Nobody warned me!!

I've heard of Nutella for years and knew that it was a chocolate hazlenut spread. Sounds simple enough. A couple weeks ago I finally purchased some. Ummmm, nobody told me how dangerously delicious it is!! Seriously people. Someone should've warned me.

I drink a chocolate hazlenut latte almost every day, so I don't know why it didn't occur to me to try this stuff before, but it didn't. Now though.. Oh, now I'm hooked! This stuff is like crack. I'm constantly thinking of new ways to eat it and use it. I can't get enough! Let's not think about how terribly unhealthful it is...

So far I've tried it on pretzels, saltine crackers, graham crackers, toast, pancakes, a spoon, and my pinky more times than I can count. It beckons me from the cupbard constantly.

And apparently I'm not the only one. There's a World Nutella Day! It just doesn't seem right to enjoy a 'food' product this much. But I do. I saw a recipe the other day that involved Nutella, Frangelico, and Bailey's in some sort of divine drink. I think I might explode from that much pleasure.

You are too funny girl. ("This stuff is like crack!") I love it! I haven't actually ever tried nutella either but I sure will now. Like you, I've heard a ton about it but never bought a jar to bring home. I'll let you know how my taste test goes. Ha ha! PS...I just added new photo's to my blog today of Kenidi's party and a "blast from the past bracelet." Just an FYI for you. Ha ha! Thanks much my bloggin' sista! :) Blessings, Angie Seaman

OMG, I adore Nutella! I just spread it on bread (you know, wheat bread, so it's healthy) and eat it sandwich-style. It's perfect when you need that chocolate fix and your Hershey bar stash is depleted.

LOL!! This is NOT good, you have just enticed me to try something that sounds like something I should NOT try! I will resist the delicious chocolate nutty stuff........

LOL Hey, we told you about Nutella! We used to eat it all the time in Italy :) That's what they had to go on crepes, breadsticks, etc. We used to get the boys these little breadstick snack packs that had nutella to dip them in all the time.
