Nutricate Prints Nutritional Information Right on Receipts

Nutritional Information Printed on Receipt: Cool or Not?

Nutricate, a new company, has developed technology that prints the nutritional information of your purchased meal right on the receipt. The way I see it, it could go two ways: the new receipts may make some of us feel horrible that we just purchased a meal that has 1,000 calories while others can feel overjoyed with how many calories they are saving by simply saying, "Hold the mayo." I could see this becoming a problem when folks get their receipt and want to change their order completely after they've realized they've just purchased a heart attack on a plate.

What do you guys think — is nutritional information printed on the receipts of food you ordered cool or not?

i think its cool but i do agree with the others that info should be made known to you before you eat it

Should be on menu instead so it's not so much of a surprise...

No, if you care enough to count calories, you'd want to know before. Knowing afterwards would just increase the guilt factor. Frankly, if you order french fries and a burger, you know they're not the healthiest, lowest calorie items ever. I don't want to have nutritionals shoved in my face after eating.

By the time you get the recipe you have already made the purchase. I want my nutritional information before not after.

I think it would be great, honestly. It'd be really helpful when you're dieting or just watching your intake and unsure about portion size or whatever.

i think that it's cool - sometimes you just want to know these things

Not cool, this calorie obsession is way out of control, believing in calories either makes you under or overweight. America is both calorie and diet obsessed, yet they are the most obese nation in the world, I'd say there is an obvious problem there ;)

i guess it's cool if it's just an fyi sort of thing & dieters/health conscious people might appreciate it. the info on the receipt might move people to make better choices in the future, but it'd be better to give people the information before they place an order.

I love this so much. If you watch your nutritional intake, this is a wonderful idea because even if you were to get fast food for some reason, you could then plan the rest of your day based on the damage you just did to try to even it out.

I thinks its really cool and could be totally helpful - but there are those times where i just want a sundae and I don't want to have to worry about calories!

Seems like a great idea to me - but I think it would be really simple before they print the receipt to ask if you want the nutritionals added to your receipt. While I would want to see it, I dont think its right to force people to look at it (from a social or business perspective). The new millennium is about choice.

it's cool, i like it, seems really fun thou i do agree it could lead to guilt or uneasy feelings after knowing that maybe you feel like you picked the wrong menu

I think it's a great idea! I count calories and am always checking out the nutritional info of places and I hate when restaurants don't share that info.
