Ok, first of all, different from what? I put it on toast with butter. How 'bout with banana? Or peanut butter... crackers... apple... I'll come back if I think of more. I Nutella btw, I grew up on the stuff but I'm making myself take a break from it at the moment because I can seriously eat a whole jar in like less than a week, but I can live vicariously thru you, right?

hmmm...this one just came to me

I think it would be great for certain types of games
The consistency is so nice and thick--regular chocolate syrup can be so drippy and messy. Nutella would be more like body paint.

I cannot have that stuff in the house b/c I would just get out a spoon. I like it on fruit, esp. strawberries! I've also make dessert tortillas with it!

Being a good little German girl I had it for breakfast on bread almost every day growing up .

But now I also enjoy it on pretzels and in/on crepes. Pairing it with salt is key.

Oh God, it's so good.

I just had some on a piece of bread!

Another way is with peanut butter, bananas and that marshmallow fluff...all together in a sandwich!

I know that fluff isn't healthy, but its soooo good!

Do you know that Rapunzel makes an organic chocolate hazelnut spread? Tastes like Nutella, although I think the texture may be slightly different (it's been a long time since I've had Nutella so I don't remember for sure). No hydrogenated oils in it, either, which I think Nutella contains, and the sugar in it is Rapadura (whole cane sugar, not refined). Not to rain on your Nutella parade, just thought you'd like to know. The Rapunzel kind is awesome.

There is no secret ingredient.

Strawberries, pretzels, graham crackers, crepes, waffles, but my favorite is on a slice (or 4) of French bread. Or, I also like it straight out of the jar. It's really good in coffee too. Ooh, I think I should go have some.

THANK YOU!!!
Since we went refined sugar free, this is one of the things I have seriously missed. Not that we bought it that often... but Nutella has been the butt of many jokes and inside humour among my friends for the better part of a decade - I'd hate to give it up, just for old time's sake. :-D I MUST try to find this Rapunzel stuff. Do they sell it in Canada, do you know? Do they have a website?

Here's one link where you can buy it (I haven't shopped there, it was just the first one that came up on Froogle): http://www.shopnatural.com/Merchant2...ogle&qtk=19461

The Rapunzel site is http://www.rapunzel.com, but I don't think you can order directly from them.

If you shop at a natural foods store that carries other Rapunzel products, they might be able to special order it for you.

I love it best on a spoon.

I also adore it on croissants. On bananas. With pretzel sticks.

MMMMMMMMM

Also, at Cost Plus World Market they have a larger jar of chocolate hazelnut spread that is about the same as Nutella - only you get more!

I went to their website, and their store locator, and found out they retail out of an organic co-op mere MINUTES from where we're about to move! :-D
I also found out that by joining the coop I can get tons of organic produce at really great prices, and they also run a series of environmental causes that I feel passionately about. I've been looking for something like that for AGES!

It's chocolately-hazelnut FATE!!!

HAIL NUTELLA!

NUTELLA...one of the wonders of the world. SO good!!

I love it on fruit, there's something about the nutty chocolately creaminess that goes so well with it. Personally, I'm fond of it on tangerines (especially the clementine variety), starfruit, and bananas.

I got thru grad school making brunch pancakes with pieces of mango and banana chopped into them...with gobs of nutella spread over and all melty. Mmmm...what a treat!

Yeah, the fluff is what makes it unhealthy. Just the fluff!!! :LOL

Recipies please!

Did you know that the filling for Ferrero Rocher is basically just Nutella!!

it's definitely good for games.... um, i mean, so i've heard

strawberries, ice cream, pancakes, i hadn't thought of coffee--good idea. would it make a good frosting for a cake? i also like it on graham crackers, or rye crisps, and i imagine it would be good on sortbread cookies
