For example, if you insist on buying Advil instead of store brand ibuprofen. I mean, you’d be wasting your money in that example, but you do you

    Nutella,

    I only buy it once or twice a year but no other chocolate spread tastes nearly as good.

      That’s because it isn’t a chocolate spread, but rather a nut and nougat spread.

        It has 13% hazelnut, the same as many other brands, but also the lowest amount I can buy. There’s a really pricy one that has 30%

      It actually has very little chocolate in it, that’s why. It was made (i think) during WW2 when chocolate was in short supply, so they came up with a way to stretch it, by mixing a bunch of hazelnuts (and w/e else is in there) with it.

      The Kraft one isn’t half bad

      But then note I said “isn’t half bad”, not that it’s great. But I’d say it works in a pinch, or if it’s on sale…

      I live in France and there are lots of brands that are exactly like Nutella, or even more tasty. Nutella is cheaper yet.

      I used to agree but after finding Kirkland hazelnut spread at costco i’ve switched to that. Its palm oil free and every bit as delicious as nutella.

      The Kirklands one is good, but doesn’t hold an emulsion. And trying to stir a 3000 litre tub of “hazelnut spread” to re-emulsify it isn’t on my list of desirable morning activities.
