Don't fuck with my Nutella

Hazelnuts are one of my absolute favorite foods, and Nutella plus just about anything guarantees a trip straight into my mouth*.  And I know I'm not the only one who feels this way about Nutella.  So why the hell the EU would even begin to consider that doing anything to stop anyone from learning about and inevitably embracing Nutella's creamy, nutty, chocolatey goodness will result in anything other than civil war is a mystery to me.  At least one EU politician has a lick of common sense:

Giancarlo Galan, Italy’s agriculture and food minister, dismissed the proposal as “nonsense” and wrote a tough-worded letter to Brussels asking for a softer approach. “Sometimes, the strict application of rules … reveals their stupidity,” he told reporters

*yes, I know I'm leaving myself open for the obscene jokes.  Let's just say that Nutella is smooth and creamy but doesn't drip all over the place and leave it at that.
