4 of 4 people found the following review helpfulJune 03, 2018Reviewer: Madeline in Ohio* Phenomenal! Nekstella nails it.
I've been doing low carb for many years and I've tried a number of so-called substitutes for Nutella. The cooling effect of the sugar alternative or the texture of the overall spread made it painfully obvious that what I was eating was NOT Nutella--OR a legitimate alternative.
I got a few single serve sample cups of the smooth spread in a monthly snack box and, because of my past experiences with Nutella wannabes, I put them away in the cupboard, unmoved, uninspired.
Two days ago I had a chocolate craving and nothing sugar free in the house. Determined not to break my diet I scoured the shelves for something else to snack on and found the cups.
Well, no harm in trying, I thought. I took a tiny taste from one of the cups and was actually in awe for a moment. This sugar free chocolate hazelnut spread might as well be Nutella. It is indistinguishable in texture, taste, and doesn't have that sugar alcohol cooling effect.
It was so good that I actually went on Amazon to see how much they were selling it for: a pack of two for $17.88 + $4.86 shipping, not eligible for prime. I put that on hold. Came here to order a few things and before check out, thought I'd see if Nekstella was in stock. It is! Wrote this review and added a jar of smooth and of crunchy to my order. Best sugar free Nutella alternative ever!This review is specific to Sugar Free Chocolate Hazelnut Spread, Original
