One television advertisement shows a mother preparing breakfast for her children before they run off to school. The mother implies that the only way her children will eat a healthy breakfast is if she slathers on some Nutella. Of course those kids want Nutella on their breakfast toast! It’s CHOCOLATE. Surprisingly, that’s exactly what Laura discovered—Nutella is no healthier than a candy bar. In two tablespoons of Nutella there are 200 calories, 21 grams of sugar, and 11 grams of fat. Should we call Captain Obvious now or later? Obviously, Nutella is a junk food that teeters on the side of passing as healthy, but if chocolate is one the main ingredients you should be eating it in moderation.
The courts awarded Athena and Laura with $3.5 million dollars which means that everyone who has bought a jar of Nutella in the last few years is entitled to a cut of the settlement. The $3.5 million dollars is expected to be broken down to $4 to $20 dollars per person who purchased Nutella between January 1, 2008 and February 3, 2012. To see if you’re entitled to some cash for neglecting to realize chocolate is still chocolate even when it’s for breakfast, check out the class action settlement’s website.
