I haven't had Nutella since I was 10. I forgot all about it! I used to eat it all the time, usually on toast or a croissant. Maybe it's good that I haven't been around it all that much. . . I'd overindulge like no other. Lol.

Nutella is quite popular in South America, specially in big cities (I'd imagine due to European influence), as someone stated in the first page.
In Sao Paulo, Brazil is pretty common to have all you can eat pizza where you pay a fix price and you get any slice of pizza that you can imagine and as dessert, I've tried Nutella pizza with banana slices. It was pretty good.

My kids got hooked on this just this week. My daughter tried it at her friend's house on waffles and we're hooked. I topped my ice cream with it with sliced bananas. Delicious!

My restaurant supply/warehouse store had Nutella on sale once, so I picked up a jar, thinking it might be a good alternative to peanut butter once in a while on toast. Then I read the ingredients, and put it back on the shelf!

INGREDIENTS (in order of quantity): Sugar, vegetable oil, hazelnuts, cocoa, milk, skimmed-milk powder, milk proteins, lecitine (emulsifying agent), natural flavour

Sorry, but the only thing I'll buy that has sugar listed as the first ingredient, is sugar!

We spread it on graham crackers. It is also good as a spread for banana chunks.

Like you, I read labels on everything I purchase. Perhaps, if more people did that, some of this country's health problems would begin to diminish. But, having said that, please don't disregard the wonderful taste that is Nutella! Consider it a treat, not a 'healthy alternative' to anything! If you spread just a spoonful on toasted whole grain bread, and then top it with fresh sliced strawberries, it's not the worse snack you could eat! Just a helpful hint from one label reader to another!

VB and others; Being diabetic, I too stay away from sugary and starchy things as a rule. But there is wisdom in VeraBlue's words. I was counciled to every once in a while, indulge in something really good, but in small amounts, like a favorite piece of chocolate. The idea is to eat something very good, not the cheap, or waxy stuff. With chocolate, I'd by some Dove dark, and put just a single square in my cheek and suck on it until it was completely dissolved. My favorite is to do the same with a Cadbury Caramello. Nutella works in the same way. Spread a tsp. or so on a piece of whole wheat bread and savor the flavor. This helps stop the cravings that sometimes lead diabetics to occasionally binge on doughnuts, or mashed potatoes, or sugary treats. The amount of sugar taken in is small, but satisfying neough to help control the carbohydrate cravings.

It's also important when using this technique to use something intensely flavorful as that will help satisfy the brain better than weaker flavored foods.

Good call VB! Don't deprive, moderate.
