Ridiculous! Mom wins $3 Million lawsuit against Nutella

Seriously?? Since when did people start getting paid for their stupidity??

A San Diego Mom, Athena Hohenberg sued Ferrero, the company that manufactures the highly addictive yet apparently not terribly healthy spread Nutella for false advertising. The company settled a $3 million lawsuit filed by Athena in February 2011.

Hohenberg, it seems, believed that Nutella was a great dietary choice for her four-year-old daughter. She claimed the company's advertising particularly giving TV ad viewers the idea that Nutella was part of a nutritious breakfast led to her erroneous perception.
But when she realized the spread is about as healthy as your average Snickers bar, she decided it was time to get even and get some money.


She won the case. but 2.5 million of the 3million she won will go to anyone who has bought to up to five jars of Nutella between Jan 1, 2008, and Feb 3, 2012 (or Aug. 1, 2009, and Jan. 23, 2012 in Hohenberg's home state). Plus, you don't even have to have a receipt to get reimbursed. All you have to do is fill out the claim form on their website.


It is not just ridiculous that the mother sued them, it is very ridiculous that the judge even heard the case or followed up with it! Haba! That case should have been thrown out! It's like suing a gun store for getting shot or  suing a knife company for cutting yourself or suing a Q-Tip company for busting your own ear. It's just ridiculous!!

The jar tells you how many calories, carbs etc on the label, why didn't she flipping read it!! SMH at some people's level of ignorance!

Plus, the comercial clearly states it's part of a healthy breakfast (with banana et al), it does not say it's a healthy breakfast. When are people going to take responsibility for their actions instead of blaming every one else??
Watch the commercial below


Sometimes...you just cant fix stupid!

It's like suing a blender company for cutting your hand when you were wondering how good the blades were at cutting flesh.
