If Kids Eat it in a Commercial...

It must be nutritious, right? I mean, kids are eating it. In a commercial.
Who would have thought that if you take some type of nut butter and add sugar and chocolate, you would end up with, you know, candy. (To borrow another product's one-time tagline, "Candy? For breakfast? It's Reese's!") And if you taste Nutella, surprise - it tastes like candy.

As I recall, the commercial doesn't say "Nutella is healthy". Its statements are more along the lines of, "I use Nutella to get my kids to eat healthy food," and "I spread a little on all sorts of healthy things." It seems to me to be akin to touting cheese sauce as a way to get kids to eat broccoli.

Ah, childhood memories....

  1. I guess that's what happens when you try to get cute and imply your product is healthy when it's not.
