The company that makes Nutella is requesting that the FDA re-classify it as a spread (1 TB standard serving/100 calories) rather than a dessert topping (2 TB standard serving/200 calories). Reason: that switch makes the nutrition facts panel look "better" -- less calories. Nevermind that few people know what a tablespoon looks like, and the photos of Nutella-topped foods certainly don't help. Some of those items seem to have 3-4 TB of Nutella slathered on top.
