Nutella from Italy

The large mega jar of Nutella is available at Maxi and it is imported from Italy. It is also on sale....Purchased my 5 KG jar from Maxi in Pointe Claire.

      Yes I find the hazelnut is more evident.

        You might find other threads on this in Chowhound, there was a thread asking where Nutella from Italy is available and that is why I posted this thread.

        1. re: Evilbanana11

          I've never tried Nutella but my kids love it. I have bought jars from an Italian deli that are glass instead of plastic. Also, all the writing on the label is in Italian.......if your label is written in Italian, I'd say I'd say it's from Italy! :-)

            I had contacted the manufacturer last year to find where the small jars were made, and I was advised by email, Italy.

        2. Isn't all the Nutella sold in Canada from Italy?

            On my jar it only says "ferrero Canada "
            Not made in Italy or made in Canada .

            Having bought some in Italy last yeAr, all I can say is that it tAstes the same.

              My jar says imported and I have previously emailed the company asking where it derives from and was advised that the jars marked imported are from Italy.

                I do find a difference and so do others.

                No, the very small jars which are in glass are from Italy. The standard size jars are made in Canada. The very large jars are also from Italy, if marked imported.

                  No, the Nutella normally sold here is made in Brantford Ontario.

                  No idea if it tastes any different though.

                    You have to read the label, some are marked imported.

                    1. I got a 750mL jar from Milano in Little Italy. It's smoother and has a stronger hazelnut flavor than the regular variety...mmm.

                        It does have a slightly different taste, and I agree it is stronger in hazelnut flavor.
