Since there have been unsettling articles about Nutella in the news, I decided to see if I could come up with an acceptable substitute. I bought 32 ounces of walnut pieces and a bar of dark chocolate (85% cocoa) at my local Aldi's. Put them in the blender and ran it till I had a smooth paste. Then I blended in 2 cups of honey, (not the cheap stuff either, that's produced in a factory). I came up with about 4 cups of dark chocolate walnut butter. It goes well on a cracker and it's smooth enough to squeeze from a Coghlan's tube. No pictures, sorry. I'm old school. Disclaimer; I have no affiliation with Aldi's or Coghlan's

They do not allow me to buy Nutella. I was told that it is only for white people.

Nutella is made by Monsanto on the AO production line.

Jiff, 'cause I'm a choosy Muth... I mean, Mother. I think that Jiff canned that particular slogan because it was just too easy to co-opt it.

Costco was giving samples of Nutella on toast today when I went in for lunch, I mean, to sample the products to see if I wanted to buy anything they were giving samples of. I eventually got 2 samples. It was much sweeter than I remembered. I may try the version mentioned above. I need to cut down on the peanut butter.

Last night I made a new batch of my walnut butter. 2 pounds of walnuts, a big bar of dark chocolate, 2 cups of honey, a food processor and a little elbow grease rewarded me with 3 pints of chocolate goodness.

I agree, and it will carry in a squeeze tube for a hike.
