Your whole life may have just been a lie.

Nutella has finally broken its silence on what may be the biggest question ever to have plagued chocoholics.

"Nutella (pronounced 'new-tell-uh') is a tasty, unique spread made from the combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa. Nutella has no artificial colors or preservatives," claimed the world's favorite hazelnut spread in the Frequently Asked Questions section of their U.S. website.

Many, who could not concede to the great revelation, took to Twitter to express their sentiments.

On the contrary, there were those who felt vindicated by the announcement by Nutella U.S. They likewise went on Twitter to celebrate their newfound upper hand.

Patrick Smith of Buzzfeed took one for the team and further clarified the matter with Nutella.

"Can you please confirm: what is the correct pronunciation? Is 'Newtella' simply the US version? Or is the company keen to encourage a unified global pronunciation? We've been saying Nutella all our lives. Is this wrong? Many thanks, Patrick" he inquired.

Nutella's explanation may have just saved humanity from the next World War III.

"Ferrero aren't trying to encourage a common worldwide pronunciation on this. In the UK we call it and pronounce it 'Nutella' as do consumers. The US pronunciation is just for them," says Nutella

Nutella fans can now rest assured that there is no exact way of pronouncing their favorite spread. They can eat it, say it any way they prefer.

At the end of the day, the Internet has, yet again, brought us back to one of the most basic lessons of life: it's what's on the inside that truly counts.
