If you’re one of those people who loves Nutella SO much that you would be totally cool with having it hooked right into your veins (let’s face it, there’s thousands of us), then you might want to stop reading this.
Ignorance is bliss, but we have a rather rude awakening for you.
A brutally honest photo uploaded to Reddit by user Mr Flow has gone viral, showing ALL the actual ingredients in Nutella, and it’s left us feeling a little sick (or, erm, guilty).
The breakdown of the ingredients includes a whopping amount of palm oil, a seriously small amount of cocoa and hazelnuts and a crazy amount of sugar.
We’ve known about the Palm Oil / Nutella debacle and the environmental implications for awhile now. But it’s the amount of sugar that really caught us off guard.
Knowing that there is a fair bit of sugar in Nutella isn’t rocket science, folks, but we never realised there was quite THIS much in one jar…

According to Ferrero, the ingredients and nutritional information detailed on Nutella’s labels fully comply with the requirements of Food Standards Australia and New Zealand.
“One of Ferrero’s core nutritional beliefs is that small portion sizes help people to enjoy their favourite foods in moderation,” Ferrero said in a statement to Mail Online.
AKA: next time you whip out a spoon out to dive right into a deep Nutella binge…you might want to take it easy!
We still absolutely love you, Nutella.
