One can think Nutella is disgusting without being "anti-Nutella." I do not begrudge anyone their Nutella. While I do not completely understand Nutella's prominent position in the vast ensemble of world cuisine, I accept it and simply choose to not partake.

There are a few foods, though, that I think represent the presence of evil in our world. Sweet potatoes. Broccoli. Cauliflower. Tofu. A few others. I'm not saying that we should right now go to war against these foods, or perhaps round up the people who eat them and assemble them into some sort of re-education camps. But someday.

Nutella is disgusting. I do not understand its appeal.

I love that shiat, but I can't have it in my house any more than a crack addict can just put some crack away in the cabinet for later. My last jar was given to me for Christmas by my girlfriend who knew full well she wasn't going to get any.

I don't find it disgusting, I certainly don't prefer the taste of it but I can tolerate it if need be.

I, too, do not understand the cult following it has

Nutella is a disgusting abomination and must be stopped.
 
2014-05-23 09:50:49 AM  
I've never tried it so I can't weigh in on this. But it sounds like I would probably be let down because of all the hype surrounding it.

So, those with a hazelnut allergy have a sad existence?

/getting a kick....

It does, however, benefit from the "I had this in Europe" bias (along with over-roasted Italian coffee, tasteless French baguettes, and douche-y Spanish boyfriends). Slap a child-friendly label with a turtle-in-sunglasses mascot on the jar and we wouldn't be having this discussion.

I like this DeSimon fellow.

And I think Nutella is OK.  I never buy it myself, but I don't turn my nose up at it.
 
2014-05-23 10:50:25 AM  
Nutella is good. It's chocolate and hazelnuts, a flavor combination I find delightful. I'm not obsessed with it, though.
 
2014-05-23 10:56:33 AM  
I like it, but I don't eat it. It has more Palm oil than hazelnuts.

Yuk! Palm oil is not something you should be eating regularly.
 
2014-05-23 10:58:02 AM  
I think it's vulgar....like eating marshmallow creme right out of the jar.
 
2014-05-23 10:58:12 AM  
I think a lot of its popularity has to do with the perception that because it originated in Europe it is cultured and somehow refined.

Sort of the same reason people think Downton Abbey is a good show.
/yea that is a blatant troll. but the show still sucks.
 
2014-05-23 10:59:10 AM  
I have tried it a few times giving it the benefit of the doubt. Sucks everytime. However my kid loves it.

If you are a true A-murkin, you are raised on buttered toast. Chocolate toast is not democratic. It is sugar and palm oil, and us U.S.ers only eat potato chips and Hershey bars. Stop being a foreigner.

According to that ingredients list, it's nutty tasting chocolate syrup?

/never had it

People like it because it allows them to pretend they're not eating something that has the nutritional value of cake icing.

That shiat turns me into a blabbering idiot (moreso than usual, mind you). Freaking heaven.
 
2014-05-23 11:10:24 AM  
Has anyone tried to make their own Nutella? It seems like it could be rather simple. I wonder if I can get my hands on a bag of unsalted hazelnuts & experiment.
 
2014-05-23 11:11:51 AM  
I like chocolate. I like hazelnuts. I even like chocolate-covered hazelnuts. But Nutella? I'll pass.

Nutella is delicious. I have no more than two tablespoons. I dip strawberries, dried apricots and even pretzels in it.
 
2014-05-23 11:14:15 AM  
Nutella is gross. Didn't they lose a court case awhile back for claiming their brown palm oil was somehow healthy?

/I eat unhealthy stuff too. IDGAF what anyone chooses to eat, as long as it's not me.

"I hate this because it comes from the continent of Europe. Although I know its Italian, I'm also don't really understand the concept of countries because I'm American".

Nutella isn't very healthy though, and I don't get why you'd not buy a non-brand version of it.
 
2014-05-23 11:18:38 AM  
Nutella, Marmite, Fray Bentos, Twinkies...

We all have our peculiarly disgusting yet captivating bits of national cuisine.
 
2014-05-23 11:20:00 AM  
Tried it, liked it. Too many carbs per serving. I'm already going to die early (diabetes.) That shiat would really hasten the day.

Google DIY Nutella and you'll probably find a few recipes.

I cannot eat that stuff straight up, but it's pretty good for baking. Made some thumbprint cookies and they came out rather nifty.
 
2014-05-23 11:23:34 AM  
Nutella is not just a chocolate orgasm, it's culture.  They make it in Europe somewhere.  The Louvre is in Europe.  Eating Nutella is like visiting the Lourve, except instead of looking at it, you eat it.
 
2014-05-23 11:23:42 AM  
nutella is disgusting, but it just wouldn't be an evening of crying and rocking back and forth naked in the closet without choking it down by the handful, my tears blending with the gross chocolate stuff smeared all over my face. i always keep some around for parties.
 
2014-05-23 11:25:48 AM  
I stay away from it because of the whole palm oil/deforestation/poor orangutans issue. From what I understand, they're trying to address that so maybe I'll give it a try if/when that happens.


/not a treehugger... honest!
//guy at Philly Zoo was talking about palm oil and endangering orangutans habitat and I felt badly :(

Why can't you just accept that people aren't going to like everything that you like, much less in the same way that you like it, and discover that all this means is more Nutella for you?
 
2014-05-23 11:29:21 AM  
My wife and kids love this shiat. I, however find it tastes like burnt, bitter hazelnuts mixed with unsweetend cocoa powder.

It's not KoogleTM, but it will do.

HOMEMADE NUTELLA RECIPE
Hands-On Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes, not including time for cooling |
Makes about 2 cups
INGREDIENTS
1 cup hazelnuts
12 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons mild vegetable oil, such as canola
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon salt, more or less depending upon your preference
DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C).
2. Spread the hazelnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven for
about 12 minutes, until they've browned a little and the skins are blistered a little. Wrap
them in a kitchen towel and rub vigorously to remove as much loose skin as possible.
(Some skin will cling to the nuts when you're done. It's okay-not to mention inevitable.)
Let cool completely.
3. Melt the chocolate in a saucepan over gently simmering water or in the microwave. Stir
until smooth. Let cool completely.
4. In a food processor, grind the hazelnuts until they form a paste. Add the oil, sugar,
cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt and continue processing until the mixture is as smooth as
possible-or as smooth as you like. Add the melted chocolate, blend well, and then strain
the mixture to remove any chunks of hazelnut that remain. The resulting homemade
Nutella will be thin and somewhat runny and maybe even a little warm but it will thicken
as it cools. Scrape your homemade Nutella into a jar or other resealable container and let
it cool to room temperature. Cover the container after snitching several spoonfuls. The
Nutella will keep on the counter for up to 2 weeks.

nutella + bacon = heaven.

a lot of you are ridiculous.  nutella is the greatest thing on earth. not our fault americans only recently discovered it and can't handle the fact that american choclate is almost exclusively dog shiat.

they even ruined the kitkat.  wtf?  why is it that Hershey can make a kitkat taste like garbage whereas Nestle makes it delicious everywhere else in the known universe?

/I'm kidding around...kind of
//my american wife doesn't understand nutella either

The people who think like this make me laugh. Like that lady who ended up on Fark sometime last year because she was upset that Nutella was not the sole ingredient in her nutritious breakfast. Hell, the suggestion on the Nutella label itself shows a single slice of bread with a thin layer, a glass of milk, a glass of fruit juice, and three pieces of fruit. Stupid lady.

Because I'm allergic to hazelnuts, asswriter?
