Nutella, good or evil – examining the controversy

Controversy Nutella - en - short
You may have never heard the controversy around Nutella that raged earlier in 2015. Everybody got emotional, the Italian officials were offended (Ferrero the company that makes Nutella is an Italian pride) and it ended up being a battle between who will never let go Nutella and advocates from various  horizons. At Sci&Fi we shook our head in dismay – is anyone, ever, able to keep their critical minds? So, here’s a little information that gives you an overview of the pros and cons that should have been at the centre of the debate.
