Thread: "Thawed" Nutella

    Default "Thawed" Nutella

    A few weeks ago I posted about putting Nutella in the fridge (not
    Freezer) Well as I got closer to the bottom of the bottle I decided
    to let it thaw. Guess what, it's even yummier now! One section has
    the consistency of chocolate pudding - all shimmery and wiggly.
    MMMMMMMM! (visualizes Bill Crosby puddin commercials from back when)
    One corner of the jar is still like the normal Nutella though.

    BTW I saw a picture of a 3 kg Nutella jar on the internet. Oh one day
    it shall be mine!

    I can't find the pic I saw earlier (a man holding the jar looking
    happy) but here's a few other funny Nutella pics. I now want both a
    3kg and 5 kg jar. I think I will contact NutellaUSA and ask what is
    the largest size available in N. America and the World.

    It is
    In Italy you find those jars in highway gast-stations (Autogrill, Motta,
    Pavesi, Spizzico...) or in those supermarkets which specialize in supersized
    goods, such as 3kg mayonnaise jars or alike.

    Costco sells a two pack of huge jars which I will never buy again. Much as
    she used to like it, daughter never made her way through one jar before it
    expired.

    It "expired"? Was it bad or rotten? Or was it just past the date of
    best sale on the label?

    Alas, these Costco jars are only 0.75 kg per jar. Mere snack packs by
    true devotee standards. Refrigerate thee and extend thy shelf life if
    need be and only use clean spoons. I know this to be righteously true
    because I too worship at Temple Costco. We must strive harder and
    ultimately prove ourselves worthy of all that is true and Nutella.

    Yes, at first I thought "geez, no way you'd get this through airport
    security" but then I thought maybe EU airport security isn't as
    crazy/mickey raton and you can check that in your luggage?

    I thought about the luggage - but who uses hard sided suitcases
    anymore? It would require purchasing one just for the Nutella, so I'd
    probably ship it home and hope it gets there.

    I do, for one. My huge twenty-year-old hard-sided Samsonite has traversed
    hundreds of thousands of miles and still protects my belongings perfectly.
    What fault do you find with hard-sided suitcases?

    I'm not the OP, but:
    --they are too heavy
    --they don't expand to fit all the good stuff you buy on a trip.

    I should think they would hold up better for flying. But if you are just
    taking car trips they would be too heavy and cumbersome to lug around.

    I got my first set of soft sided luggage when I was 12. So that would be 40
    years ago. I used those for many years. Then I bought a really nice set of
    faux leather. They served me well for many years and held up well for
    flying. But I soon realized how heavy they were to have to lug around for
    car trips. My husband has that luggage now. It's still in good shape.
    Just not for me. Now I have an assortment of lightweight bags, some of
    which I got used on Ebay. Mostly I just go on overnight or weekend things
    now so need various sizes of bags.

    I have noticed that the trend for many road trippers is not to use luggage
    at all but those large lidded plastic boxes. Not really sure why. Less
    expensive perhaps? But they take up sooo much room in the back of the van.

    That reminds me. When my brother was in high school or perhaps just out of
    it, he and some friends took a trip to a small, fancy hotel where they got a
    suite with a kitchen in it. They decided to pack some pots and pans for use
    in the kitchen. They were using an old hard sided suitcase that I had
    played with as a kid. I think it was made of some sort of like...pressed
    cardboard that had been glazed or something. It was really weird. I think
    it had belonged to my grandpa. The corners had something more sturdy on
    them. Leather? Metal? I can't remember now. It was covered with stickers
    from places it had been. But by the time my brother was using it, it had
    seen better days and the latch didn't want to stay closed. No problem! He
    just put a belt around it.

    So into the hotel they trudged with the badly rigged suitcase. They had to
    go up the stairs with the case and as luck would have it the belt fell off,
    the latch came open and the pots and pans went clanging down the stairs.
