Nutella-Gate Exposed: It's a Smear!
The mundane fact, according to the University's Division of Dining Services, is that the weekly cost of the Nutella supply is actually less than 10 percent of the amount originally reported on a student blog and quickly picked up by other media.
"I mean, who can resist a sweet story involving hazelnut spread?" asked Columbia's chief digital officer Sree Sreenivasan, a noted Nutella nut and social media maven. "I've already retweeted this thing in several time zones myself since I assumed it to be true just based on the Nutella consumption in my house." (Editor's note: Sree didn't say any of this... but he easily could have.)
