Isn't it basically keeping the entire Italian economy afloat these days?

Not really my idea of a spread for toast, mind.

It makes me feel like sh**t, but tastes great.

Horrible spread, though it doesn't make my gag reflex kick in as quickly as mayonnaise or mustard.

This place sucks. I don't understand how someone can not like Nutella. I reserve belief that god exists solely because of the existence of Nutella.

Considering the job you're doing at selling it to the masses, here, I can't be surprised that some people don't like it.

It's okay; I don't get the extreme reactions over it, positive or negative. I only eat it occasionally because it really is sickeningly sweet, though I have found that a dab of Nutella goes great with a crisp and particularly tangy apple.

I don't get the extreme reactions over it, positive or negative.

Somewhere along the way, Nutella got branded a "hipster snack" or something, with certain people (such as Jake, in this thread) going out of their way to amp up the kitsch value of a simple nut & milk chocolate spread. Other people ended up recognizing it as such and thus feel the need to overcompensate by making their distaste for it really super clear even though it's basically just chocolate.

It's actually a really common reaction-rereaction breakdown you could see in a lot of products/websites/events these days that becomes a really easy phenomenon to spot once you're looking for it. It's weird.

It's like...chocolate and hazelnut with the texture of peanut butter. It's the closest thing an introvert like myself can get to sex.

OK I got some. You guys overhyped it, I'll be able to finish the jar but it's not really any better than the best peanut butter and as noted has the potential to make one feel icky, meaning I doubt I'll go through the jar very fast.

My work wants you to punch in between two minutes before your shift starts and the actual start, since I actually get to work on time I'm punching in two minutes early most days. The extra money I make on that in OT in one week about covers the cost of the jar. And since today is the last day of my work week, maybe I can consider it my "punctuality reward".

Next week I should spend it all on ramen and see how long that lasts me.

I prefer to keep my sweets and my sandwiches separate, thank you very much.

If you really like that kind of stuff though, every German supermarket chain has a no-brand variety at 40% of the prize and utterly indistuingishable taste. While the actual upmarket alternative - Nudossi, which was actually the GDR version originally - is not available everywhere but doesn't cost far more and tastes noticeably better. More hazelnuts. I like hazelnuts.

I'm confused by the sudden explosion of enthusiasm towards it in the last few years. It's decent, but it's not like it's some kind of condiment game-changer or something.

Try going to a grocery store where Peeps are on sale now and picking up a package and eating the whole thing in one sitting to get an idea.

Freedom spread, but I don't understand why some posters in this thread want to ruin it by mixing it with peanut butter.

Wait, did this actually happen? Maybe this just didn't travel across the pond, as I was aware of no hype and counter-reactions regarding Nutella or any other spread that I put on my toast.
