Things I Love Thursday: Nutella

I first found out about Nutella when I was in college. There was a little shop in the college mall that made crepes, and they used Nutella in them. It was just utterly divine. At that point in life, I had no clue that you could buy Nutella at a grocery store. When I found it during spring break at a Safeway, I think my heart stopped or something ridiculous like that.

For the uninitiated, Nutella is a hazelnut chocolate spread, and it shames peanut butter. You can put it on literally ANYTHING. I put it on my waffles, pancakes, bagels...I even use it as a dip for biscuits. And we'll just pretend that I don't sit around and just stick my finger in the jar and lick it. Sometimes I even bake with it. Why bother melting chocolate chips and all that mess when you've got Nutella?

If you've never tried it, you are doing yourself a HUGE disfavor. So go out and find yourself a jar of Nutella. It's heaven on earth, in chocolate form...and it just doesn't get better than that.

Oh my goodness! I've always wanted to try Nutella, but wondered how good it was, and didn't want to wase my money. You've totally sold me on it! I'm going to try it, ASAP! Thanks! :)

I had to read this at 8 in the morning?! Now I want chocolate. I know it's too early for a "drink," but is it ever too early for chocolate? I don't think so!

Thanks for reminding me! I love it on saltine crackers. Sweet and salty, yum.

I've never tried it either. But I'm thinking maybe I should!

I love Nutella. My husband introduced me and I've never looked back.

I am ashamed to admit that I finished off a whole jar by myself in less than 2 days. I just ate it with a spoon everytime I went into the kitchen.....that stuff is like Heaven.

Soooo yummy. My hubby is allergic and I am so sad for him. But more for me.
