LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Fans are not loving the new recipe for Nutella.
Nutella says it adjusted its recipe to include more powdered skim milk, a change that has lightened the color of the product.
The change was detected by a German consumer-watchdog group that says the change was probably made to make up for less cacao but cannot confirm that theory, and Ferrero is not forced to legally disclose a change like that.
Ferrero, the maker of Nutella, has admitted to a “fine-tune” of the recipe but says the quality of the product remains the same.
Nutella has a rabid fan following, many of whom were not happy about the changes.
