Love Nutella. When I was in college I was able to eat an entire jar in a day with no ill effects. How I long for my mid-eighties metabolism, especially since Costco carries it. It used to be expensive way back then. IIRC, it had A LOT of tropical oils in it. I hope that's changed

I loooove Nutella. Love it best with peanut butter on a sandwich cookie, actually.

And IIR, it's all natural and trans-fat free (at least the European version is). It was invented in Italy in the 40s (I think), when chocolate was scarce and hazelnuts were plentiful.

Careful, r16: the European Nutella recipe is different than the American one, or at least it used to be.

I assume that the US version is locally produced, and uses cheaper US products. It probably uses HFCS too...

I like it but I was irked by those ads they released in the US trying to advertise their spread as a healthy snack alternative. Nutella is not health food.

r30. The listed word is 'pflanzliches Fett' which I personally would have translated as 'plant based fat', but the online dictionary gave 'vegetable fat' as the right translation. I apologize for the confusion.

Wonderful on Graham crackers -- even better on shortbread cookies like Lorna Doones. Where was this stuff during the munchies of 1966?

And I recently saw a suggestion for using half Nutella & half peanut butter in standard peanut butter cookies, which I plan to try soon.

Divine stuff. I always get it at Costco so I'll be sure to have plenty on hand, but then I store it on an out-of-the-way shelf so that I can't easily get at it.

Nutella stopped using hydrogenated oil a couple of years ago. That's why I never bought it; I'm a label-reader.

It's still mostly sugar and fat, then hazelnuts, cocoa and crap like non-fat milk solids, soy lecithin and vanillin (instead of real vanilla).

Thanks but no thanks. I make my own because it tastes better and I can control what's in it.

But I cannot have it in the house. Visions of myself as Goldie Hawn in her fatsuit in Death Becomes Her, scooping out and scarfing down great quantities of chocolate frosting...


Had never really felt that strongly about it till vacationing in Rome a couple of years ago. Corner coffee shop at breakfast time had the nest pain au chocolat/chocolate croissants I'd ever had - heavenly, buttery pastry! - and filled with nutella! OMG!!!

Then when i got home, next took a local beac vacation, and a pizza place there had dessert calzone - which I wasn't interested in - but the owner persuaded me to try - for it's 'secret ingredient' - which of course, turned out to be nutella - and it was crazy good!

But sooooo bad for you! Must. Stop. Thinking. About. It.

Europeans dont seem to consider food ingedients the same way as the rest of us. Had a couple of instances of being told that something patently wicked - like Italian hot chocolate (the stuff is like rocket fuel and so thick you can stand a spoon in it!) - and some Danish berry-based dessert thing (sugar, sugar, sugar - some arrowroot - and more sugar) - were 'really good for you' because they were 'full of minerals' - !!! WTF? Delusional.

by Anonymousreply 5204/21/2012

Thanks, R31. If it's a plant based fat as you initially translated then it could be palm oil. I'm going to check jars at a couple of specialty/import grocery stores here to see if it's specified.

Nutella breakfast bump. This discussion is NOT played out.

by Anonymousreply 6904/25/2012

Take a tube of crescent rolls & separate the dough into 8 triangles -- slit each triangle in half lengthwise, so you have 16 little triangles.

Spread Nutella lightly over each little triangle.

Sprinkle finely ground pecans over the Nutella & lightly press down.

Roll each little triangle up from the wide end (not too tightly, not too loosely) & curve each roll slightly into a crescent.

Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper, 2" apart.

Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, til light brown.

Cool slightly on racks & serve warm (but not hot) -- or cool completely, store covered, & serve at room temperature.

[bold] Nutella to Pay Up After Lawsuit Questions Nutritional Value [/bold]

SAN DIEGO (KTLA) -- Italian confectioner Ferrero, maker of Nutella, must pay out over $3 million to consumers as part of the settlement of a class-action lawsuit that claims the nutty spread has little nutritional value.

The lawsuit was filed last year by San Diego mother Athena Hohenberg, alleging that Nutella was being marketed as something "healthier than it actually is," according to court documents.

Ads for the treat promote it as part of a "tasty yet balanced breakfast" when combined with milk, orange juice and whole wheat bread.

The main ingredients list sugar, palm oil, cocoa, hazelnuts and skimmed milk and it packs in 200 calories and 11 grams of fat per 2 tablespoons.

Ferrero issued a statement Sunday saying it stands by its product and its decision to settle the lawsuit is in the "best interest of the company."

The company has also agreed to change its marketing campaign and will give more space on the jar for its nutrition label.

Consumers who purchased Nutella in California or any other state between January 2008 and Feb. 3 are entitled to receive a refund, up to $4.

by Anonymousreply 8604/29/2012

The lawsuit is idiotic. Neither the label nor the TV ad says that Nutella is "healthy" or even "nutritious" -- the label clearly states the amount of calories, fat, & sugar -- the TV ad just says (twice) that kids love the way it tastes. If the plaintiff interpreted that info to mean "healthy", she's too stupid to be allowed to raise a child.

How did she & the class action lawyer happen to meet, anyhow?

The mother who filed the suit is stupid, but that's no excuse for Nutella's deceptive ads. "The dumb cunt should have realized that the ad is full of shit and should have read the label" isn't exactly a strong argument on the company's behalf. Can you imagine Snickers or Three Musketeers trying to advertise their candy bars as an ideal breakfast food for kids? Because that's basically what Nutella was trying to do.

by Anonymousreply 9404/29/2012

But Snickers does advertise itself as a hearty meal replacement. And Cocoa Puffs and Lucky Charms advertise themselves as part of a healthy breakfast too. So does Pop Tarts and those are sweeter and worse for you than Nutella. Should they all be sued too? If I bring the suit, would I get $1.5 million to share between myself and my lawyers?
