Kroger hot cocoa

Kroger had their hot cocoa on sale, so I checked the carbs for the 'no sugar added" & it has 10g. I couldn't believe it when I saw the 'no fat" one only has 4g. Makes no sense.

Sounds like they are "matching" the brand names (swiss miss?) ... the no sugar added is typically higher in calories and carbs than the "diet" version... Kroger might be calling the version comparable to the brand name "diet" version "fat free"

PS.... the no sugar added has more milk powder (lactose) than the diet version (the diet version aims to lower calories but by cutting down the milk powder also lowers carbs, and replacing sugar with artificial sweetener)... milk powder has lactose in it but the label can still claim no sugar added because the milk powder naturally contains the lactose.
