Chocolate/hazelnut spread for breakfast?

November 17th, 2009 by Rosa

From the Bitten blog, light outrage about Nutella trying to position itself as a healthy breakfast option. I see the problem with that promotion, but it’s not that far from sugary cereals claiming to be part of a complete breakfast, or the General Mills Goodness Corner claiming that cereals are a good source of energy (aka calories) or calcium (from the milk you pour on it).

    Reminds me of the 1970s and 1980s commercials from Wonderbread which claimed it was healthy, too. Iirc, the fda tried to take them to court for that.

    Oh please! Are they really trying to say that it’s nourishing?
