Where have you been all my life?

I must have been living under a rock for the last 40 years because I have never tried Nutella. Can you believe it? We have a new Super Super Walmart (larger than a Super Walmart) and I decided to catch up on grocery shopping yesterday. It is a bad idea to go grocery shopping when you are hungry because you buy 10 times as much stuff as you really needed (and really blow the diet plan). I saw a display of Nutella and decided to try it. IT IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER EATEN!!!

How right you are! When I was on my honeymoon in Italy I discovered this and wish I hadn't. It takes great strength to stay away. I am so glad you have seen the light. :)

Once you've eaten Nutella, you'll never want anything on toast again! Seriously.

We have Nutella in the house at all times. My kids adore Nutella and peanut butter sammiches. Yum!

I love nutella!

Put it on waffles. Put it on vanilla cookies. Put it on toast. Put it on apples to be "healthy". OMG I just discovered it last year after going 25 years without it..you are not alone! :)

It is a fabulous product. I like it on toast (or a warm croissant) with sliced strawberries... HEAVEN!

I'm glad it sucked you in too! Have you tried it with bananas yet?

1- toast some bread
2- spread some peanut butter on
3- add a swirl of marshmallow fluff
4- top off with some nutella

you will die of happiness!

Go immediately to the food network website, and search for Giada's "hazelnut gelato", made with Nutella. To die for!

Brandi said...

I love Nutella!! It's great on bread to make chocolate sandwiches.Yummy. I think I may have to go buy some.

Family Life said...

I can't buy nutella, my Hubby would eat the whole jar in one sitting! LOL!

Mrs. Bismarck said...

i guess i am a weird-o, i don't like the stuff and i have tried it several times to give it another chance because people keep saying how great it is :(

Prissy Southern Prep said...

I have never tried it, but after reading your post and all of the comments it sounds like I need to! Or, maybe I don't need to! Is it high in calories?!

Deals, Steals and Heels said...

i make nutella cookies, witha recipe from giada on food network....AMAZING.

Melissa said...

I totally agree, it's amazing stuff!

Belle said...

It it is SO yummy and you can put it on pretty much everything!

~Holly~ said...

I have had Nutella but after reading all of this, I'm going to buy some right now!! :D

Marfa said...

I haven't had nutella in years, but I tell you this, I could eat it with a spoon right out of the jar. It is so finger-licking good!!!!!!!!!! But I have to be a good girl and stay on my diet, so no nutella for me :-(

TanyaLea said...

awhh, yes!..."Naughty Nutella" as we call it. No, it's not exactly the thing that diets are made of!...but it is an amazingly GREAT treat on almost anything from fruit to waffles...or my kids like it on pancakes, spread first with a little peanut butter, then swirl in some nutella and top with sliced bananas...YUMMM! :)

Rebecca Jill said...

I'm glad you found it. I first had it when I studied abroad in England in college in Fall 1994 and was excited when I could find it here in the U.S.

It's divine!

Hailey said...

OMG! I fell in love with it too!
Here is my post!

I'm must be missing out! I have no idea what Nutella is. Now I'm going to have to check it out. Sounds yummy!!!

Pili said...

Yes, Nutella is awesome!
You should try a sandwich of Fluff & Nutella, pure Heaven!

Though I have to say a different brand that it's even better is Nocilla, but that you can't find in the States.

Courtney said...

Well i must be under that same rock because I haven't tried it either. Maybe I should pick up some at my Super Walmart!

preppyinnewengland said...

This is divine. The chocolate/hazelnut taste on warm toast with some butter is scrumptious!
