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.

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?

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)

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.

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.

Gig103: Why would I buy imitation Nutella when I can get real Nutella? This seems pointless.


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
 
2014-01-16 06:57:42 AM  

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.

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.

I never got that.  I think it makes already dry multigrain toast drier and tackier.  I need a full cup of coffee to choke down one slice.  Only thing I can find that makes multigrain/whole wheat toast pallatable is a healthy bit of butter.  Enough to melt in and soften things up a bit so you don't wind up trying to swallow a sandpaper throat grenade.

As a fellow European (who has lived in American over half his life now)... I agree.

You do kind of get used to Hershey over time but it never replaces real chocolate.

That said, you can't trust Cadburys in America either. The stuff they sell in America tastes almost as bad as Hershey; you have to buy Cadburys from import stores to get the real thing. American Cadburys tastes as bad as Hersheys to me.

Regarding Marmite... you either love it or hate it (as the saying goes) but it is no way comparable to Nutella. If you spread it on your toast expecting chocolate you will be sorely disappointed.

It is better than Vegemite (they're not quite the same)... so don't assume you hate it if you hate Vegemite.

Never trust anyone who says they're unsure about marmite... they're lying and should not be trusted.

Nutella is only slightly less disgusting than Hershey's forms of "chocolate" - both are over-processed chemistry experiments of taste and texture substitution for the sake of profit and long storage stability. Just go get some decent chocolate (Lindt is my easily-obtained fave), pop in the nuker for a few seconds, spread on English Muffin - Ta da! Add ground hazelnuts or a touch of hazelnut oil if you want the complete experience.

From what I understand...nt sure if true or myth... think true...
Hersheys (and many US chocalatiers) started out operations making chocholate with spoiled milk because it was cheaper. More sugar was added to counteract that.

Spoiled milk isn't used any more... but the chocolate is given a souring ingredient because that is what the population came to expect choc to taste like.

The milk chocolate is the worst because of butyric acid, commonly found in vomit. Yummy. Also, that's where the sourness comes from.

[i.dailymail.co.uk image 634x632]


because nutella is expensive, and my 13 year old daughter will just devour it all in a short span of time anyway.

there are store brands popping up that are a good bit cheaper, and taste almost identical...especially aldi's brand, but i don't think they always have it in stock.

my parents sent 2 jars of an off brand home with us from our christmas visit...i ate some, and it was pretty close to nutella...the rest went to my daughter.

i got hooked on nutella while stationed in germany (1998-2002, and 3 months of 2004). when the euro came out, they had a special edition extra large jar and the lid was gold colored and looked like a euro dollar coin. that jar actually lasted a week or more! didn't help that the hole was large enough to fit my hand and easily dip ritz crackers in it (amazing combo, by the way), and it's great on toasted bagels, pancakes/waffles, etc
 
2014-01-16 12:17:10 PM  
Hershey's... Ah, yes... That company that USED TO make chocolate, but lobbied to have the designation of milk chocolate changed to include recipes that didn't have milk, cocoa butter, and sugar so they could switch their recipe to "mockolate" which isn't half as good as real chocolate.

If you can get chocolate produced by a country outside of America, you'll probably be happier. Hershey's mockolate is just chocolate-flavored candy now.

If you want something that tastes like Hazelnuts, fiskobirlik fındık ezmesi (may not be easy to find in most U.S. locales, however)

drxym: 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.


You can get it quickly and cheaply when you're PMSing.

/That is really the only reason I ever even taste it
//It is shiatty chocolate

C18H27NO3: 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?
/Stick in the mud.


How can someone not get punched when they talk like that marketer?

Most Americans have dead taste buds. They like the Olive Garden, after all. And they like things that are extremely sweet, Hershey's "chocolate" syrup just tastes like syrup, not chocolate and people will go on and on about how much they love it.. If you come to the U.S., don't order hot chocolate. It's hot and sweet but it doesn't taste anything like chocolate.

Coastalgrl: 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.

Their cocoa powder isn't that good. I make chocolate spiced nuts at Christmas. I usually use Ghirardelli cocoa powder but I was out and used some Hershey's. They weren't half as good. The store was out of Ghirardelli, so I sprang for Guittard. Oh my god, those nuts were on a higher plane of deliciousnouss. I considered just making the coating as candy and skipping the nuts. I'll never go back, it's worth every penny.

Try the high-fat Guittard cocoa powder.

I LOVE the Guittard. I use it exclusively now. They rare red dutch process makes amazing chocolate cake.

Nobody's mentioned the Trader Joe's nutella knock-off that's made with almonds instead of hazelnut? Although I am a choc/haz fiend, I prefer the TJ because it's got more chocolate and the texture is creamy instead of gummy.

Nutella is one of those things that is excellent on EVERYTHING!

Crackers, cookies, bread, steak, cereal, meatloaf, salad, nipples, genitalia...

What's odd is that Guittard chocolate chips are cheaper than both Ghirardeli or Hershey's. I keep a bag of their 63% chips on hand for chocolate snacking needs.
