italian nutella in toronto

Hi -- just heard that the nutella made in Italy has less coco / sugar and more hazelnuts -- does anyone know if this is carried anywhere in toronto?

Thanks so much!

    Italian grocery stores like Lady York on Dufferin or possibly Highland Farms?

      I bought Nocella in one of the little grocery shops on College between Bathurst and Shaw awhile ago but I can't remember which one...

        Soma carries Slitti's version though it's a little pricey, but addictive! To convince myself I'm eating healthy, I like to stir some into goat's milk yogurt. Delicious!

          old thread I know, but Nutella in Europe is no different than here in Canada.

            There is a different type of Nutella like spread available at Leslieville Cheese Market and Il Gelatiere... for the record I find it too oily and much prefer Nutella.

              I have a personal issue with palm oil products and was wondering if anyone knows of a Nutella type spread that's palm oil free?

                The UK Nutella uses Vegetable oil.
                None of the Canadian products (PC, Metro etc) arre free of it.

                  Thanks. I'll check out the UK import shops.

                    You're welcome. I happen to have an unopened jar of the variety made for Turkey & Russia, which also has vegetable oil instead of palm oil.

                    If you can't find it anywhere, you can have mine.
