They Were Not Kidding - Nutella IS Awesome!

People in other countries would probably see this as a bonehead post, but since Nutella Hazelnut Cocoa Spread is not big in the Philippines, I only got to try it last month. Out of curiosity mostly, as I spent quite a time hanging out at 9gag and folks there were praising Nutella to high heavens.

We were browsing food items at SM Supermarket in Megamall when I saw a plastic bottle of Nutella . I found it expensive - P161.50 for a 220g bottle - that I almost put it back on the shelf. For someone like me who gobbles up twice or thrice as much bread spread as a normal human being, that small bottle might not last long.

Anyway, when I got home, I ate Nutella before having the sense to take a picture, so here's a picture from the Nutella Facebook Page instead.

yummy!

Holy moly! Those 9gaggers were not exaggerating - Nutella really IS amazing!

Nutella reminded me of the chocolate dip of Yan-Yan, which was a favorite snack when I was a kid.

From what I read online, there is now an actual Nutella version of Yan-Yan. Has anyone seen that anywhere here in Metro Manila? Let me know!

People who haven't tried Nutella might expect it to be overly sweet since it's a chocolatey spread. But it's not, at least for me. It goes well with tasty bread, pan de sal, and even crackers.

Oh Nutella, come to mama!

    1. I'm not familiar with Crump. Is it widely available here and less expensive than Nutella?

    2. I think the brand is Crumpy :) I bought one in Landmark before but didn't like it that much. Hehe so we didn't finish the whole thing, and yes it's cheaper. Nutella is still the best for me.. well next to peanut butter. LOL! :D I wanna try "Nutella & Go"- the cookie sticks w/ nutella dip, i read it in blogs but haven't seen it in the grocery :) what i often see is Yanyan with hazelnut dip.

  2. I love Nutella but since it's really expensive, i tried several alternatives and finally stick with GOYA choco hazelnut spread. by far it is the closest to Nutella, to me that is :)

    what you heard was correct, there is a choco hazelnut version of yan-yan...the brown packaging :) i have tasted it and is quite nice. groceries have them already though mist of the time, out of stock :)

    i had fun visiting your blog :)

    1. Great! I was actually looking for a cheaper alternative. Thanks for your suggestion.

      The Yan-Yan version I was referring to was the Nutella brand one, also with breadsticks and a small tub of Nutella on the side. But it was good to know that Yan-Yan has a choco hazelnut version, that's probably a lot cheaper than the Nutella one.

  3. For someone who devours chocolates, I don't like chocolate spreads on my bread. Gusto ko lang sila kainin as is. For spreads, Goober pa rin ako =)

  5. Now I'm more intrigued! I just saw an empty bottle of Nutella in the kitchen sink like a few days ago.. if I only knew how great tasting it was, I would've played tug-o-war with my brothers for it. Lol!

  6. I love Nutella!!! :D I have it as spread for breads and even on crackers.. I've also noticed that it tasted similar to Ferrero Rocher's chocolate filling, probably this is what they put inside them! :D

  12. Agree! Nutella really tastes great! no need for bread, biscuits or whatever - just spoon it. I can only indulge with this when I am abroad, here it is so pricey! but sometimes I do satisfy my cravings!

  15. I love Nutella! the taste never gets old and it always reminds me of my childhood memories. Also, when I went to Dubai, they've used this as a filling in a crepe which was really delicious.
