{review} Hershey’s Spreads

Back in December, I was lucky enough to be selected to “Sample and Share” a product on Crowdtap – a product I *knew* I would love – Hershey’s Spreads. Basically, it’s Hershey’s version of Nutella, at least the one I received (Chocolate with Hazelnut). I’m not sure if everyone received the same flavor (or if there is even more than I flavor) but I know mine was SO good.

I went through a phase about a year ago where I ate Nutella on toast for breakfast every single day for two weeks. TWO WEEKS.

With this new Hershey’s Spread, I’m afraid to say that I am back in that phase. It’s just so delicious. Chocolate-y, nutty, smooth spread. No grit to be tasted. Now if I can just get over the fat content! (I’ll be writing a post soon on my New Year’s Resolution – yes, it’s late, I’m sorry 😦 – to eat healthier and exercise more. No outrageous “I must exercise every single day” goals, just a realistic “exercise more”.) Edited to add: Nope, sorry, didn’t happen.

Unfortunately, Hershey’s Spread isn’t available at my local grocery store, so when I run out I have three options:

1) go back to Nutella (which I would not complain about)

2) order Hershey’s spread from somewhere online (I’m *sure* Amazon has it – I just checked  – they do)

3) get back to being health-conscious and limit my fat and calories

I’ll be honest: I’ll probably be boring and choose 3.

Have you tried Hershey’s Spreads? How about Nutella or a store-brand? Do you have a favorite?
