Nutella nuts outraged by recipe change

Posted: Updated:

Are you angry Nutella changed their recipe?

Yes!
No, not really
I hate Nutella

Fans of Nutella, the chocolate hazelnut spread, are in outrage after Ferrero secretly changed the product's recipe.

The changes were spotted by a German consumer group called Hamburg Consumer Protection Centre. They point out the recipe now contains more powdered skim milk, more powdered sugar and fewer hazelnuts.

The Guardian reports that specifically, "the new recipe has increased the content of powdered skimmed milk from 7.5% to 8.7%, and sugar from 55.9% to 56.3%."

Ferrero, who manufactures Nutella, confirmed the recipe change but maintains the nutritional value is similar to before.

Fans of the creamy confection took to Twitter to voice their outrage at the recipe change using the hashtag #BoycottNutella. Twitter user @MiuWasHere said not to mess with perfection.

Twitter user @StefanGrimminck said it's just not the same.

Twitter user @RosshNosh said to leave it alone!
