But what are advertisements then? Aren't they supposed to promote products? You would have to get rid of all advertisement as nothing is disclosed 100%. I didn't try but I wouldn't sue Vanish if it doesn't get one of my stains out iykwim? Ferrero would have to say "All we produce is sugar, chocolate and fat in a tasty form. Hope you enjoy", that somehow defeats the purpose of advertisement. Not that I watch ANY ads at all, so maybe I didn't get a chance to be misled.

But if you eat a healthy breakfast and have a coffee with it. Isnt the coffee a PART of that breakfast? Even if not healthy itself? Well, anyway, the ad is supposed to be changed anyway, so curious to see, or hear, what it will be like.

Ms so and so was surprised and upset to learn that Nutella was I fact not a healthy, nutritious food.
OMG the shock, the horror.
I wonder how long it took her to figure out how many calories it had.... Must take years to turn the jar around and look.
We could take every ad to court cause they are all full of crap.

I cringe at nutella ads. Really I think we should all sue.
Its one thing to say "your children will love nutella for breakfast because it tastes great!" all positive things.
But saying its nutritious is like saying a snickers bar is a healthy breakfast for a child because it contains nuts and milk. Mmmm

This reminds me of the Ribena fiasco. They always promoted the fact that they had 44% RDI of vitamin C...contains 4 times the amount of Vit C that oranges do....when in fact, there was no Vitamin C in there at all!!
In addition to the misleading representations that the Ribena range "contained four times the vitamin C of oranges" in its advertising and packaging, cartoned ready to drink Ribena falsely claimed on the label to have 7 mg of vitamin C per 100ml or 44 per cent of the recommended daily intake when it had no detectable vitamin C content.
Anyways, anyone who actually believes nutella is healthy is nuts.
Hahahaha Geddit, nuts!!!!!!!

Ofcourse it can be 'part' of a healthy breakfast...serve some bread, a banana and a glass of milk (as they advertise) and there ya go
- it might not be contributing much nutrition itself - but, it's still 'part of it'
We only buy Nutella (or of late the Fair trade Hazelnut choc spread) very occasionally... and LURVE it in a banana an dyogurt smoothie. nom nom nom.
Haven't read the article, s'pose I should go do that now.

Next someone is going to tell me that my takeaway coffee is hot and might burn me if I tip it over myself.
