Craving For Inexpensive Alternative To Nutella

2

Lately I’ve been craving for the taste of hazelnut chocolate spread. Nutella automatically pops into your head. The consistency is like the chocolate dip of Yan-Yan sticks but it’s got a sharper nuttier taste to it that just hits home run.

First time I tried hazelnut chocolate spread it was Crumpy Duo. With its white cream mix, it left the hazelnut taste almost unrecognizable. And its consistency was a bit thicker than Nutella. With Nutella being way over priced as usual with everything imported in the Philippines, I began to experiment with different chocolate hazelnut spreads that are a lot cheaper. I came across one called Nusica. It comes in a glass bottle, with the color of its printed paper really dull, so you’ll miss it if you’re not really looking for it. It’s made in Holland which is a country that produces fairly decent if not good chocolate. A 400 gram bottle costs P102 as against a 400 gram bottle of Nutella which costs around P250. The consistency is almost the same, if not as creamy. It has a less prominent hazelnut flavor, but all in all, it’s a lot better than the other chocolate hazelnut spreads available. And you save over P140.

So next time you’re thinking twice about indulging yourself with Nutella, try Nusica. It won’t hurt your pocket, but it will surely satiate your craving.

The Nusica Choco spread is very delicious, I bought mine at goods.ph (https://www.goods.ph/nusica-spread-choco-hazelnut-400g-7644.html), last month because my little brother is very into it. It's more cream than Nutella.
