They did something with it. It's still pretty good, but I think I taste too much sugar now and not enough cocoa, and also the color seems lighter. Same thing as with one of the largest Polish chocolate makers that got bought out by an American corporation that I can't remember the name of now, just to get into the specific market, but once they bought that company, they changed the original chocolate recipe exactly the same way... added sugar/removed cocoa to increase profit. I read a whole discussion on some chocolate lovers' forum where these guys would buy chocolate from all over the world and compare it. I actually went out on the web to see why the taste was so different in that chocolate and found my answer on that very forum. I mean, I was at one point able to eat an entire large bar of that thing in one sitting without getting the overwhelming sugary feeling, but once they changed the recipe, just a few squares and I was done. That's exactly what I get from majority of Amerian chocolate like Twix or 3 Musketeers, it's just bad chocolate. Light in color and loaded with sugar. Milk chocolate is supposed to have a rich brown color not light or whitish. Anything for profit in the U.S.. Anyway, I've been a fan of Nutella since I was a kid, but to be honest, I haven't been able to eat much of it lately.
