Wait a second... You mean people thought Nutella was a health food? I seriously, never, ever, ever would have guessed that anyone could have believed that to be true. It tastes about as healthy as frosting on a donut. Delicious in moderation but it's just too sickly sweet for anyone to possibly eat a lot of it in one sitting.. right? I'm not going to stop eating it because of the Palm Oil but please, if you think Nutella is Healthy, Step Away From The Jar!!!

Yes, there is a big health difference between palm fruit oil and palm kernel oil. Palm fruit oil has many benefits. And isn't Nutella made with the fruit oil, not the kernel oil?

I have friends in Paris whose kids eat Nutella every single day at breakfast. Nutella should remain an occasional treat, not an every day food.
