Nutella is one of the great tasting spreads you can pick up at your local supermarket. Beware, once you pop the top of it, it's tough to stop!
The delicious, chocolatey almond spread was originally seen as being a great substitute for peanut butter, but a recent study found out you may as well spread chocolate cake frosting on your toast instead.
ABC looked into Nutella and other unhealthy foods and made a starling discovery: it's about as healthy as the Milky Way candy bar.
One tablespoon of Nutella contains 100 calories, 6 grams of fat, 2 grams of saturated fat and 11 grams of sugar.
In comparison, generic cake frosting has 75 calories, 3 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat and 7.5 grams of sugar. Cake frosting is officially healthier!
Nutella was taken to court for advertising it as a healthy breakfast treat and lost to the woman. They also settled a class-action lawsuit regarding the healthy advertising for $2.5 million. Anyone who bought Nutella from January 2008 to February 3, 2012 was entitled to a piece of the settlement. Contact your lawyer today!
