The hazelnut is your friend

Getting nowhere with the ladies, guys? Develop a taste for Nutella.

Seriously. In six trips to the grocery store in three weeks, I’ve seen five jars coming off the shelf, and each of those five was being bought by a lovely young(ish) woman. (The suffix because, well, I’m a poor judge of age.) Voilà: Instant Topic of Conversation.

You’re welcome.

    On the one hand, I’ve been curious about Nutella since I don’t think I’ve ever tried it. On the other hand, I’ve never been sufficiently motivated to go looking for it, since it’s not in the same aisle as the peanut butter. On the gripping hand, if I were still single this might very well provide the motivation…

    But on the smacking-me-upside-the-head hand, I’m not still single.

    At the store I visited most recently, it’s right above the peanut butter.

    I just checked for a comparison of carbs in a serving of Nutella vs. Jif, since we’re back to counting carbs at Castle McGehee.

    Jif has 7 grams of carbohydrates per serving, while Nutella has 23. So, the smacking-me-upside-the-head hand still wins.

    Hey, almond butter beats both: it’s 6g, or 2% of daily value!
    [and that’s what i love-love-love]
