I’d Rather be Eating Nutella…

Being around a few teenagers last week, we got involved in a discussion about food, actually it quickly moved to snack food and eventually to the sweet item called Nutella. To those unfamiliar to Nutella, it’s a very sweet chocolate sandwich spread made in Canada for the North American market. Some say it’s similar to peanut butter considering the ingredients and being a sandwich spread and the fact it can be eaten directly out of the jar although some would argue peanut butter contains much less sugar and is perhaps a healthier choice. The main ingredients of Nutella include sugar and palm oil, not exactly the two healthiest ingredients. The other ingredients are hazelnut, cocoa solids and skim milk.

Anyway, even though these teenagers have nothing against peanut butter their love is Nutella. So as we got talking, jokingly, I attempted to offer other foods, many healthy items, instead of Nutella. Here’s the gist of our conversation.
