    ^^Oh my god, Tati, I am so going to try that (well, as soon as I can find some hazelnut butter in my little town). That sounds unbelievable.

    And back to topic - this woman is an idiot. Seriously.

    Tati, if I ever figure out where to buy hazelnut butter here, I'm definitely giving this a try.

    Seriously? A chocolate spread is bad for you? If I ever got over my hate of hazelnuts, I still wouldn't eat that crap.

    Try a natural foods or organic foods store for the hazelnut butter. I get a really tasty almond butter at a natural foods store close to my house - no sugar, just ground almonds.

    God this woman is stupid. Nutella on a slice of wholegrain toast as a sweet snack is alright, like having that instead of a chocolate bar or slice of cake, but eating it for breakfast and actually believing it's nutritious is just plain stoopid.

    ^ almond butter is delicious!! We buy an organic one with just almonds and sea salt. Cashew butter is amazing as well except if I buy it I eat half the jar in a day.

    What did she think Nutella was anyway, a fucking spread that magically made you lose weight. Dumb broad. -_-

    Oh man. I've always joked about that but I never thought it could be real. I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the depth of human stupidity.

    Right??


    This twit I used to work with was telling another co-worker one day that Nutella was "healthy" and would work as a substitute for peanut butter on her diet.
    She was shocked when I told her that it was, uhhh still a highly-processed nut butter. But with chocolate. And extra sugar.

    Idiot.

    It's a little too sweet for me. I like almond butter and peanut butter. The kind you can grind yourself at the store. I miss the taste of Jiff and Peter Pan though!

    Good luck with the lawsuit moron.

    This product is completely and falsely, positioned as a nutritious food. That's the key issue. It's a lie, and the tone and impression that is left with consumers is that it is healthy. That's against the law in Canada which is why they had to tone down there ads here vs. Europe but it is still misleading.

    It's a legal food product and the manufactureres have a right to market it but to suggest in any way that it is healthy is completely misleading.

    On principle alone, Ferrero, the company that owns the nutella brand needs to be called out on unethical marketing.

    As an aside, I don't buy it because if I did, I would eat the whole damn thing! YUM!!

    But it's a snack and indulgence. NOT in any way, part of a healthy meal. No pictures of hazelnuts, milk or mom are going to change that.

    i know, but isn't that how most commercials aimed at kids are, its so sad b/c a whiny kid begging for sugary food is so annoying that finally many parents just give in.
