Peanut Butter and Nutella: A new lunch sensation?

Nutella and Jif

What to make the kids for lunch? The week usually starts out with cold cuts and ends with a peanut butter or Nutella sandwiches. My neighbor’s son introduced us to Nutella and peanut butter sandwiches. Interesting, I thought… The next day my daughter asks me for this new combo and we have created a new favorite lunch item. You never know where you’ll pick up a new tip.

The concept of Nutella and peanut butter is actually not so foreign… I had a flash back to an old 80’s Reeses peanut butter commercial.

I am glad to see Nutella is getting so popular in the USA now. It has been around for ages. In Europe, Nutella was their version of “peanut butter”. You do see peanut butter in Europe now, but Nutella was always the main staple..

Try out the peanut butter and Nutella combo – what do you think?

  1. If you want to cut the sugar (because Jif is a sweetened peanut butter – it also has “fully hydrogenated” oil), you could use Rawtella. More expensive, but the ingredients are way better. But if you’re used to Nutella’s sweetness you may not like it.
