I get it, people really love Nutella, however a couple in France loved it so much, they wanted to name their daughter after the chocolate-hazelnut spread. A judge decided that it would be in the best interest of the child that the name be changed. As the French Court stated: “The name ‘Nutella’ given to the child is the trade name of a spread. And it is contrary to the child’s interest to be wearing a name like that.”
The judge, charged with making difficult decisions, came to a compromise and the little baby was named Ella.

The university highlighted that students were going through 100lbs of the chocolate/hazelnut spread a week, costing dining $5,000 per week. I guess the students felt entitled, especially with meal plans at the time costing students $2,363 per semester.
