I was first introduced to nutella as a child when I used to get the little plastic tub with a little spoon from the local shop, I was addicted straight away and would get one whenever I could. Now as an adult I buy it by the jar as I love nutella with everything, I tend to go the gym several times a week and this is how I justify eating so much nutella it is my reward for all the hours spent toning and sweating away in the gym :)
I tend to buy my jars of nutella from Costco warehouse where I get a 750gram jar for around £3.55, and as I have three daughters who take after me for their love of chocolate it does tend to only last a fortnight in our house if it makes it that long, the jar I have contains 50 portions for 50 breakfasts.
It is hard to describe the taste of nutella as I have just had a little bit (for reviewing purposes of course) and it is very smooth and you can smell the hazelnuts and cocoa too it really is delicious.
Nutella is a very rich chocolate so although I eat it quite a lot I don't tend to eat a lot in one go as a spoonful is enough and too much could make you feel a little ill. Each 15g portion contains two hazelnuts, some skimmed milk and a little cocoa and so it states on the jar that nutella can be a good option at breakfast time. I have mine on toast and sometimes use it to spread on top of fairy cakes we bake, I have also melted a little bowl in the microwave and served as a dip with chopped and sliced fruit put on cocktails sticks which tastes lovely.
The typical values per 15g portion are as follows:
Energy kcal - 82
Protein - 0.9
Carbohydrates - 8.6
Of which sugars - 8.5

Of which saturates - 1.6

Summary: A lovely smooth tasty spread
