What The Heck is Nutella?


I asked the same question when I first heard of the stuff. It's actually a spread made out of hazelnuts, cocoa and milk. It's a product of Canada but is distributed through New Jersey. The jar says you can use it on breads, bagels, english muffins, croissants, etc. I've never used it on any of those foods yet. I either eat it out of the jar, or put it in something sweet. It's has a high fat/calorie content- two tablespoons equals 190 calories and 11 grams of fat. But oh so worth it!

Thanks for the explanation. Apparently not a southern food yet!

Oh my, we'll have to change that! Being raised in the South myself, I know Nutella would fit perfectly into the southern diet :)

Actually, I visited a Ukrops in Roanoke for the first time Sunday evening and I found a jar of this stuff. It is fantastic. So it's here in the south, just not in every store. That's the first time I'd seen it anywhere.

I'm glad you were able to find it. It's pretty addicting, so I hope it becomes easier for you to find. I just can't believe the South was not the first place to embrace the stuff!
