In recent years, my hazelnut-chocolate craving has been fed with these:
And these (the dark chocolate is equally divine).
How is it that I spent my entire grocery-shopping existence walking by and never really noticing this?
I've seen it on the shelf, sure. I remember passively thinking, "I wonder what that's like," and quickly dismissing a purchase because of the hideous price attached to it. I didn't want to make that kind of investment on something that might be too gross to finish.
This week, my stupormarket had the small-sized jar of it on sale, so I impulsively dropped one into the cart.
Overnight, I've become a full-blown Nutella junkie. I enter the kitchen and immeditely fight the urge to snitch a baby-spoonful-sized nip from the jar. My mind is whirling with culinary possibilities. The top of my wanna-try list is a schmear on a slice of toasted home-made pound cake.
I went back yesterday and bought two more jars.
And, no, I never noticed the "Ferrero" logo on the jar, or I would have been hooked much sooner.
Do you enjoy Nutella? How?
