Someone needs to take a nutrition class instead of filing a lawsuit. Was Nutella remiss in their advertising?
 
What will they tell me next?

Try that one. I'm with you, mar...who seriously thought that chocolate spread was actually healthy?!? But they did say that in the commercials (it's part of a healthy breakfast because it's got hazelnuts and skim milk along with a "touch" of cocoa), and people are morons. If this woman chose not to read the f-ing nutrition information but rather blindly trust ADVERTISING, she deserves what she gets. And I'd be willing to bet she also slathered it on her daughter's toast with a trowel, rather than reading the serving size.
 
My mother asked me if I was going to put in a claim, since I buy Nutella all the time. I laughed hysterically.

If healthy was on my mind, I doubt I would have grabbed the jar of Nutella to add to my cupcake.

I'm not a fan of Nutella.  It's the hazelnut taste I dislike although I like them right out of the shell.
 
I'm now thinking that a sandwich of peanut butter and a Hershey Bar microwaved for 20 seconds might be better.
 
Maybe I should add sliced bananas for fruit.

Ohmygod...I think you've just decided what I'm having for dinner. I have all of those things in my house right now, and that sounds AMAZING! Add a tall glass of cold milk, and it becomes almost a balanced meal.

So what!
 
I have no expectation that anything that tastes as good as Nutella (or crunchy peanut butter for that matter) is particularily "healthy".
 
Life is meant to be lived.  It is not meant to be spent cowering in fear about about death.  When Jim Fixx died an untimely death it was both tragic and instructive.

it is not my intention to offend Americans, but if anyone could kindly explain why so many seem to like to sue, and why are there so many court shows.
 
it seems that people need to take more responsaiblity for their choices and apply REASON instead of blaming Nutella.
It says on the label how much sugar, fat, and calories it has in a tablespoon. Not a health food.
 
Did you know there are people out there lobbying the government to stop selling chips, pop, candy etc. What do they want the goverment to babysit them and make choices? That is what parents do for their kids. We are adults and we make choices, why are people always whining? 
 
Sorry..i went off on a tangent, and I agree with you Mar52

It is a lot easier when you just do what you are told to, and don't have to do your own thinking!

The government is supposed to protect us from each other, not from ouselves.
