Mommy Parties: Nutella

Shortly after I moved here 6 years ago, my German neighbor invited a few of us over for coffee.  She served a delicious roll that was like heaven.  I told her I wanted the recipe and she laughed and said it was the easiest thing--that it was just Nutella spread on Crescent Rolls.  I guess Nutella has been very popular in Europe for years.  If you like chocolate, you will LOVE Nutella--it really tastes like a chocolaty spread with a consistency similar to peanut butter.

I tell you, I was hooked, especially after knowing all I know about how good nuts are for you.  So, when the opportunity arose to host a Mommy Party featuring Nutella, I rushed to sign up.

Nutella is something that makes breakfast or snack great in my house.  After buying Nutella and making rolls for my daughters, they loved it, too.  One day, they requested the rolls but we didn't have any so they asked for it on toast.  I thought it sounded good so I smeared it on our favorite whole grain toast and it was DELICIOUS!  Since then, we have spread it on pancakes, muffins, and waffles, too.  You can even add a few sliced strawberries to make it extra tasty.  We have even mixed it with a bit of peanut butter and the kids think it tastes like a peanut butter cup!  The kids think they are getting a treat, I know they are getting good nutrition!

Anyway, everyone at the party LOVED Nutella.  I was really surprised that people hadn't heard about Nutella, but I guess a few years ago, I hadn't either.  They also loved their new travel mugs but were especially excited about the coupon.  One mother told me she let her son (who could not attend the party) try it and he loved it.  She said she picked some up already using her coupon.  

Here is some information about Nutella:
  • Each 13oz jar of Nutella contains more than 30 hazelnuts
  • Nutella does not contain any hydrogenated oil or trans fat
  • It doesn't contain any artificial colors or preservatives
  • It does not contain peanuts or come into contact with peanuts during manufacturing.
If you are interested in learning more about Nutella, visit www.NutellaUSA.com.  You can also find a $1 off coupon right now.  Priced at about $3.49 (I have found it less at Target), this is a great deal!

Disclosure:  As a member of Mommy Parties, I received a Nutella Party Kit to share with my friends.  I did not receive any compensation for this post.
