I have not tried it yet, but what i have read here it is probably just as well. I may not be able to control myself.

I once made a recipe using Nutella that I had seen on the Food Network. Take two slices of pound cake..spread nutella on one piece...cover with sliced strawberries....cover with the 2nd slice...heat up in a panini press or George Foreman. Veryyy delicious!

I found small, individual trial sized Cost Plus. I can buy just enough to satisfy my craving...well almost. It's not enough to blow my calories!
I saw it on sale recently but VERY WISELY didn't fall prey to the lure. It's creamed sugar and very, very dangerous. Bring it into the house only if you are thinking of having an excuse to BLOW YOUR DIET PLAN! It's the devil in a jar! Hope this will be memorable and helpful to someone.

I've tried Nutella way too sweet for me. It wasn't bad when I needed some chocolate in a pinch for a recipe though~

Oh my gosh - this thread is making me crave nutella!
I do keep it in my cupboard at all times- but out of sight - and if I find myself craving chocolate, it's easy to eat a spoon by itself or spread it on a rice cake. Yummy!

when my husband got stationed in hanau,germany I bought some in town and have been eating it since 1979...my kids and grandkids all love it!

Nutella really is amazing. I have been known to have it straight from the jar, but my preferred method of consumption is in a crepe with strawberries. So. Good.

Nutella is one of God's wonderful gift to humankind. Seriously, it's amazing. However, it must be eaten in small quantities as it can also be a diet killer.
I tried Nutella for the first time about a month or two ago and LOVED it. It's a great occasional treat. I eat it on toast for the most part or with fruit. As others have already said though, it contains a lot of sugar so don't go overboard with it!

We sadly discovered it in bulk at Costco. I have been good and only eat it every once in a while with a light smear on Van's whole wheat waffles. But it solves so many cravings and usually gets me to my requires fat and carb intake needed for the day.

Luckily I don't like chocolate all that much so can usually pass it up. But I do really like it with fruit, specifically bananas and strawberries.

I cannot keep nutella in the house. Once the jar is opened, I eat it until it's gone. My older daughter is the same way. I'm thinking that hypoglycemic people (we both are) can't control themselves around nutella. Definitely way too much sugar in it.

OMG - I love this! Of course, like the old saying, if it seems too good to be true - it IS! It is LOADED with sugar :(

I think there is also a SparkRecipe calling for almonds and chocolate, which is even healthier than the recipe I've linked to above, but for some reason, I can't find it in the recipe database! If I come across it again, I'll be sure to post it here. Could've sworn SP_STEPF posted it, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

I love a spoonful for a chocolate fix or spread some on toast.

Love the stuff! I add it to peanut butter on my kid's sandwiches. I also eat it myself: 1 tbsp spread on 2 Eggo Nutri Grain frozen waffles with either sliced banana or sliced strawberries (made into a sandwich).
I also make my own version: 1 cup natural peanut butter + 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips (or vegan alternative). Very good and my kids love it too!
I have it on toast or a wrap with so many different things: jam, banana, coconut, peanut butter....drool. On tea biscuits or stone wheat thins...tastes just like a chocolate covered pretzel, or as a dip for fruit.
It does have A LOT of added sugars, so be sure to limit and make sure you're having it as a treat, rather than trying to get any nutritional benefits from it.

Has anyone tried Nutella? If so, on what or with what?
