    1 ounce = 28.3495231 gram . So 8 oz = 226.80 grams

      226.8 g

      By the way, the figure comes from Google. Just type "0.5 pound in grams" (without the quotation marks) in the Google search box. Works for all kinds of conversions.

        Figure approx. 250 grams in 1/2 lb. Therefore, 500-ish grams in a pound. The measurements are not precise but if the ingredient has been standardized (as in Canada), what you'll usually get instead of an 8-oz block of cream cheese is a 250 gram package.
