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!)
