Look, Chrissy Teigen is not one to shy away from controversy. On social media, she's widely known to take down trolls, provoke vegetarians — and even offer her husband's underthings in a mysterious trade. But her latest comments may be among the most frenzy-inducing of the lot, because they take issue with one of the world's most beloved foods: Nutella.
As part of promotion for her new cookbook, Cravings: Hungry For More (related to which even managed to stir up some controversy before it even came out), she gave a recent interview to First We Feast (clip below).
In it, she was asked about her past stance on Nutella — having already voiced plainly (on Twitter, that is) that she found the hazelnut spread to be both "stupid" and, well frankly... just plain "s***."
Oh yes, she went on, back in 2014, calling the following things better than Nutella: "dried squid in Asian movie theaters," "Bush's baked beans," and"leaving a chocolate bar in a hot car."
Back then, she referred to herself as one of the few people willing to call it like it is — one of the few (only?), proud, "#NUTELLATRUTHERS."
So, the First We Feast wanted to know: Would she change her stance now, having had a few years to cool off on the matter? Oh, hell no. Chrissy only doubled down.
She called Nutella the "mimosa of foods," in the way that it allows you to cover for a dubious habit: "You just want a drink in the morning."
Specifically, she wants to educate people who think Nutella is maybe? A health food? In the way you spread in on food in the morning? Like almond butter or something?
Guess what, that's fake news: "A lot of people think that hazelnut is good for them. No. You're just eating chocolate in the morning."
