When is 8oz really 16oz?

The recipe calls for 20oz of Cabot Sharp cheddar all natural shredded cheese.

BUT, when you look at the package, it says, "NEW WT. 8 OZ." and then over on the right it shows a little picture of two measuring cups and underneath it says "2 CUPS."

What is the deal?

How am I supposed to figure out how much I need to buy for a recipe that requires 20oz?

The safe play would be to get (2) packages.

Well, it turns out that one package is enough, even though it is 4oz short.

I guess it has something to do with the difference between weight and volume.

Maybe I should have paid attention in High School Cooking class.

Hey, wait a minute! I never took that class.
