Nutella is delicious, and in small amounts with other things won't kill most people, but it depends on how you control your blood sugar. For example, a teaspoon of it on a slice of low carb bread or better, on some high fiber fruit like blackberries, is going to give you 1/3 of the numbers mentioned in the 1 tablespoon serving size on the package. But yes, the first ingredient is sugar. I gave my jar away, and made my own healthier version. 1/4 cup almond butter made from pure almonds, with 1 teaspoon dark cocoa powder is DELICIOUS to me. And you can make it with other nut butters too. Nutella is made with macademia nuts I believe, which are high on fat content, and expensive. So I haven't bought any macademia nut butter for 15 bucks or whatever they're selling it for these days LOL the fact that nutella is cheaper tells me it's got a lot more than just nut butter and cocoa as advertised. So does a glance at the ingredients list, hence my creating my own delicious varieties of chocolate flavored nut butters.

Only you can decide which is best for you. If you're into that texture and taste, there are other healthier ways to get it, so I wouldn't recommend buying another jar of the stuff. Best wishes :)

I would say it's not a great choice...1 Tbsp is 100 calories, 6 grams of fat and 11 carbs and 10g sugars...plus the number one ingredient is sugar...

Does anyone know if Nutella is good or bad for diabetics? I have a whole jar and don't know what to do with it.
