The 6 Most Amazing Ways to Eat Nutella

Updated on March 31, 2012

I’ll just start off by saying that I haven’t always been such a lover of Nutella. In fact, it wasn’t until this last year that I even had the nerve to try the heavenly stuff it at all. I was never a big fan of nuts and chocolate so the idea of hazelnut chocolate spread didn’t really appeal to me at all.

Then one day while shopping in Costco, my roommate picked up a huge double pack of the brown stuff. I never knew that he was such big fan. One day a couple of weeks later I was poking around in our kitchen for something to snack on. There was nothing to be found but some stale cereal and a half jar of Nutella. I don’t know what made me try it, whether it was fate or just the fact that I was a little stoned and down to eat anything but this was a revolutionary day for me. I'd found my new favorite snack and since then we have been inseparable.

What follows are some of my findings upon further research into the nectar of the gods: NUTELLA!!!

RAW DOG: The way that I first tried Nutella and still my all time to favorite way to eat it is just straight out of the jar with a spoon. It’s the perfect combination of the deliciousness of eating a half melted chocolate bar in a much less messy way.

You don’t even need to use the spoon if you don’t want but if the jar is shared by several people, no one likes a dirty finger that’s been double dipped into their food so make sure no one else sees you at it!

BLACK AND WHITE TOAST: If you feel like too much of a pig eating it right out of the jar but you still have a sweet tooth to soothe then black and white toast is right for you. You take a piece of toasted bread and spread Nutella on half of it.For the other half, you take a jar of your favorite honey and layer it on there. This method works particularly well with spun honey that has a meatier texture and is white (thus the name black and white toast).

MONKEY STYLE: While almost all fruits that I have tried with Nutella are excellent, there is nothing better than a banana. If your Nutella jar has been sitting in the sun, it will probably be the right consistency to simply dip and enjoy. However, if your jar has been in a closet or sitting out with the top off, chances are that you will just break off the banana in the jar if you try to dip so you may need the help of a spoon or knife to enjoy. Its definitely worth the effort though!

PBN&B: This one is kind of similar to Monkey Style but a step up. You start with two toasted slices of your favorite bread. Spread one piece with Nutella and the other with peanut butter. Then the cou di gras you slice a banana onto the bread and close the sandwich. Much better than anything Elvis ever came up with.

If only this was allowed as an airplane carry-on.  Damn you 9-11!!

THE FRENCHMEN: This dish takes a little longer to prepare than most people want to take to make a snack but its well worth the time it takes to cook. You start with a crepe; if you have your own recipe that’s great, if not then check out my other articles for a delicious one. Once you have your warm crepe, you spread a dollop of Nutella on it. At this point you can add what ever you want, I find that strawberries or lemon juice make great additions.Whatever you like!

BLENDED AND COLD:There can be no better way to cool down on a hot summer day than with a Milkshake. Take some vanilla ice cream and throw it in a blender with several spoonfuls of Nutella and some milk…wala…Milkshake

      I agree the spoon is the preferred method as it is fast and needs no prep time. However, I think you missed the 2nd best method. Homemade ice cream with a cup of Nutella added (and then maybe some more used as a topping). MMmmm. Gotta go get me some now.

      Funny hub, and I like the pics, especially the wishful thinking carry-on luggage! Mmm, Nutella. Good for pretzel dipping too.
