Cool Whip Sizes in Canada

Why it’s so confusing to convert Cool Whip ounces to liter
I’m no expert in converting metric to imperial measurements, and as I googled and googled “8 ounces to liter” the results of the conversion just didn’t make sense!
The problems arise when you realize ounces are measured by weight or liquid (fluid ounces). In the case of Cool Whip, the ounces are measured by weight. However, liters are a liquid measurement, making Cool Whip sizes extra tricky to convert.
Eventually, I realized the best way to convert Cool Whip container sizes is by converting it into cups!
