Dear Weight Watchers®:

I am writing regarding your GIANT Peanut Butter Fudge Sundae Cone. I see on the box and on your website that it is worth 2 points on the Weight Watchers flexible POINTS® plan. What I need to know is, how many POINTS® is it worth if I knock off the chocolate chips, scoop out the low-fat peanut butter ice cream, and just eat the fudge-lined cone?

Callipygously yours,

PS: Thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing Lean Cuisine® Chicken Club Panini to declare its worth in POINTS® right on the package - only 7!
