Nutella has secretly changed its recipe and we're all annoyed

Every now and then, there's nothing quite like a load of chocolate spread on your toast first thing in the morning.
But you might have noticed a slight change in the way it looks and tastes in recent times.
The new recipe has had an increase in powdered skimmed milk and sugar, making it somewhat sweeter. Ferrero has confirmed that it has taken the skimmed milk from 7.5% to 8.7%, and sugar from 55.9% to 56.3%.
As we all know, no one likes change when it comes to their daily routine, and fans have made their annoyance known.
"The quality and all the other characteristics of Nutella remain the same," Ferrero said in the statement, adding that brands make minor changes like this all the time.
German consumer group Hamburg Consumer Protection Centre has also speculated that the sugar and milk powder content has been increased at the expense of cacao, as the colour of the spread is lighter than before too.
First Toblerones change shape, now this.
