Contains nuts

Gianduja Chocolate

Unfortunately I took this photograph from too close a distance using my mobile phone and the quality is poor.  It shows a display of Gianduja chocolates in the local coffee house. These are

a sweet chocolate containing about 50% hazelnut and almond paste. The chocolate hazelnut gelato of the same name originates in Switzerland, as does Gianduia fondue. A related product from Ferrero is Nutella, which was originally called Pasta Gianduja.

What struck me was the wording on the sign advertising these chocolates for 25p each:

Gianduja chocolate: hazelnuts, chocolate. Contains nuts.

It makes you wonder. Essentially the message to customers with a nut allergy is stated twice, which means that they suspect that not all customers will get the clue in the last four letters of “hazelnuts”.
