Last night, I was minding my own business...casually surfing the web, possibly, maybe, perhaps, but I'll never tell for sure, looking for a giant tub of Nutella.

As visions of Nutella (with sparkly pink heart bubbles floating around it) danced in my head, I stumbled upon a site. (Say that..."a site"...with the most disgust and disdain you can possibly muster.)
A site that suggested that Nutella was not pronounced "NUH-tella" but, actually, "NEW-tella".
What does this all mean? What is this world coming to?
I cried. And prayed. Then cried some more...and took it to Twitter. I had to know...was I the only one living in the dark?
Dear Nutella Dudes: I realize you're from Italy, or Germany, or, you know, one of those countries over there...but c'mon! I just spend the best part of my adult life calling your product "NUH-tella"...and think about it! It only makes sense!!It is made with "NUTS". Not "NEWTS".The least you could've done, oh dear and lovely Nutella dudes, was put a little umlaut or a cute little line or something above that 'u'! Anything to give this "midwestern to the core" girl a hint that even tho this delicious little treat was made with NUTS it wasn't prounced that way!Throw me a bone here!
This is just...I just can't...well...I can't wrap my head around it.
It's just so wrong. (Don't even tell me that it's right...'cuz I'll still think it's wrong.)
NUH-tella. It's the only way I can say it!
