   Today in ColoradoBiz Exclusives
Last week, the FDA proposed a significant makeover to the Nutrition Facts label.  Apparently the government does not trust us to do basic math (270 calories per serving of B&J’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough x 4 servings = 1080 calories per pint!).  Or perhaps we don’t trust ourselves to scoop out 4 ounces of Chunky Monkey, and replace the unused portion back in the freezer. The new labels, which will take a year or more to implement will have realistic serving sizes.  You would think selecting the flavor Chubby Hubby would indicate you’re in for a caloric wallop regardless of your ability to read the side panel.

New IRS property rules you need to know

It’s not that women are by and large smarter than men.
