Soo good. I did not know if i could throw another brand name under the bus so i covered it in my side by side comparison photo. On the left is a certain hazlenut spread we all know and loved growing up, much lighter in color than the vegan Nutiva alternative. As you can see in the ingredients, there is much more cocoa in Nutiva, as it is the 2nd ingredient in this version, where as the traditional verson it's the 5th ingredient. Because of the high cocoa content, you need much less of the product to get your chocolate fix, so it will last you longer and leave you more satisfied with less sugar.
I realize I may be in the minority here. A lot of people describe this as a "next best thing" sort of option, when you want Nutella, but are settling for a healthier option. I disagree, I like Nutiva's dark chocolate spread way better, full stop. I admit that my reasons for liking it are probably similar to the reasons others might not-- Nutiva is not as sweet (a plus in my book, since I find Nutella cloyingly sweet), and the dark chocolate taste is nice and intense (again, a plus for me, since I prefer the taste of 70%-80%-90% dark chocolate). I also always drain out the separated oil from the top when I first open a jar, and I find it improves both taste and texture. It makes for a less greasy/oily/runny/flaxy spread, and what remains is just nice, thick, creamy, and chocolatey. I mostly eat it on whole grain toast, and it's a fabulous treat that never disappoints.
This is delicious! I couldn't be more pleased that it actually tastes like dark chocolate and hazelnuts (as opposed to just sugar). It's always nice to see natural brands creating high-quality, organic versions of mainstream products. I love that this also has some benefits with the added chia and flaxseed oils.I'm not one to eat sugar and the dark chocolate is still very sweet to me, but it's delicious spread on gluten free toast, and especially pumpkin bread. If you're a sweet tooth, you might find this "bitter" or "too nutty" but it's the most perfect hint of sweetness and chocolate for me!
Switched from Nutella due to milk content. This has lower sugar but is still tasty, and we can have one jar in our house instead of two (one for vegans and one for non vegans). 7 year old likes it just as much as the Nutella, which is surprising considering how much less sugar it has, but he usually has it in his morning oatmeal with PB2 powder (trying to get him some extra calories in there but in a healthy way). It's also good on toast, but little guy will eat it on strawberries, ice cream, just about anything you let him put it on.Read a few reviews about runny or rancid taste, and I've never found that, and we've been through quite a few jars (it's a monthly subscription item for our house). Hoping it was a fluke that's been dealt with but we've never had those issues. I do find that sometimes there's a bit of oil that rises to the top, and if you don't stir it back in by the end of the jar it can become drier (as you're using the oil up unevenly). If it does this, just stir it back in and it'll be good the whole way through the jar. Really glad we switched, since our last brand wasn't organic, non GMO, or vegan.
tastes great if a little bland. I use it like a frosting on either paleo toast or just bread. I found lightly sprinkling my pink salt on the bread first, then spread, then lightly again with the salt, supper punches up the flavor. It's like the salted caramel thing, sounds questionable then you taste it and are like, wow, this is really good, how come it wasn't always made this way? type of thing.the negative aspect of this review, the bottle looks nice but is a total pain to get all the spread out without making a HUGE -sticks like glue to everything- MESS, and I wish the size was just a standard pint like all other nut butters.
We used to be nutella addicts, but when looking for a "healthier" alternative came across this spread. We love it! To us it tastes more earthy and not as sweet as nutella. Not sure if it is the cocoa or the nuts but either way the taste is really good. It reminds me of a dark chocolate candy bar with hazelnuts. The spread is a little runnier than nutella but we fined it is easier to spread. Good value as an add-on-item. If you are looking for an alternative give this a try!
