Um.. do you have a source for the liking of this perticular product? I personally hate the stuff. ;) -Nidonocu - talk Nidonocu 15:47, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I have no clue. The anon who wrote the article probably won't be coming back, but... whatever, it's not like it's bringing down the wiki's high standard of quality or anything. --Xaxtiny.png? 16:01, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I like the stuff in moderation, for what it's worth. Not enough to actually, you know, buy some of it, though :-) --Duncan da Husky 16:22, 18 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Holy... that was scary! I was just eating toast with Nutella when I came across this article. (Not kidding. Then I read the "popular among furs" line and did a double take.) --Scani 13:33, 1 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Actually, Smrgol has a habit of donating at least six jars of Nutella to the Charity Auction whenever he attends furry conventions :-) --Duncan da Husky 13:39, 1 Nov 2005 (UTC)
There are some competing, indistinguishable products with the advantage of having a cute squirrel on the label. I don't regularly eat the stuff - too sweet .... Ferrero is Italian and infamous for bad advertisement. Unci 23:32, 9 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Appropriateness[edit]

I wonder if an article about food, especially a specific brand, is really needed in an encyclopaedia about furries. I mean, it may be possible that many furries like it, but I'm also sure many furries like Nestle ice cream, Burger King and McDonalds Hamburgers and stuff. As for the hamburgers I think there have also been some furry "flashmobs" at McDs restaurants. So I'd like to know your opinion, is an article about a specific food, which is itself not related to furry, not having a furry mascot, slogan or whatever, really appropriate? If this discussion has ever been opened somewhere else or if too many people actually think this is important, go ahead and remove that tag again, but in my opinion this article seems "wrong" here.

I'm inclined to agree - this article's link to the furry fandom seems a bit tenuous.--Higgs Raccoon 17:38, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
My view is that it's worth keeping if there's history that justifies it. While it may not have great significance nowadays, prior interest has resulted in traditions that affect the furry fandom today. This is in contrast to "tea", where there really wasn't any significant discussion of why it had relevance, now or in the past. Perhaps we need a furry cuisine page or the equivalent, to which this kind of thing could be merged and redirected, but we'd need some restriction on referencing to avoid every food being labelled "furry" just because a few furs like it. --GreenReaper(talk) 15:38, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Article update #1 (April 17 2009)[edit]

Updating the entry's appropriateness status. Keep or delete?. Vote on Keep. Well known mainstream food product that is now part of furry lore - Spirou 03:06, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

No problem with Keep. Furry relevance is given. --Rat 05:25, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Move to remove appropriate tag. Enough consensus from Sysops and editors of relevance of article - Spirou 05:38, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
