Accuracy In Labeling

So my wife opens up the package of Altoid's super-frickin'-insane sour apple gum yesterday, and as we're attempting to get past the first few seconds of battery-acid agony, she noticed the line on the front stating "Not a low-calorie food". So I flip over the container and check out the nutrition stats on the back. Looks like it's five calories per serving. Oh - and a serving is two pieces, as if I'd ever need two pieces of this stuff in one sitting for anything short of cleaning the garage floor. So that's 2.5 calories in one piece. If that's not "low calorie", what the heck is?
