Nutella from Italy: Where to find?

As you may know, Nutella is manufactured all over the world, and so the (plastic) jars sold in the U.S. are NOT from Italy. The Italian Nutella (glass jar) can be gotten, though, and a friend of mine is looking for places to get it.

I myself get it at D. Coluccio's in Brooklyn, but my friend is looking for places farther east (Queens, maybe Long Island).

Any ideas for me to pass along are greatly appreciated.

(Oh, believe it or not, Saturday, Feb 5th, is World Nutella Day. Eesch! I made my own Nutella a couple weeks back, and so posted this item should anybody be interested.

  1. I'm not sure about in Brooklyn but Eataly should definitely have it - Fifth Avenue and 23rd St., and a real treat if you have not been there.

      Been, thanks. Friend was looking East, as Queen and L.I. are his turf. Thanks anyway. MM

        Surprisingly. Eataly does not sell Nutella to my knowledge. They carry another, more high-end chocolate/hazelnut spread. I did see Italian Nutella in a large (11lb) jar in the Chelsea Market. I cannot help you in the outer boroughs, however, sorry to the OP.

          An 11 lb jar at Buon Italia?

          Zounds! I will be all over that on my next trip down.

      2. What's the difference between Italian Nutella and "American" Nutella?

          Actually, Nutella is made (under license, I'd imagine) all over the world, so there are at least slight differences, depending where you are. This Wiki page has a breakdown of ingredients from country to country, if you're interested. (


          I am no expert. I just know that the one I buy here in Maine (made in Canada) is stiffer and sweeter (I think) than the Italian-made product, which I find creamier and more subtle in flavor. I also like it better.

            I'm pretty sure that I've seen Italian nutella at Sorriso's in Astoria. At least worth a phone call to them if western Queens would help your friend.
