    I hate the Nutella advertisements, too. They make it look like Nutella is healthy and a great start in the day. But everybody who is capable of reading and isn't an utter moron should know that this is not true.

    I'm having some right now. It's no worse than jam on my toast.

    ^Though of course the difference with jam is that most people don't eat it straight out of the jar.

    The comments are making me crave Nutella like crazy.

    Mmm, Nutella. I loved it as a kid. This woman is stoopid.

    Nutella for breakfast is gross. Every othr meal of the day, sure, but not in the mornings. It's like candy to me.

    Nutella on toast plus black coffee is a complete breakfast and nobody can tell me otherwise.

    So did anyone here know that Saturday was World Nutella Day? I just saw this mentioned at one of my foodie forums.

    I hear that! I don't do it often, but I prefer to eat the sweet/fatty stuff in the morning than at any other time, it gives me enough time to burn it off.

    The law is about impression and so whether or not someone reads the ingredient list is besides the point. The ads are misleading.

    I've worked in food advertising and these ads are totally illegal as they misrepresent the product to consumers.

    I love that when mom is yapping about how healthy the product is, she neglects to mention that sugar and palm oil are the first two ingredients and, thus, make up the bulk of the spread. Palm oil, which is about 50% saturated fat, is one of the least healthy oils you could eat.

    Should be a national holiday.

    They really could get by with about half the sugar they add.
    Watch, after all this falderah, they'll start adding fake sweetener and claim lower sugar levels.
