'Nutella Tax' Could Raise Price Of Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread In France

“Anyone home? When governments have to pay more for heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, et al because certain citizens were gorging on Nutella, it makes sense to ask said citizens to help pay their way with a teensie tax on their tasty sin... don't you think?”

“Um, I think it's also about paying for the clogged arteries, heart attacks and diabetes that such unhealthy, empty-calorie foods create. Call it a sin tax if you will, but to me it's perfectly logical: why should I have to pay for your clogged arteries, because you gorged on 20% Palm oil Nutella? This makes all the more sense in a country with a (civilized) national health care system, where everyone literally IS paying for your clogged arteries.

That all being said, Nutella is one of the greatest pleasures on this earth! And for those who don't know it, think of it as peanut butter made with hazelnuts... and a hint of cocoa. YUM!!!”

“You are talking a slippery slope here with the "why should I have to pay" argument. next it will be total control of what every person can eat or hobbies that can be dangerous. What kind of "civilized" society will that become if there is no personal choice?”

“Neither palm oil nor saturated fat cause clogged arteries.”

“It's not what you eat (how much is still important), it's how much exercise you get. There are far worse foods in Europe, yet that continent is not nearly as fat as ours (the US). Prepackaging and processing and preservative-loaded foods are the problem. They might as well be indigestible in terms of the body's utility.”

“Maybe they need to reframe it as a "happy tax". It's one I'd gladly pay.”

“LOVE Peruvian food! My ex-boyfriend twice removed was from Lima, and he was also an amazing cook. I'm going to forward this post to him. When's the next flights?? ;-)”

“And when you do get there, stop at Acurio's La Mar Cebichería, for sure, but also the various seafood spots on the beaches!”
