Chocolate/hazelnut spread for breakfast?

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?
