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.
So I've just read we should pronounce #Nutella as 'New-tell-uh' & we've been saying it wrong all along! This is why I have trust issues!

Nutella are wrong! The makers claim it's pronounced 'new-tell-uh'. It has nuts. Even though they make it, they are defo wrong! — Adam Weighell (@Juiceadamw) September 21, 2015

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.
