Nutella for Breakfast? Sure, Thanks to MommyParties

I'd heard a lot of talk about Nutella on twitter- mostly from people who seem to love it. But, I had never tried it until recently.

MommyParties sent me a party pack with Nutella samples and coupons, tumbler mugs, nutella spreaders, breakfast tips and other info cards for guests, as well as a jar of Nutella to use in recipes.

The idea behind this MommyParty was that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that a little Nutella could encourage your kids to eat breakfast. A little, like 1-2 tablespoons.  I wouldn't just hand my kids the jar of Nutella and let them have at it.

A little Nutella on a whole-grain waffle or English muffin might make them more likely to eat their breakfast: you can then top the Nutella with fresh fruit. 

Another idea, one that I made and shared, is to spread a whole wheat tortilla with Nutella and then put fruit on it and roll it up. Dried fruit like cherries and apricots were suggested, but I tried it with fresh strawberries and it was a hit!

I've also made Nutella cookies- not that this has anything to do with breakfast, but they are SO GOOD.  Another way to enjoy Nutella is with pita chips. Someone on twitter suggested cinnamon sugar pita chips, but I used salted one and love the combination of the salty and the sweet.

Just a few facts about Nutella:
  • There are more than 50 hazelnuts in one jar of Nutella spread
  • Nutella does not contain peanuts or peanut ingredients, nor does it come in contact with peanuts during manufacturing.
  • Nutella dos not contain any ingredients derived from gluten containing cereal

Have you tried Nutella? What do you think of it? How do you use Nutella?

You can click here to get a $1.00 off coupon for Nutella.

Thank you to MommyParties for sending me a Nutella party kit. All opinions are my own and I was under no obligation to blog about this.

I grew up with nutella. It was the Italian breakfast of choice. My grandfather continued to eat it until just before he died in his 80's. Now, it is my go to indulgence. Love love love. :)

I discovered that in Paris! I love it! While I would actually like to immerse myself inside the jar like your son did, I haven't...yet.

I love Nutella. I like it spread on a croissant. Unfortunately that doesn't really fit into my current eating plan.

I just discovered Nutella in the last few months and I LOVE it... I can't keep it in the house or I eat it all straight from the jar with a spoon!

Hubby ate it when he was a kid and lived in Germany. My boys love it. Hubby always ate it on regular bread... bleck. I just can't eat it that way. We (me and the boys) like it in crepes, on pancakes, or on graham crackers. :)

The first time I had Nutella was my junior year in high school. I brought it back from Paris and no one else knew what it was.

Given a choice, I would so eat it right out of the jar! But I love it on toast.

My husband loves it right out of the jar!

I discovered Nutella through my French hubby. We slap some on a slice of crusty, French bread. Makes the most fabulous breakfast EVER!!!!

My best friend in fourth grade's parents were from Australia and she always brough Nutella sandwiches to school for lunch. I wasn't a fan in 4th grade, and since then I haven't tried it again.

When I was on my way to "study" in Australia for 6 months, we stopped in Figi. My first breakfast, I liberally spread on what I thought was Nutella. Come to find out after the first bite....it was Vegemite! GROSS.

I seriously feel like the last person on earth who hasn't tried Nutella. I'll have to put it on my shopping list so I can remember to pick some up next time! And thanks for the link to the coupon!!!

I admit, I'm not a Nutella fan.

I'm quite the societal outcast.

I could eat Nutella every day, with pancakes, in a cookie, straight out of the jar.........if Nutella is involved, I'm in! Yum!

I am one who raves about Nutella on Twitter. I oh, so love it. I gave up sweets for Lent so Nutella & I are on break. Not a Ross & Rachel kinda break. Cold turkey, no Nutella.
Okay, I need to stop talking about the Nutella. Good stuff, glad you are on the team.
