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?

  1. 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.

    1. Buon Italia in Chelsea Market.

        Thanks Cato and ukitali Buon Italia looks like a really good option. I will be around Union Square a lot.

      2. DiPalo's Fine Foods 200 Grand Street.

            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!

              1. re: erica

                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.

                1. re: tpigeon

                  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.

                  1. re: ferret

                    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.

                    1. re: tpigeon

                      All Nutella sold in the US is manufactured in Canada.

                      1. re: ferret

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

                        1. re: RCC

                          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.

                  2. re: tpigeon

                    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.

                2. re: tpigeon

                  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."


              2. 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.

                  1. re: tpigeon


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

                    1. re: RCC

                      That is my second option. Thanks.
