French Ecology Minister Ségolène Royal urged consumers to stop eating Nutella.


I hope you weren't having a good day, because this is terrible news. And of course, France is behind it.

In an interview on Canal+, the French Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, Ségolène Royal, urged everyone listening to stop eating Nutella, the beloved Italian hazlenut/chocolate spread. Royal explained:

“We have to replant a lot of trees because there is massive deforestation that also leads to global warming. We should stop eating Nutella, for example, because it's made with palm oil. Oil palms have replaced trees, and therefore caused considerable damage to the environment."
