If there was a competition between Nutella and Peanut Butter, who do you think would win? When it comes to taste, I would definitely choose Nutella: chocolate and hazelnut combination is just too hard to beat. However, I try not to buy it too often because I have little self control when it comes to this luscious spread.
Last week during my 16 mile training walk for Avon Breast Cancer walk in May, Sarah informed me that Nutella is actually pretty comparable when it comes to calories to peanut butter. Now, I've known Sarah for only a few weeks and have no reason not to believe her, but I wanted to be absolutely sure! So I went to the store and bought a jar of Nutella: strictly for research purposes.
The label below is for peanut butter, the last two photos are for Nutella. OMG, Sarah was right! Turns out that the same serving size has the same amount of calories for both Nutella and PB. Nutella even has fewer calories from fat! (It does, however, have more sugar).
And so, now I will not feel as bad about eating Nutella. In fact, I had some of it last night with apple slices. It's also great on white bread with Granny Smith apple and toasted nuts as a sandwich. Or simply on a spoon!
