Why would I buy imitation Nutella when I can get real Nutella? This seems pointless.

Especially when they have dibs on the best hazelnuts.

I've never had Nutella, maybe I should buy some.  And some Marmite, I've never had that either.

This just seems disgusting to me. I don't even spread Nutella very often, but it's not even a question I'd pick Nutella over Hershey's any day.

Does Hershey's actually make real chocolate anymore?  Maybe they should spend more time making real chocolate and not that nasty mockolate that isn't even fit to be sandwiched into a S'more anymore.

Skip the Marmite.

Nutella is hazelnuts that haven't spoiled due to oxidation yet because they're covered in chocolate, which is an excellent anti-oxidant*.

*Most people that don't like hazelnuts haven't had a hazelnut that hasn't become rancid through oxidation

There can be only one Nutella. But Hershey's chocolate/almond spread sounds pretty yummy. I might have to buy a few tubs just to be sure.

Mmm, more empty carbs - just what everyone needs.

Both are great on buttered toast, but spread the Marmite much MUCH thinner than the Nutella.

The average American snacks more than two times a day and what better way to transform everyday snacks into delicious treats, than with the genuine chocolate flavor?

Because eating chocolate snacks 2 or more times a day doesn't help with our problem of overweight Americans?

Just what America needs.. More fat options.

Hershey spreads huh? I think I'll wait for the squirt bottles.
 
2014-01-16 06:01:20 AM
If it's made from Hershey's chocolate is basically guaranteed to be disgusting.  Unless you like the mess of vegetable oil and cocoa powder they pass off as chocolate.  Which would only be the case if you had never had real chocolate.

Marcus Aurelius: *Most people that don't like hazelnuts haven't had a hazelnut that hasn't become rancid through oxidation

I love hazelnuts, but, I used to crack them open with my teeth growing up and I'm sure that's contributed to some of my adult dental problems (chipping or cracking molars).

// also crunched on ice with my molars, used my incisors as rudimentary scissors (to cut and strip wire, twine, zipties), canines to open soda bottles and beers, err, cracked open brazil nuts, the errant uncracked pistachio, almond husks (actually, used to eat almonds fresh from the tree down in the islands), uhhh, peeled and munched on sugar cane stalks, scraped the tasty meat from the inside of a coconut shell (not that dried crap you get in the store, fresh ones from trees where the goo inside is still jelly like).

They moved much of their production to Mexico because of cheap labor (and probably lax health and safety rules, just like any other corporation that cares more about its stockholders than its customers)

Great move. Make your food product in the land of Montezuma's Revenge.

As a European, I don't understand the popularity of Hershey's chocolate. It tastes really cheap and nasty, less like chocolate and more like chocolate "flavouring" cut with sugar and some kind of milk byproduct. Compared to other brands like Lindt, Milka, Ritter, Galaxy, Cadburys etc. it's simply foul. I'm not sure why I'd want a spreadable version.

Marmite (or vegemite) spread thinly on buttered toast is delicious with a cup of tea. The secret though is to spread it thinly. Slather it on and it tastes vile.

Nutella is tasty too though it's very high in sugar. Didn't Nutella get in trouble for implying it was good for kids? Anyway, in Europe at least it's not hard to find a supermarket brand hazlenut chocolate spread which is largely indistinguishable from the branded product but without the premium. Same goes for peanut butter spreads - not sure why anybody buys Sunkist or similar when unbranded peanut butters taste practically the same.

For RI Farkers:
The Nutella sold at Job Lot is made in Poland.
Maybe it's just my mind playing tricks on me but I swear it's better than the Canadian version we get at "regular" stores.
 
2014-01-16 06:52:10 AM
i'm just worried that while nutella is made with real chocolate, Hersheys may elect to make it as a  chocolately "confection" in a manner like Mars and m&Ms.

So much this.

No way Hershey's can ever compete. I tried finding a chocolate sauce by them and all I found was corn syrup laden crap so I made my own using their cocoa. Which seems to be the only product nowadays that isn't crap.

Don't remember if Nutella haa corn syrup but I thought the palm oil would serve its purposes fine on its own.

No coffee. Need toast with Nutella STAT

syrynxx: Mmm, more empty carbs - just what everyone needs.


Why does Nutellla have so much sugar anyway? It is pretty much candy in a spread form.

Plus, It has lots of partially hydrogenated palm oil (but low enough that it's below 0.5g per serving to put 0g on the trans fat column).

Why anyone would pay money for this garbage is beyond me. Plus, after you buy it you have to eat it. You'd have to pay me to eat that garbage.

Take one half of toasted english muffin and slathered it in peanut butter. The other half gets nutella. Reassemble and enjoy.

I remember the oral abortion that was the Jif spread last year.  If Hershey's is anything like that .... *shudders*.  I took one bite of the Jif , threw the container out and puked because of the flavor.

THIS.  When I was stationed in Germany, I could either get the nasty staple chocolate from the commissary on base or go off base to Real or Rewe and get the good shiat.  Ritter was one of my favorites.

One thing I found strange was that I could taste a difference in Nutella on base and off base.  At the commissary, they sold imported Nutella in the plastic jars.  At German grocers, they sold Nutella in the glass jars.  Even though both were sealed under the cap, the glass jar's Nutella just tasted so much better.  Maybe it was the trip in the boat for the plastic jar that made it taste a bit duller.

Hershey's chocolate used to be much better.

Both are just huge tubs of fat and sugar, made to go with more sugar (bread).

http://www.businessinsider.com/national-confectioners-association-2- mi llion-pr-budget-2013-4  because of this being used to ok standards being lowered to what is acceptable as chocolate.

I dislike nutella, I want pure chocolate, though Hershey's taste like crap as well. I think I'll go buy 50 nice chocolate bars, melt them down and eat the chocolatey goo that it becomes. Then no one will call me fat.

You don't need to use bread, you can spread it onto bacon, ice cream, brocolli, your significant other.
