No wonder. That stuff is like crack. I consider myself to have pretty good self control, but Nutella is one of the few consumables I simple cannot have in my house.

All I need to be happy is a jar of Nutella and a spoon.

To be fair, iPhones don't go nearly as well with toast.

I can't have that shiat in the house. I can't even gaze upon it in the grocery store. All the Nutella wants to be IN MAH BELLIE.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if there was crack in it. It's that addictive.

Aldi has had a store brand version for a while now. It's not bad, and if the label is accurate, Aldi's is slightly healthier.

Slightly.

They are paying ~$50,000/year to attend the school. That doesn't make stealing okay of course, but I do think Columbia can afford it. Not like they're stopping using metal forks because students are stealing them.

Jif Chocolate Silk. I have a "to go' tub of it in my desk drawer right next to my Nyquil, Dayquil, Quilquil, Codeine Cough Syrup and Child Silencer. As soon as I appropriate enough crackers from the cafeteria, I plan on giving it a try. Oops. Later for my hourly dose of Nyquil, Dayquil, Quilquil, Codeine Cough Syrup. Gotta keep the flu away and tolerate the co workers.

I can't have Nutella in the house, the marital discord it creates between myself and the husband is not worth it. He has a running tally of how many "Nutella & Go" thingers I owe him (because I buy two, one of each of us and then I eat his.) Its the only food that causes conflict in our home. I am ashamed that I eat his N&Gs but its not fair that he doesn't just eat them when he has the chance.

Theyre paying something like $2300.00 per semester(maybe year), to eat at the food courts on top on tuition.

I can't have it in the house either (and it is just me and the doggie in the household), but when I do my monthly grocery shopping trip, I treat myself to a N&G.  They are right there are the checkout line, so I can grab one on my way out and eat it in the car on the way home.  One N&G a month isn't a bad thing, especially when you get the coupons for $1.00 any Nutella and I can use the coupon on the $1.19 N&G.  But when I get that deal, I really feel the urge to stock up on the N&G, but I resist, lest I become too fat to wear heels to work.

I really want N&G right now.

Stupid N&G. I get my fix at Target. I only buy two at a time, fully intending to give poor skinny Mr. Unsympathetic his container and I always end up eating it the day after. One time, I thought, maybe I just need to buy each of us two, but I ate 3 of them.

Mr. Unsympathetic bought amazing looking strawberries. They're BEGGING to be filled with Nutella. We've successfully kept jars out of the house for over a year now.

If he runs 80 miles per week, he must clear across the country from you by now.

You'd think he could run and get his own Nutella & Go while he's at it... He always finds his way home though. His running has been limited by his school schedule, so instead he plays indoor soccer 2-3 times a week. I expect the running will pick up after school is out for the summer. Or maybe next quarter when he is taking an online elective class called "Intro to Dance." I bet N&G would be extra tasty at the ballet...

I had Nutella once. I expected it to be a hazelnut version of peanut butter. It tasted indistinguishable from chocolate frosting.

When I was young I only got Nutella when I was an exchange student in Germany. It may have been available in some supermarkets in the US back then, but my parents weren't going to buy it for us. It was considered a luxury, and not particularly healthy. I still think of it that way, and never buy it even though I love it.

It seems like kids today think they are entitled to...Hang on...I'm starting to understand the whole "Back in my day..." thing.

First time I had Nutella was HS French class... crusty baguette and jar of Nutella and I never looked back.
 
2013-03-07 02:20:04 PM  
So what I'm getting from this is that most Americans eat Nutella in large quantities at once, as if it's the main dish, rather than treating it like a thin spread you put on the main item (toast, etc.).

I keep a jar around. I spread a little on toast every once in a while. I couldn't even consider just dipping my finger or a spoon into the jar and eating it by itself. That's essentially what N&G is, right? A tiny cracker stick that you LOAD UP with Nutella, so really, you're just eating Nutella. The cracker stick is just an edible utensil.

If I want hazelnut and chocolate as a main course, I usually just get a chocolate, nut & fruit bar from Aldi. They're very good.

We switch back and forth between Nutella and Justin's Nut Butter (Choc Hazelnut version) at our house.  I adore Nutella but tend to eat it by the spoon instead of as a condiment.  Justin's is more like peanut butter - a little gritty, much saltier, and I don't ever eat it by itself.  It's heavenly on toast with a sliced banana, though.

So, does Kroger.  We usually go generic, but I haven't tried either so I can't say how it compares.  Wife and kids love it.
