Nutella imported from Italy in Metro Detroit

I've been buying it online from Amazon but its been a bit pricey. I was wondering if any Italian shops in the tri-county area have it. Maybe I'm crazy but it tasted better than the stuff thats made in Canada that we get.

  1. I'm sorry I can't help you with the Nutella search, but I don't think you're crazy about the taste. We use HP Sauce, a British brown sauce, when you buy it in the U.S. the ingredients are much different than what you get in Europe. The packaging is still the same though. So we either buy from Amazon or wait for a relative to come for a visit.

      costco - 9-10 bucks for two large jars

      1. re: gan911

        The Costco Nutella is a good deal, but note that it actually is the Made In Canada version.

    2. Try italian bakeries in your area. 9/10 times they buy the imported stuff. Also, Nutella in the little glass jars is always imported.

      For the record, I do think the taste difference is in your head (The recipe is exactly the same...lets just say I have access to folks at Ferrero)

      1. Try Nocciolatta if you can find it. It's an organic chocolate/hazlenut spread and IMHO, much more tasty than Nutella. We buy it at Jungle Jim's in the Cincinnati area.

        1. kroger's version of nutella - there's a crunchy version and thats delicious and pretty close to the real thing too

          1. I checked at Vince & Joe's today & their Nutella is from Canada. They did have 4 or 5 other brands though - Eurocrem, Pernigotti (dark chocolate) and a couple more whose names I can't remember now.

              Thanks for the suggestions. The Nutella from Canada is actually the US version...

              I will stop by Cantoro in Livonia one day and see what they have.

                Well Cantoro in Livonia has the italian version. Its 6.99 but well worth it. Didn't really have time to browse the place but they do have a lot of stuff there. Worth a trip if you're in the area.

                  Olive rosemary bread from Cantoro's is awesome, next time you're there...
