You know the saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?” Well, we better keep reminding Nutella that because the company, once loved all over the world for its decadent chocolate-hazelnut spread, is apparently changing its secret recipe.
That’s right — Nutella made the announcement in a Facebook post, and according to the post, they’re changing the formula to adding more sugar, more fat, and having fewer hazelnuts.
Nutella USA also confirmed the recipe change on Twitter:
our recipe underwent a fine-tuning and continues to deliver the Nutella fans know and love with high quality ingredients

Naturally, the internet wasn’t having it and Nutella fans expressed their disappointment and rage over the decision.
Why in the heck would you add more sugar? Completely unnecessary. Stop tweaking perfectly good recipes. Why make it even more unhealthy than it already was? Off brands have less sugar, are cheaper, and taste just as good.
