Please don't make these. I can't have Nutella around as it is.

Oh, so it's just speculation based on a possible acquisition.
I'm not big on Nutella, but I was going to tease my kid.

Ferrero is going to buy up every candy manufacturer in the world.

There can be only one.

And *way* too over-sugared. True chocolate needs that bitterness from the cocoa to really taste good.

I have just fixed your chocolate-buying habits. It's a "what has been seen cannot be unseen" thing.

I saw those today at the store - I was tempted to get the hazelnut ones, but the cinnamon ones made me kind of recoil. Red Hots and Chocolate don't sound like a great combo to me. But - hey, to each their own.

I adore hazelnuts, but only right out of the shell. Something happens to them when added to chocolate or in that Frangelico liqueur. So disappointing!

Chocolate with cinnamon combo needs only a LITTLE BIT of cinnamon. Not a freakin blowtorch, as with the red-hots.

The license to make and sell Kit Kat branded candy in the US is held by Hershey. You won't get the good flavors in the US

I have never eaten Nutella. A few years ago I compared the nutrition labels for Nutella and peanut butter, I determined that peanut butter had a slight edge over Nutella, so I never bought any.

Cronuts are amazing, the problem is that regular donuts are also amazing so the increase in quality isn't very much. The first time I had a cronut I hadn't had a donut in like 2-3 years so I thought it was unbelievable. The next time I had a donut and a cronut at around the same time and it was still better than the donut, just not worth waiting in line an hour like when they first came out.

Same thing with pretzel buns. Pretzel buns are delicious because they are bread and bread is delicious.

Yes. The very first ingredient is sugar. I don't know why they cal it hazelnut spread. It's farking chocolate, with a smattering of hazelnut tossed in.

Still tasty though.

I'll give you cronuts, pretzel buns, and avocado toast as fads, but I've been eating Nutella on stuff since I was a kid and I'm 41. They've been making it like what, like 60 years? That's some longevity for a fad.

Nutella being on everything and treated like the greatest thing EVAR is a new thing and a fad.

Since WW2 when chocolate became scare so they started cutting it with hazelnut paste.

One factor is that "Nutella" is not a constant recipe. They change it over time and vary it for different markets. The guy hyping it may have tasted a better product than the one you tried.

I think the point is that it's ok if you like it and ok if you don't. But also to realize that the concept of marginal rate of satisfaction applies.

Maybe in the US, but when I was in Europe it was already everywhere being put on everything.

TJs uses whole hazelnuts in this. It's one of my favorite chocolate bars on the planet, and I'm a chocolate freak (I eat chocolate every day after dinner).  You might find it more palatable as the nuts are nearly unadulterated.

Add some flaked Cadbury or Ghirardeli chocolate for perfection.

Never mind the Nutella. They need to focus on lobbying the US government to allow proper Kinder Eggs to be sold here. I've seen these not quite Kinder Eggs for sale which is better than nothing but isn't the same at all.

Are you in the US? Because Kit Kats are made by Hershey under license in the US, which is why they're particularly awful. They put something called polyglycerol polyricinoleate in it instead of cocoa butter.

On the other hand, I tried some Kit Kats from the UK, and they were kind of weird in a different way.
 
2018-01-14 03:28:41 AM  
I might buy one packet. My groove is more in the line of 90%+ dark chocolate, and milk chocolate or the not-really-chocolate products don't draw me to repeats.

I need to find a place where I can get those.  Maybe in a Cleveland area Asian market.  When I went to San Francisco about 3 years ago, they were selling them at Walgreen's.
