It’s OK, you guys!
Nutella fans, take a deep breath. The makers of the hazelnut spread have acknowledged they altered its ingredients after a German regulatory board spotted the change.

The new recipe was first reported by the Hamburg Consumer Protection Center, which posted on its Facebook page. The center reported the ~new Nutella~ has more skimmed milk powder, and is a shade lighter than its old spread.
The new ingredients include less cocoa, slightly more sugar, and slightly less fat, the center said.
It added it asked the spread's makers, Ferrero, about the change, but got no response.
“Obviously, Ferrero does not want to grant its customers too much transparency,” it said.
