Nutella: any more nutritional value than cans of grocery store icing?

--==∞==--

I've been puttering this morning with Amazon's Cloud Services. It seems to be one of those simple tasks that spread into a web of to-dos. Ah, i can't simply do what i want with CNAMEs, i'll have to use Amazons DNS service Route 53. Ah, i should use the multifactor security: let me download the app. Ah, i'm going to need their particular barcode scanner because i won't be able to type in the manual string precisely.... and so it goes.

Ugh, i've forgotten how long the TTL (time to live) on name servers could be. I have no idea how long the TTL is on previous DNS host; it's 48 hours at Amazon. Ah! But until it propagates the mail records from the old server will continue to route mail. *whew*

Well, Sometime early next week Google will crawl the new "underconstruction" stub.

In Career Counselor news, i spoke with "Mikey" last night. I think there are some very specific ways he could help me at a later date, so i'm glad i chatted with him. If i was to bail from the Whale asap, i think he could help me make a rapid transition. I think i first want to do the deeper discernment process with the Purpose Clarity Coach. And given she's much less expensive than the original coach, all is good.

... and i forgot to post before getting working today. However, my DNS nameserver change seems to have succeeded pretty quickly and my website has a minimal greeting up now: http://wheresitup.com/results/51159de4d33116994f0001a2

Quick google turns up this: Nutrition Imposter: Nutella.

Eek! Look at that sugar content!

For reference, Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge Creamy Homestyle frosting.

So. You get more calories with Nutella (and more fat), but also more protein. Though I wouldn't say that 3g of protein is all that much.

I hadn't seen the referenced advertisement, but i had definitely framed nutella as "peanut butter, except with hazelnuts and some added chocolate." That is, until i read the ingredients: good grief. I wonder if once upon a time it was more of a nut butter, and they've just replaced hazelnuts with the oil and sugar as margins were stretched.

I had more wondered if anyone would defend it, than do research, but that is a nice site. I have read the labels well enough to know that if i'm picking up a can of frosting to indulge my sweet tooth, the whipped frosting has much more air in it.

I suppose nutella is off your menu for multiple reasons.

Some weeks ago I moved one of my music folders into Google's Play Music.
I liked that a nice small collection loaded up with google over several days' time, and that now I can listen to thousands of songs just by logging into my google account from my browser. Oddly,though, a goodish number did not load--probably netlabel works in which the tagging was imperfect, but it may be an imperfection on google's end. I could not imagine how to "fix" it, except maybe I'd watch youtube to see if a 13 year old can set me straight :)
