Yep, Nutella is EVIL. You casually go to the store one day and buy a medium-sized pot and the next thing you know you are thinking to yourself "MUST. COAT. EVERY. INCH. OF. MY. INTESTINAL. TRACK. WITH. THIS"

I knew of Nutella before moving to France, but only in the small sizes. I didn't expect to see the huge barrels they roll out in the grocery stores around Christmas. It is really good on crepes, as well as banana and nutella tortillas.

Nutella falls into "Best not to buy in the first place" category for me.

French people really like to eat it for breakfast on biscottes.

There are commercials trying to convince moms to buy it to feed their kids because kids need energy! Now in the US there is plenty of junk-food and plenty of junk-food advertising, but it is rare to come across an ad for chocolate hazelnut spread touted as health food to moms, not children.

LOVE nutella. i usually just use my finger to eat it as no one else in my house eats it. dipping animal crackers or the french equivilant (we called them dirty cookies, can't remember why) is a very tasty snack. try dipping strawberries.....

oh, my kids used to LOVE eating this. You are right, though, it is evil. Once a (large) jar enters your home, it just throws itself in to your stomach, mostly in one day!
