I can buy it at my grocery store. I've seen it at most of them. You can eat it on all kinds of stuff. I've heard about people eating it on waffles, pancakes, crackers, fruit, muffins, etc.

It is awesome! Warning...you will probably become addicted, so proceed with caution!

Nutella is a old popular chocolate/hazelnut cream. Made by an Italian Company see here: Nutella - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I prefer it simply on bread, but you can cook crepes and cakes.

A lot of people eat it raw with a spoon.

EDIT: me too think that it is highly addictive

Its wonderful stuff, from Europe.

I love to get fresh strawberries, eat them with a little bit on each one. If you check out Everyday Italian on Food Network : Healthy Recipe Collections, Party Ideas, Quick & Easy Recipes, Cooking Videos you can see some of the recipes that Giada has come up with for Nutella.

ONe of my favorites was you get a Sara Lee pound cake, you slice it like your going to make sandwiches, spread some Nutella on each slice and then put sliced strawberries on it and then put it in a Panini maker, I have a George Foreman and thats just as good.

I have also spread a little on dried apricots, my friend likes it with Bananas, you can use it to flavor ice cream, I have put it on all kinds of stuff. I am thinking of making a cake and spreading it between the two layers of chocolate cake, then topping that off with strawberries.

Its heaven in a bottle, honest !

NewFLGal - check out our Nutella discussion on Page 2 of "When No One Is Around Foods" - it's throughout the page - lots of good suggestions there!

Of course Nutella is best eaten directly from the jar

I first had this years ago in Europe - at breakfast, on fresh hot rolls with a nice cup of coffee! Talk about a slice of heaven.

This is a great dessert item. My kids love eating it with fresh fruit (apples, pears, etc) and my son loves diping marshmellows in it. Fondue without melting! It is also great to bake with - I like using it as a filling in sandwich cookies. I also like it with pretzels! Or, straight from the jar...and it needs no refrigeration!

I have to try the pound cake recipe, though! That sounds too good.
