Nuts!

Ferreo, makers of the world famous hazelnut/chocolate spread Nutella, is taking an American company to court for making Nugtella.

Nugtella is also a brown paste containing hazelnuts. But, is also contains marihuana. Medical marihuana to be precise.

In California marihuana is only available if you have special license. Normally you can buy the marihuana for medical reasons.

Nugtella is more expensive than Nutella. One jar will run you about USD 25,-.

Where they have been ‘lawsuit happyin the past, Nutella’s claims now seem quite legit: not only is the name almost identical, the whole ‘look and feel’ of the packaging is clearly meant to appeal to the famous Nutella brand. Not to mention the association with (soft) drugs.
