Statement from Wells:

Wells Enterprises takes the integrity of our products and their nutritional labeling very seriously. All of the Weight Watchers Frozen Novelty products are subjected to rigorous nutritional testing program by an accredited third party laboratory. We stand behind the reputation of the independent laboratory and their use of industry-accepted methodologies in determining complete nutritional results. Maintaining the trust and confidence of our consumers is critical and we work hard to make sure they have a clear and accurate understanding of the nutritional content of the food we produce.

Statement from Weight Watchers:

Both the Ice Cream Candy Bar and the Giant Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream Sundae Cone are manufactured by Wells Enterprises under a licensing agreement with us. We choose our licensed partners carefully and Wells Enterprises continues to be a reputable partner.

The quality of our licensed products, including the accuracy of the labels, is of the utmost importance to us, and we have quality controls in place with our licensees to ensure this. In particular, Weight Watchers requires manufacturers to conduct rigorous testing on product samples and provide full lab results from a designated independent and credentialed testing facility on nutritional information for our review. The test results Wells Enterprises has provided to us to date reflect that the products meet our quality standards and are consistent with the nutrition labels on the packaging.
