Some Things Aren't Supposed to be Healthy

I just saw a commercial on TV for Nutella. If you don't know what Nutella is you need to quit reading this post, go to the grocery store and get some Nutella (usually found by the peanut butter and jellies).

The commercial is about a mom talking about how Nutella is so healthy and she uses it to get her kids to eat healthy. "I spread it on multi grain toast and a lot of other healthy things" "it contains great ingredients such as hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of chocolate"

Nutella is as far from healthy as Pluto is from the Sun. Some things are simply delicious and not good for you - i.e. Nutella.

I am so dumbfounded by the commercial that I have looked up the nutritional information for Nutella. A serving, 2 tablespoons contains:
- 200 calories (100 from fat)
- 22 g Carbs
- 21 g Sugar
- 11 g Fat (3.5 g Saturated Fat)

I do want to make it very clear that Nutella is absolutely delicious and I highly recommend it. But let's be real and not try to make something that's not healthy appear to be healthy. In my opinion the ad should simply say: Buy Nutella - it's awesome.
