Thread: Nutella

    Default Nutella

    It's been a few years since I read many (many!) posts from people on rfc
    extolling the wonderous taste of Nutella. Lately I've been seeing
    advertisements for it on (US) television. Has anyone else noticed these
    advertisements? Not that it matters, just seems odd to me they're suddenly
    ramping up a marketing campaign for Nutella

    Most likely, the timing is on purpose to coincide with the beginning of
    the school year in the USA.

    I've been seeing it too. Not too frequent.

    I always meant to try it.

    I visited their website and entered the "nutella case a month" sweepstakes.
    Last drawing ends 8/31/2009.

    I don't know what I'd do with 12 jars of nutella. Probably donate 11 to the
    foodbank and enjoy one.

    Flipping around I caught an episode of that show Hearty Boys.
    They made peanut butter cookies and sandwiched them with Nutella.

    I'll have to remember that. I love Nutella and I wouldn't pass up a
    nice peanut butter cookie, either.

    Television? What's that? I dropped cable last year, got my converter
    boxes, tested them and haven't turned them on since. Radio has gone the
    same way, I never listen to it any more, only CD or MP3.

    It's pretty much a function of the imminent death of free OTA
    broadcasting. Back a few years ago you got marginal programs / music and
    a moderate number of advertisements for legitimate companies and
    products. Today you get even worse programs / more repetitive music, and
    a huge number of advertisements for scam after scam with hardly any
    legitimate companies or products.

    OTA broadcasting is rapidly dying from a lack of advertising revenue and
    in their desperate attempt to stay alive, stations are accepting obvious
    scam advertising (a violation of their requirement to "operate in the
    public interest" as far as I'm concerned) which is only hastening their
    decline as it drives away even more viewers / listeners.

    I haven't noticed advertising for Nutella; but, imagine they are trying to
    cash in on the economic downturn. Many people who had been eating lunch out
    are now brown-bagging and Nutella makes a great change of pace to peanut
    butter. I think a lot of companies are doing this; SPAM, the canned meat,
    is advertising heavily on TV, something I hadn't seen in years. Conversely,
    one of the local (STL) grocery chains used to have about a quarter of their
    weekly circular devoted to prepared food (baked chicken, stuffed potatoes,
    etc.); now, there is almost none of that advertised.

    When I buy Nutella, I buy it at the local international grocer, who imports
    it (UK, I think); the other grocers usually have New Jersey made Nutella
    that is a bit different in composition and taste. Good stuff; my favorite
    way to eat is is to spread a bit on Girl Scout shortbread cookies.

    When we were in Paris these little stands made crepes to order. You
    could get sweet or savory ones. The favorite sweet ones were filled with
    a banana and Nutella, rolled into a cone shape and topped with ehipped
    cream so that it looked like an ice cream cone. Yum!

    Nutella is, and has been, much more popular outside the US. Perhaps they
    are just trying to expand their market? It is a delicious spread that
    unfortunately aids waistline spread too. (

    This may be true of 'Milo' as well. I see it on restaurant menus all
    over the world, EXCEPT in the US.

    We both have fond foreign memories of Nutella. I stuffed mine into hot
    croissants on Isola d'Elba. Breakfast with Napolean's Ghost.

    Noticed the advert this morning. Laughable that the marketing company is
    trying to imply that Nutella has much nutritional content though
    Perhaps the European version which tastes a little more of hazelnuts.

    The mother in the ad talks about spreading it on nutritional things.

    Finished our latest jar but it's too expensive to be more than an
    occasional treat

    Sort of like the add that says that 1 bowl of Corn Flakes and 4 ounces of
    milk is a good source of protein...sure...the milk is.

    All that aside, I think nutella in croissants is a great idea.

    Normally I make chocolate croissants, which is pretty standard,
    but I think next time I'll smear in some nutella along with it.
    Gotta be good.

    Yes, I know he was exiled on Elba. He liked it *so* much he escaped to
    undertake the Cent-Jours and was then confined to St. Helena until his
    death. His ghost, if it is anywhere, is either on St. Helena or haunting
    Wellington.

    What is "milo" All I can find is that it is a man's name and a grain
    that grows across the street from me every other year. They rotate it

    I stopped eating and posting about it when somebody mentioned that
    it was the Official Food of Lesbian and Gays.

    My Nutella phase was short-lived.

    It is a terrible tasting chocolate beverage, served either hot or cold.
    (It is almost a sin to call it chocolate!!) When I was in my younger
    teenage years, my parents brought me to the US to visit their friends. I
    remember being served a drink called 'Ovaltine.' I believe at the time
    that I found the two quite similar.

    'Milo' can be found in most supermarkets outside the US. They also
    market a chocolate bar with the same green wrapper and logo.

    Give me Hershey's syrup any day!
