Chocolate chips and the Navy

This appeared in the margin of a food magazine that showed up in the mail today:

"There are at least 1,000 and as many as 1,500 chocolate chips in each bag of Chips Ahoy! Cookies, according to a study conducted by the United States Naval Academy."

Please tell me no tax dollars went to train our troops to count chocolate chips!

Maybe these guys were in training to staff that Naval Undersea Research Facility that we found out in the middle of the Nevada desert.

I can totally see a study like that being conducted in a junior high school classroom in a public school. I'd probably do a study like that with my students. But the US Naval Academy? It just sounds so...hmmm.
