    is my kryptonite.

    If there's a jar in the house, I won't stop thinking about it. If the word is printed on a menu, I won't be able to read any of the other words. If I could find a way to turn the jar inside out and lick it, I wouldn't feel bad about throwing it away with all these thin streaks of good stuff on it.

    This is precisely why I do not keep it in the house.

    The first listed ingredient of Nutella is sugar. The second is modified palm kernel oil. One day I decided not to ingest this anymore. I still think fondly of the good times I had with this crack-substitute (salty pretzels dipped in Nutella... [​IMG]), but I know I'm better without. In theory.

    I have never even held a jar of Nutella in my hands.
    Is it the consistency of peanut butter? Spreadable?

    Think Skippy peanut butter, smooth, but a bit stickier. I prefer making my own hazelnut/cashew butter. Much healthier, just as tasty.

    It is good.

    Do you also like various peanut butters?

    When I was a kid, it seemed there was only smooth and chunky peanut butter.

    Now, there are dozens of varieties.

    My nanny made her own nutella. When I was 12 I got high and my two friends and I ate 2 full jars with spoons (and I used a spatula). My dad was pissed because he liked to start his day with nutella on brioche.

    One of my fondest gluttonous memories.

    For morning breakfast I often have toast with nutella and fresh strawberries on top. Yummy.

    I just recently visited London and Paris for the first time. In any touristey area on EVERY street corner was a crepe + nutella vender. And every cafe was sure to have them as well. Amazing. I couldn't stop eating them. I think I gained 5 lbs of nutella weight

    Haven't had it in years. It's a weakness of mine, so I've done well to avoid it (plus it's also expensive in Seattle). <3 6+ lbs jars [​IMG]

    That hazelnut/cashew butter sounds amazing.

    Yes, it's delectable. Just add a cup of hazelnuts and a 1/4 cup of cashews--for creaminess, due to their higher fat content--into a food processor, and then add either macadamia nut oil, or hazelnut oil (depending on how intense you want the hazelnut flavor) and blend until you've reached desired consistency; add a bit of kosher salt to taste, and try your best not to eat the whole batch.
