Ok, you addicts, tell me. How is it different from peanut butter?

Sweetness, CHOCOLATE, very different nut taste, and finer, less sloppy and oily texture.

Re: Nutella/ It's Taking Over My Life
[quote="Phoenix32890"]Do you use Nutella? Are you able to control yourself? If you couldn't have any more, would you have serious withdrawal pangs? Please help!!!![/quote]

No, yuck, can't stand it!
I think I used to eat it as a child...
We also used to have something like thin bars of chocolate on bread then!
Turns my stomach to even think of it now.

Have to put both of those down to childhood sillinesses!
Not big into sweets on my bread anymore...

My sons used to insist I bought it for them, and I have lost about 20 lbs since they moved out....

I knew about the hazelnuttiness, hadn't heard about the chocolate. That explains a lot.

Actually, Nutella is more a chocolate cream then a hazelnut cream - but it hasn't got enough cacoa in it to be called "chocalate cream" legally (though more than hazelnuts).

To eat white bread with thin chocalte on it ...

... stopped only when Nutella came in the shops (in the early 60's).

I'm one of the pre-Nutella generation :wink:

One of my favourite childhood memories is from about 1961, visiting Germany.

My grandfather set me up on a footstool, with a chair as my table. He then served posh white bread with unsalted butter and thin chocolate.

ahhhhh

Nutella's fine, but it doesn't have that memory tag.

love nutella, very nice on a multigrain bread, helps create the illusion of healthy eating

It strange that people eat it on bread. Seems to me that it would be great on pound cake, with whipped cream.

If you can find a source for rusks, give 'em a try.

I think it would make a dandy somemore and might eliminate the problems with the chocolate and the graham cracker cracking and dumping the gooey marshmallow in the dirt.

I think I still have a memory of Farley's rusks when I was a baby, or could that be a false memory??
