Re: "250 grams (1 pound)"
"Back in the day when such things were of interest to a much younger Git, an "ounce" was 30 gm, so a pound would have been 16 times that: 480 gm. Sounds like you're being ripped off for more than an "ounce"."
Sorry to disagree, but I would say that in fact someone was being extremely generous with you.
1 Ounce = 28.3495231 Grams
