    She doesn't come across that way, which part makes you think that? It was clearly misleading, someone finally took the time to pull them up on it.

    I'm sorry but really, common sense. Am I the only person who reads the labels on products to see the nutritional values?

    I don't even have to read the label on sweets to know that there is NO nutricional value lol. It's a treat. We have Nutella and we love our Nutella but it is nothing more than a treat. At the same time I wouldn't write a letter to Kellog's saying I am shocked that Coco Pops are not healthy...

    Exactly... Anyone who thinks chocolate spread for breakfast is healthy is an idiot.

    I am a firm believer that products should be advertised for what the actually are. Promoting Nutella as anything other than a sugar loaded chocolate spread IS in fact misleading.

    It's not nutritious at all.

    I hope this sets some kind of precedent for other rubbish that's marketed as nutritious.

    I laugh everytime I see the nutella ad on tv. Breakfast is only nutritious with nutella if u have 2xmultigrain toast and banana and a glass of
    Milk and vitamins and weetbix and whatever else. Who can eat all that in one sitting?!

    Exactly. PP of course you are not the only one who reads labels. There are a few companies I have wanted to take to task over their advertising, hopefully this will be be a kick in the backside for them. You don't have to misuse a product to realise the advertising is false.

    No, you're not. But products shouldn't be advertised as something they are not. We wouldn't buy a car advertised as having 4 wheels to pick it up and discover it only has 3. This is no different.
