Think chocolate hazelnut spread is healthy?

Think again.

chocolateschocolates

Just did a side by side comparison with chocolate frosting we had for last minute birthday cupcakes. The stats for a 2-tablespoon serving: total calories 130 frosting, 230 jif. Total fat 5g frosting, 14g jif. Sat fat 1.5g frosting, 3.5g jif. Sugars 18g frosting 21g jif. The one downside to the frosting: 2g trans fat.

This spread is jif chocolate, but it’s the same kind of numbers for Nutella

    THANK YOU! I never understood why it was so popular on the “healthy living” blogs…

  2. I scoff everytime I see the Nutella commercials….”made with hazelnuts, skim milk, and a hint of cocoa” oh boy…they are trying to make it sound like its a nutritious staple, when really its more of something to use as a treat once in a while…and only 2g of protein? Peanut butter is better than that. But still…it is really delicious and I won’t argue with that!
