Lookig for Nutella alternatives. As good as Nutella is, I know
there are some better spreads available, possibly some Italian brands. What are they and which stores carry them?
If someone could make a suggestion of a product that doesn't contain peanuts, that would be awesome. Nutella has peanut oil in it.
It has been reported on this board that Italy-produced Nutella is far superior to that made here in the states.
Does anyone have a source for the Italian Nutella?
I picked it up at a specialty candy store (Dairy Fresh Candies in Boston). It really is better than what's commonly available here. It comes in a glass jar and the nutrition info is in Italian.
There is a cocoa hazelnut spread from Trader Joes that is pretty good, and I believe that it doesn't contain peanut oil.
And, of course, there are those delicious spreads (mentioned in another post) from Le Pain Quotidien. They have a chocolate hazelnut one, and also one that's just hazelnut. Yum.
