{CLOSED} Jif Chocolate Hazelnut Spreads – $50 Gift Card & Gift Basket Giveaway

Update: This giveaway is now closed…thanks for your entries. Winner is…Mare, who says “our family will eat it by the spoonful!” Congrats!

Two weeks ago, I was up in Canton for a Savings Nation coupon class. My hotel was 20 minutes from Orrville, OH…and when I figured that out, I emailed my friends at Smuckers and asked if I could come by to say hi! They graciously accepted…we had breakfast, a quick tour of their new headquarters building, and then we stopped at “product row.”

And that’s when I saw it….the jars of what you see above. *swoon*

First question I asked, “How is it different from Nutella?”

The answer…well, the flavor is somewhat different, and the consistency is thicker, more like peanut butter.

I replied with, “That makes sense…because I think Nutella is a bit drippy, and can be messy. From my experience with me.”

I left with a few jars to experiment with…and I made these brownies…that weekend. I took them to a potluck, and they were gone in minutes!

And they were right. Consistency is much thicker, which I do prefer. And the Mocha Cappuccino flavor….well. I may or may not have  eaten  half the jar a few spoonfuls straight outta the jar. #giggle

Before we get to the fun goodies, here are a few ideas for you!

(Quick note – Jif Chocolate Hazelnut spreads are hitting grocery shelves nationwide as we speak…it will be in the peanut butter aisle. As of last week, my store still doesn’t have it stocked. So don’t fret if you don’t see it yet…it’s coming!)

  • Breakfast: Spread on top of toast, waffles or pancakes for a delicious way to start the day.

    I’d use it in my morning oatmeal. Yum! Jiffy has always been the only pb I’ll buy.

  2. Anniegi says

    I love it in baking but my favorite way to eat it (besides by the spoonful!)
    is in a peanut butter, fluff & hazelnut sandwich on 100% whole wheat!

    I think my favorite way to enjoy Chocolate Hazelnut spread would be to spread them on brownies :)

  7. HSmom says

    Hazelnut spread is really good spread atop a Hy-Top chocolate graham cracker or two.

  8. Georgi says

    I love hazelnut spread. I like it on oatmeal, but prefer it straight out of the jar.

  9. Mandy says

    I spread hazelnut with my son’s peanut butter sandwiches, he thinks it’s chocolate and peanut butter! He is very skinny so it’s a great way to boost his calorie intake.

  10. SD Holt says

    One of my favorite things is dark chocolate with hazelnuts chased by coffee so this is right up my alley!

  11. says

    I’ve had Nutella but I didn’t know there were other brands of chocolate hazelnut spread available! I’ll have to look into this because Nutella is really expensive where I live.

    I like it spread on toast, with tea.
