Time for me to reference one of my favorite movies...
a coincidence, since I just ordered it from Netflix (I'm doing a favorite movie revisit).

MacLarens Imperial Sharp Cold Pack

(hamburger thinks it's referred to as a cheese product, I can't recall, but want to go buy some now)

It's a tangy cheddar sorta spread - but not spread like a cream cheese - spread more like a chevre.

The Nutella I remember in Europe was different than what I've bought in the US. The European version seemed to taste more like chocolate (at least it did 20 years ago). I think I stopped buying it when I noticed they started to use partially hydrogenated oil in it. Have they taken that out now?

Backing up and maybe I'm forgetting, where did nutella come from and what were the ingredients THEN? OK, ok, maybe at the beginning of this thread.

I can do the homework, but maybe not this evening.

The best alternative, for Nu Yorkers, is the spread they make at Le Pain Quotidien - little rustic bakery/restaurant. Their hazelnut spread does not have a paralell in this world, and i've been through many hazelnut products.

In Europe, you get two versions: the North-version, which is nuttier, and the South-version, which is sweeter.

The nutspread in Le Pain Quotidien tastes like ... a good remake of Nutella, I think, at least in their (original) Belgian bakeries.

dag- Thank you. I found a location for Le Pain Quotidian at New York,
1270 First Avenue between 68th & 69th streets.

Coincidentally, that location is about one block from my doc's office. Now I know where I am going to lunch when I am in NY! Very Happy

watch out, phoenix, that place is dangerous.

luckily also very busy, especially during brunch hours. unfortunately, they also have the bakery section where you can get the said spread at the counter. oy. $8.50. Worth every last spoonlick.

Isn't it horrible having to pass these places all the time and say no? There's a place near me they make fudge, the smell comes out all over the High Street. Foodporn.

Oh, nuts. When I was in New York in 2003, I went a few times to the Le Pain Quotidien near 85th and Madison, since it was near the Met museum, which I kept going back to. Totally missed any hazelnut spread....

I finally broke and bought some of this mystery stuff that everyone has been raving about and all I can say is "Oh NO"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I spread this stuff on some bread and thought "it really can't be that good, it doesn't look like anything special", and then I took a bite Shocked

When I finished enjoying every last bit of my bread with about 2 tbsp of the stuff smeared neatly on there, I turned the jar around to find there are 100 calories in 1 tbsp Shocked Shocked Shocked

This small jar of evil calories will haunt me until it's gone and it's all Phoenix's fault. I was able to resist until she somehow drew me in with some kind of power stronger than I, and now I must fight the demon in my pantry Evil or Very Mad

We love Nutella too, but why is it made in different formulations in different locations? The stuff I get at Costco is made in Canada and contains palm kernel oil (bad). The stuff I get at the local grocer is made in USA with soybeal oil. I'm sure the "real" stuff from Europe is completely different. Why?
