Is it the dessert topping that eats like a spread, or the spread that can also be a dessert topping? That's a question the U.S. government is asking about Nutella, the chocolate and hazelnut treat, in a new request for comments. The answer could cut the number of calories and fat listed on Nutella's nutritional labels in half.

Hmm it can be very interesting how food is classified, and what it means for the product. Nutella falls in to the category of dessert topping rather than breakfast spread. But isn't Pizza classified as a vegetable in the US?

Nutella is clearly a “dessert topping.” It tastes like dessert and it packs a caloric punch like dessert: two tablespoons of Nutella count for 200 calories and 21 grams of sugar. Yes, that’s almost as many calories as a six-inch Subway “veggie delite” sandwich.

Yes I love this stuff. Outside of peanut butter Nutella is the next best thing.

Yummers! I love Nutella. Is it like a almond butter or something?

Is Nutella a spread or a dessert topping? The Food and Drug administration is on a mission to find the answer. The FDA is also asking for help and will accept public input on this question until January 3, 2017. Nutella is made by Ferrero, an Italian.

Other dessert toppings are marshmallow cream, chocolate syrup, frosting, and various spreads. These are rich, creamy, dense, and not especially healthy. A quick glance shows that chocolate syrup and marshmallow cream have about 150 calories per two-tablespoon serving. This is in the same general range as Nutella.
