Thought of the Day – 5/29/2014 – Nutella Like It Is

29 May

Our household has been on a bit of a Nutella kick.  The kids like to ask for a peanut butter and Nutella sandwich at meal time.

Sure, Nutella can call itself a “hazelnut spread”, and tout its quality ingredients like as skim milk.

But let’s be honest here, gang:

Nutella is rich chocolate and hazelnut frosting that is socially acceptable to be eaten as part of a meal.

Personally, I think it gained that social acceptance for the way it can help transform everyday breakfast foods into one-off versions of yummy treats.

Nutella on bread?  A poor man’s cake.

Nutella on toast?  A non-fried, chocolate iced donut.

Nutella on bacon?  An experience not of this world.

Nutella on a spoon?  A utensil that will be licked clean.

Not that I would know anything about that last one…

    Nutella is an mystery to me here in France – they are all raised on the stuff, yet it’s junk food in a jar. Judging by the proportions on the label, there’s probably a handful of hazelnuts (13%) and a spoonful of cocoa powder (7%) swimming in all that sugar and palm fat. You have just introduced me to a new idea: peanut butter and Nutella.
