I was a Nutella fan. I can still remember those days when I used to hoard them from whenever I went to Hong Kong to bring home to the Philippines (when I was still living there) as it was not yet available on the local market at that time. I so loved it that it became a mainstay in my pantry.
Well, those were the days. Nutella is now history, as I found a better alternative. With this though, I also had to say goodbye to my fave Nutella Crepe. But it’s okay.
Almost a year ago, I discovered Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter.
I must admit however, that it is not as creamy as Nutella. But it is NOT also anywhere close to the overwhelmingly sweet taste of Nutella. Nutella’s sugar content is 21 g as compared to Justin’s 7 g.
I’ve changed for the better when it comes to my consumption of anything decadent and sweet. Justin’s is a staple in my pantry but it definitely is not a part of my daily diet. I think there comes a stage in one’s life when you need to make a decision and opt for what’s better for you.
