A quick way to make the nutrition number data become useful information:
To ensure I am getting something substantial and not too sugary, I add
the grams of fat + fiber + protein and compare to grams of sugar.
The more that total is greater than the sugar, the better that item is, and the more likely I will choose it.
(For salty items, having less than about 160 mg per serving means I'll view it more favorably.)
