Nutella Secretly Change Their Beloved Recipe

The world’s most beloved chocolate and hazelnut spread, Nutella has sent fans into a frenzy all over the world after they revealed that they have secretly changed their recipe.

The shocking news was first revealed on the German Hamburg Consumer Protection Centre Facebook page last week after they noticed the recipe change on the new Nutella jars, and that the tweak had made the chocolate spread’s colour lighter. The new recipe contains 8.7% powdered skimmed milk, compared to 7.5% in the original recipe. To make things worse the sugar content has increased. Yes, you heard me right. The sugar content has risen to a staggering 56.3% from 55.9%. Apparently, 227 grams of sugar wasn’t enough, Yikes! Normally I don’t overreact to news like this, but seriously Nutella, why change something that is already perfect? Smart fans will be rushing out in pure panic in the hopes that they can grab the remaining original Nutella jars.

Nutella is manufactured by Italian company Ferrero and has been around since after World War II. At the time there was a shortage of cocoa due to World War II rationing. Italian chef Pietro Ferrero took on the challenge to get creative and produce a chocolate alternative by using hazelnuts as the main ingredient, with added sugar and a bit of cocoa. I don’t think Pietro would be too happy to hear about his legendary recipe being ‘tweaked’.

While Nutella took to Twitter to ‘Assure’ us that the quality and taste of the spread will remain the same and that the recipe underwent a ‘fine-tuning’, fans couldn’t help but respond to the upsetting news all over twitter. #NutellaGate started trending and some of the tweets are pretty funny.
