Safeway Select Extra Dark Chocolate

I have a question about this product. I've been eating a square or two everyday without any poor consequence yet, but I'm still unsure. The label says:


Total Carbs

9 g


Dietary Fiber

5 g


Sugars

7 g

Which to my calculation is 4 net carbs per serving. HOWEVER...how can it have less net carbs than grams of sugar?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I think that it's made in Switzerland. Perhaps it is using European labeling standards (though it shouldn't be if it is sold in the U.S.) In Europe they subtract out the fiber already when reporting "carbs". If that's the case it would have 14 g carb, 5 g fiber, 7 g sugar. On the other hand, I found a site online which shows this product has 9 g carb, 5 g fiber, 4 g sugar per 33 g serving. That would make more sense. Either way, something is off on your label. You might want to contact Safeway or whomever is listed as the manufacturer if you want to be sure.
