Nutella from Italy

Any stores in Manhattan that have a reliable supply of the 750g jars, that I can just walk into and buy when I am up there next month?

    Keep a look out for 200 gram glass bottles of Nutella. The label indicates imported and they are from their factory in Alba, Italy.

      Eataly must have it.

        A while ago, I noticed they were hawking "their" version of Nutella, specially made for them. So I'm not sure if that is what the OP is looking for...

          They do have it at Eataly -- I just saw it the other day.

          Is it something that you need to buy in Manhattan? I googled and you can order from US-based stores that will ship. One store came up at $9.50 per 750 jar.

            Yes. I want to pick it up there when I am coming to visit, it is a gift. The place you are talking about, Cerini Coffee is all the way in the bronx.

              As far as I can tell from the website they will ship to your hotel or wherever you will be staying at.

              Not sure what you are asking, the Nutella sold at most places in the us is made in new jersey, I believe. It is different from, and inferior too the Nutella made in Italy.

                I was asking where the Nutella sold in most NYC retailers was manufactured. I believe that Ferrero has plants all over the Americas and did not know how difficult it was to find the "real thing" here in NY. I know that many people schlep the containers home from Italy, so I figured there was a real difference!

                  Pretty difficult as most is manufactured in the US. The best place I found is cerini coffee, if you want it shipped or if you are willing to go to the bronx, which RCC mentioned below. In this case, however, I am looking for a quick pickup for convenience.

                    The ingredients from the Italy website and the US. I don't know what the laws in Italy dictate about specifying sourcing of vegetable oil, but otherwise the same.

                    Nutella Italy - Ingredients List:

                    Ingredienti Zucchero, olio vegetale, nocciole (13%), cacao magro, latte scremato in polvere (5%), siero di latte in polvere, emulsionante: lecitina (soia), aromi.

                    Nutella Canada - Ingredients List:

                    ingredients: sugar, palm oil, hazelnuts, cocoa, skim milk, reduced minerals whey (milk), lecithin as emulsifier (soy), vanillin: an artificial flavor.

                      I have never had the Nutella from canada (sold in canadian market) but I have heard it was different than and more similar to the european nutella than the one sold in the US.

                      I have had the Nutella sold in the US and Italy side by side on multiple occasions and I like the one from Italy quite a bit more.

                        All Nutella sold in the US is manufactured in Canada.

                          Are you sure?
                          I just googled a few local merchants that sells Nutella advertised with "MADE IN ITALY".

                            Let me expand on that, "American" Nutella is actually made in Canada, meaning the stuff commonly found on grocer's shelves. Yes, you can find Italian-made Nutella here, but it's imported by the reseller, they don't distribute it in the US.

                      Thanks for the tip about Cerini...I'll have to add it to my AA shopping agenda. Walked by for years and never thought to take a peek inside.

                    I believe it's made in Canada. While the recipes differ internationally, it's in proportions only (less/more sweet to local tastes).

                    From the Nutella USA website FAQ:

                    "Where is Nutella® made?

                    Nutella® that is sold in the U.S. market is made by our manufacturing plant in Canada. Other Ferrero plants that produce Nutella® are located worldwide."

                      If memory serves, I believe I saw the large jars of Nutella in the Italian market at Chelsea Market. If no one can give you a more concrete answer, you might try there.
