You’ve Been Eating Nutella All Wrong

You’ve Been Eating Nutella All Wrong

Very important news, here.

What’s the best thing to have for breakfast in the morning? If you answered anything other than a thick spread of gooey Nutella on some crisp white toast, you were wrong. 

The hazelnut and chocolate spread is an indulgent start to any day, and sometimes we are guilty of just getting a massive serving spoon, carving out a sizeable dollop, and just snacking on that when we’re peckish.

The best way to eat Nutella, obviously (

But it seems we’ve been eating our favourite spread all wrong, according to one user on Reddit.

Going by the username UD_Ramirez, they posted on Reddit’s r/LifeProTips page a tip that is likely to change your Nutella eating habits forever.

My girlfriend taught me this. I found it hard to believe at first but it works time and time again,” they wrote.

“If you only take from the centre of the Nutella jar, the thickness of the Nutella stuck to the glass will pull it down. This will cause the sides to be perfectly clean by the next day.

“I suspect it is because of the cohesion of the Nutella pulling down the remains, and/or the thickness keeping the residue from drying out and sticking to the glass.

“Either way, I was surprised to see her trick works really well. No endless scratching to get the remains out by the end, except for the very bottom.”

Our minds are completely blown. No longer will we have to hold a jar upside down and scrape with the edge of a knife to get the rest of the rich, chocolatey goodness.

While the post is from a US-based user, a British Redditor confirmed that this works on the Blighty brand of Nutella.

It should be noted that some countries have slightly different ingredients in their Nutella, due to food regulations and preferences.

A user with the handle SkiingGod wrote: “This works on UK Nutella. At uni, my weapon of choice was a full on dessert spoon. All you need to adjust is the ambient temp. I'd say 16C was enough for the UK stuff.”

We’re thinking about getting an extra large jar…just for research purposes…
