No butter? That's not breakfast!

No butter? That’s not breakfast!

Just as Public Health England is eager to allocate calorie limits on meals, the German Government has decided that it is their role to define what consists a good breakfast.

What didn’t make the breakfast cut?

Well, a cup of coffee paired with a slice of plain toast. Yes, bread and coffee, what are we, animals?

At the same time Germany grapples with breakfast, France has been dealing with Nutella riots, leaving the French Government to consider regulating the cost of the spread.

A taxation court in Münster ruled that a company could not say they were providing their employees with a free breakfast, if all they were offering was just bread and a warm beverage.

Scandal!

The court declared that if any company wanted to make claims based on free provision of a morning meal, some type of topping would need to be included in the form of butter, jelly, cheese or cold cuts.

Side note: The Münster Court did not advocate that the cheese be Muenster, as Muenster is actually an American cheese.

Despite the recent German crime sprees surrounding the spread, the need for Nutella was not specifically mentioned in reports.

Just sayin’.
