Hey, just a plain, normal, once in a while user. I was trying to enter this:

1 cup of coffee and 1 cup of icecream verses 1/2 cup of gravy and 2 buiscuts

In wolfram alpha but it doesn't like it. It can do each phrase, and can do a verses of individual things; just not all together. This might be something to add, because now me and my co-worker have to compare these by hand to find out which breakfast is better.

EDIT: the answer was biscuits and gravy. It had less cholesterol and more iron.

I corrected the spelling error of "verses" to "versus", but it didn't change anything. I even inserted a "compared to" instead of versus. No luck. This was the best I could come up with:

show nutritution facts for 1 cup coffee, 1 cup ice cream, 1/2 cup gravy, 2 biscuits

Maybe it doesn't format the results in the most visually convenient way, but at least the information is all there: first individually, then all together by calories, carbs, and other groups.
