Nutella gets lighter and sweeter. Aka more milk powder and sugar

Won't be buying that again. Nor Terrys Chocolate Oranges. Nor Creme Eggs. angry

Profit before taste angry humppfffff.

Nutella is rank anyway

Not Nutella too sad

PrivateParkin Tue 07-Nov-17 07:03:07

Oh no, really?! Sigh. Also vanilla what happened to chocolate oranges?? I haven't had one for a while.

VanillaSugar Tue 07-Nov-17 07:04:12

Do you remember the advert when they tried to market it as a healthy breakfast spread? "It contains cocoa, milk powder and hazelnuts."....... yeah, and palm oil and a tonne of sugar. angry The only saving grace was that it did taste heavenly but if they're mucking about with this as well, then what's the point of it?

Kraft bought out Terrys and changed the formula to include more oil. They taste greasy now. Lots of threads about this on MN grin

I doubt that people will be able to detect a 0.4% increase in sugar and 1.2% increase in milk. Click bait hmm

How weird though putting in MORE sugar, most folk these days are trying to get away with giving us less.

Ktown Tue 07-Nov-17 07:08:59

Nutella is 70% sugar already! What are they adding to it?!?

ChardonnaysPrettySister Tue 07-Nov-17 07:14:22

Nutella is mostly sugar with some palm oil anyway.

Why would anyone want to eat it is a mystery.

VanillaSugar Tue 07-Nov-17 07:43:47

Busted!!! Because clearly I have never posted anything on MN before, ever.

deepestdarkestperu Tue 07-Nov-17 07:53:07

Nutella is grim anyway - never understood why so many people are obsessed with it!

IveGotBillsTheyreMultiplying Tue 07-Nov-17 07:57:23

I never buy it. It’s far too sweet and I’d rather eat a nut butter.

SoupDragon Tue 07-Nov-17 08:13:37

I doubt that people will be able to detect a 0.4% increase in sugar

So why increase it?

It's 57% sugar already (I checked)

Nutella used to be the food of the god when I was a kid. Now it’s vile and over sweet and far less nutty- the recipe isn’t the same (even before these new changes)

These days I use a no sugar added nut spread topped with Tesco finest dark choc spread (has about half the amount of total carbs that Nutella does. Yum!

CaptainHammer Tue 07-Nov-17 08:45:08

I’m not a big Nutella fan anymore, it never seems to spread well. I prefer Lidl’s version.

Birdsgottafly Tue 07-Nov-17 08:45:37

Try Aldi's version and Hotel Chocolate Orange (anything).

We should be paying more for chocolate. Cadbury's have been found guilty of buying illegally grown beans, from rainforest areas. Our chocolate and coffee consumption is making lots of apes/species critically extinct.

GlitterGlue Tue 07-Nov-17 08:45:51

The dark chocolate oranges are still ok, but are rarely seen in the shops.

I wish they’d stop fucking with perfectly good food. It’s not for taste, it’s usually for profit.

dantdmistedious Tue 07-Nov-17 08:45:56

It’s been horrid for a while it goes all clumpy.

BobbinThreadbare123 Tue 07-Nov-17 08:50:03

Palm oil sad

They have ruined my favourite Chocolate Orange. Dairy Milk is foul and greasy. Snickers is about it for me now.

Nutella is basically cake frosting. I make my own version with whole nut peanut butter, dates or bananas, coconut milk and cocoa powder or dark chocolate (whatever is to hand).

AuntyElle Tue 07-Nov-17 09:00:59

This stuff is amazing. Like Nutella should (used to) taste.

user1495832265 Tue 07-Nov-17 09:02:04

YANBU OP.
I remember visiting France many years ago and tasting Nutella for the first time. Can't eat it now.

On chocolate, Cadbury's messed about with for years, now inedible. Agree about Chocolate Orange.
I've even noticed that a lot of the traditionally better quality, high end chocolate is full of shit ingredients now. I don't like dark chocolate and I have struggled to find a decent milk chocolate bar that's not crappy.

Anatidae Tue 07-Nov-17 09:03:57

Oh... I bought some the other day and thought it tasted different.

Bummer. Another one bites the dust. Will have to trawl round the supermarket brands sad
