit on par with the SnackWells low-fat fad of the 1990’s.”

I missed a zero. The story actually said “the $200-million-a-year mark.”

I goofed. I apologize.
