2.Glass bottle instead of plastic
3.Sunflower oil vs palm oil
I was excited to receive this bottle from Italy and I was expecting it to blow Nutella out of the water.
However, after my first taste, I did not prefer it over Nutella. I cannot describe the taste but I am assuming its the sunflower oil since all the
other ingredients are the same. Sometimes, an organic product will taste different and not in a desirable way.
Whatever it is, I like the Nutella much better. I put both spreads on different crepes and when "testing" both, I found the Nutella creamier and richer in chocolate taste. I am certainly disappointed that Nutella tastes better due to the above list but I will try some other spreads, hoping to find an organic hazelnut that satisfies.
It tastes delicious alone, or on toast or fruit. Putting it on something that is already sweet will give it that "too sweet" taste.
However you prefer it, as my grandmother used to say, - Mangiare!
(I can't wait to try it with a warm croissant).
Note: I recently ordered this product during the winter. What I have found is that being in the cold changed its consistency. It became less creamy and more solid and it retained that consistency even after it returned to room temperature. It's still good, but it does change the taste somewhat.
The organically farmed ingredients in this spread are:
- cane sugar (NOT HFCS, a definite advantage)
- hazelnut paste
- sunflower oil (I love sunflower oil as an alternative)
- milk powder
- cocoa powder
- cocoa butter
- vanilla extract
The one ingredient that's not listed as organically farmed is sunflower lecithin (which in this case is probably added as a preservative or emulsifier).
As for taste, in my opinion, it tastes pretty much exactly like Nutella. It's very sweet, chocolaty, and really smooth and creamy (like Nutella); and also like Nutella, it has a nice, hazelnut flavor.
The one difference that I noted (besides the organic ingredients), is that the oil doesn't separate like it does in Nutella, so you won't have to worry about stirring.
I always have my doubts when it comes to, "healthy" versions of junk food; I've been disappointed more times than I can say (and wasted a lot of money in the process, too). But this product of Italy is definitely worth the money to spend as a healthy alternative to Nutella.
