It doesn't matter if you spread your Nutella on a piece of bread or if you spread it on a crepe; the chocolate hazelnut spread is great either way.

According to the Washington Post, it used to be hard to come by in American stores but is now widely available in supermarkets and big-box retailers.

Since its introduction to the America, Nutella has become a popular dessert and cookery ingredient. However, does it differ from the Nutella jars offered in Europe?

Enthusiasts of the spread Nutella claim that there are distinctions. The European version of Nutella is less sweet and has more hazelnuts, according to Serious Eats.

According to Webster, when a scoop of both is removed from the jar, the European variety is noticeably firmer than the American variety.

Sugar, palm oil, hazelnuts, chocolate, skim milk, and vanillin (an artificial flavor) are all included in both the European and American versions.

According to Serious Eats, the components are comparable when comparing labels. But he two jars may differ in terms of their hazelnut and milk levels.

The Italian recipe has 13% hazelnuts and 5% milk. And Americanized one? According to Serious Eats, it does not indicate.

Still, the packaging guarantees that each 13-ounce jar contains more than 50 hazelnuts.

However, most people agree that Nutella is excellent, regardless of whether the jar was designed for the European or American market.
