For the uninitiated, Nutella is the brand name for a cocoa-enhanced hazelnut spread. It is absolutely delicious and if you like chocolate or hazelnut, run to your nearest grocer and buy a jar. I have splurged on other, fancier brands and they were all slightly different- some are thinner than others, and have a stronger hazelnut flavor. They are all excellent, so try with abandon. If you have a tendency to read the calorie content on labels, consider this before deciding that Nutella is “bad”: Like peanut butter, hazelnut spread is filling, and also like peanut butter, is enhanced with added sugar but can be purchased in lower sugar varieties.
