Nutella from Italy: Where to find?
- Mister Meatball Feb 3, 2011 10:20 AM
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. http://bit.ly/fF66BS)
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. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutella)
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.
