A Lie

Using the results of detailed studies involving thousands of participants, focus groups, and taste tests, Ferrero, the manufacturer the Nutella brand chocolate and hazelnut spread, has subtly tweaked their recipe to better serve the individual needs of its many international markets. While Ferrero keeps the recipes in strict secrecy, independent tasting and review boards have reported on the differences, and they are quite telling. For instance, the Italian product has 40% less sugar per weight than its American counterpart. In England the hazelnut flavor is the strongest, and curiously, the color is almost black. In Brazil, however, it is basically just a chocolate spread, the hazelnut barely perceptible. The label of a French jar suggests you stir it into milk, to be enjoyed as a tasty beverMERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
