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 :)
