NEW YORK: Nutella fans are angry as their favourite chocolate-and-hazelnut spread now has a new recipe.

A German consumer group first noticed the change, revealing on their Facebook page that Nutella now contains 8.7 per cent powdered skimmed milk, compared to 7.5 per cent before. 

The amount of sugar also increased, according to the Hamburg Consumer Protection Center.

The product change, however, has sparked uproar among fans on social media.

“How n why will they change #Nutella.. why why why??,” wrote Bollywood star Esha Gupta.

The recipe change was confirmed, on Wednesday, by Nutella USA in tweets trying to sooth the annoyed fans.

“Our recipe underwent a fine-tuning and continues to deliver the Nutella fans know and love with high quality ingredients,” the company said in a tweet.
