    Default Yeow..might want to rethink your Nutella addiction.

    I am not big on certain nuts so never did get hooked on this........and it sounds like it might be a good thing I didn't. (I even have a jar of almond butter that I am going to have trouble getting rid of......not crazy about it either!)

    Yeow.......if you have been eating Nutella and feeding it to your kids, thinking it was a "good thing", you might want to read this.

    Seems like I remember Palooka saying she was in love with it..........better check this out P.

    Course, you also have to ask...............DOESN'T ANYONE READ A LABEL????????????????

    Someone should inform NBC that "SD" means South Dakota.

    I don't see how anyone could win this suit, unless the information on the nutrition label is not accurate. If someone is dumb enough to believe the ad claims, that's on them. Every company tries to make its products seem better than they are. It's up to the consumer to look at the nutritional info on every package and decide if they really want to give their kids a product that's 70% processed sugar and saturated fat.

    A lot of people think store bought yogurt is a healthy food too, or granola bars. I could go on and on. Let the additional lawsuits commence!

    Sheesh. Some juries.

    It's considered a dessert/treat item at our house. All you have to do is examine the label.

    The search for "Nutella nutritional info" took exactly 0.23 seconds. This was at the top of the page, not hard to find.
    Nutella and Nutrition: Food Pyramid and Guidelines

    What possible excuse could a parent have for not knowing this is not health food? Why on Earth would she have to hear it "through the grapevine"?

    Looks like this was a class action suit. Which means no one will get anything except the lawyers.

    Maybe the rest of the food industry needs to go on notice.

    I'm not sure why anyone would think Nutella is healthy? It looks like spreadable chocolate

    Hmmm, I never knew people thought Nutella was healthy. I can't seem to recall but I thought the first or second ingredient was sugar and although nuts are healthy they need to be eaten in moderation because of their fat content.

    I read this earlier on Yahoo! news. I couldn't believe someone actually got money from this! We have a jar in our house for occasional snacks. Come on...the second ingredient is SUGAR!

    Adding salt to nuts isn't a good thing either.

    Just saw on the nightly news that they settled a 3 million dollar lawsuit.
    That it is not healthy and a serving has as much sugar and fat as a three muskateer bar.
    So Nutella is now baking off their healthy claim.

    Thought I would look up jif peanut butter. Here is there nutritional info.


    Jif | Products | Details | Creamy Peanut Butter

    Growing up peanut butter was considered somewhat healthy. Seems Nutella has less fat grams though. Just makes you wonder about anything processed being good for you?

    Almost anything processed isn't good for you. At least when they add a bunch of junk to it. I guess technically even if you grind your own grain and can your own veggies, that's still processed food.

    I'm sure we'll never commit to it 100%, but more and more I'm starting to believe whole foods are the answer to a lot of health and nutrition problems.

    Ha!! I love it!

    ---------------

    Common sense went out the window EONS ago. And I have a jar in my cupboard for a repeat house guest. He loves it. I eat it on occasion and its TOTALLY a treat. Do I think its 'good' for me? Pfft! Anything that tastes THAT good definitely IS NOT good for me, this I know.
