    Don't you think so?


    I know their global sales is mega huge in billions, but I really don't get it.

    Either of them would probably kill me (I have a severe tree nut allergy) so I definitely agree with you ;)

    Oh gosh. I got to taste Nutella for the first time a good while ago now. Could not agree with you more. I found it pretty disgusting actually. And yeah, don't care for those Rocher chocolates either.

    Never been keen on Nutella (outright disliked Rocher). Never understood the hype around it - just yesterday: been in that super nice pizza shop, what do the neighbors order for dessert? Tasty Tiramisu? No, pizza-dough with Nutella on top of course. Ugh! Poor chef.

    I don't like Rocher. I'm amused at how Nutella has suddenly gone mainstream in the US. I try to stay away from it because it's soooo high in fat and calories, but I can eat it by the spoonful. Mostly I like it the old fashioned way on a crêpe with bananas. Can't beat that.

    Kind of a random thread. Don't care for Rocher and never tried Nutella.

    I had no idea that mixing Nutella with Ferrero Rocher chocolates was a thing. How do you do that? Do you daub the Nutella on the chocolates? Or do you crush the chocolates and mix them with Nutella? :p

    Ferrero Rocher and Nutella are #3 and #4 on my common man's chocolate list, to be honest, and that's with Nutella being more of a hazelnut spread than anything.

    #1 for me: Timtams (Australia).
    #2 for me: Coffee Crisps (Canada).
    #3 and #4 already mentioned.

    Anything M&M/Mars/Hershey's is a distant 9 billionth on my list.

    To date, nothing beats a TimTam Slammer. ;)

    My grandparents had 10 acres of filbert orchard, and as a kid when I would visit them in the fall my grandmother would make her own version of Nutella, this was long before I had any concept of it as a commercial item and always anticipated a slice of toast covered in ooey goodness.

    As an adult, I'll freely admit that I enjoy both Nutella, Rocher chocolates, or pretty much any other combination of chocolate and filberts (hazelnuts).

    My lord, the sugar content in both of them, off the chart. I USED to like Rocher ..... a lot, but find myself having a sugar crash each time I would inhale two or more. As for Nutella, gag!!

    I am not fond of them either, mainly due to the nutty chocolate flavour. Funny thing is, I love nuts and I love chocolate, but for some reason I just hate them combined. Chocolate with nut flavour like Nutella and Rocher, nutty chocolate icecream, chocolate cake with nuts, chocolate bars with whole nuts, etc. - Hate it.

    Agreed. And I mistook Rocher for those Mon Chéri's (ugh). Loved Rocher as a kid (got them seldomly though), but haven't eaten one eversince too - never missed them either. It's the stuff that your granny would buy for you back in the day.

    Although very different, two products I dislike intensely and never understood the fasination of the Americans and Canadians with Nutella and the British with Marmite.

    I have had Marmite - the brown sticky yeast smelling spread that comes in a dark brown jar. I also gag on that. Some people like it on toast, while some put in tea/plain ole' hot water. It DOES have an interesting taste.

    Not a fan of either. I enjoy my chocolate and nuts separate. Never had a fondness for any kind of sweet that had them combined.

    My kids like nuetella, so meh.

    I don't think either one is considered a premium products so I don't think there is anything to be worry about being underwhelmed., as mentioned, both are mass produced products

    Speaking of overrated - Krispy Kreme. I never understood the hype with their donuts. East Coast thing? I rather go to Winchell's for a glazed or Dunkin' Donut for a blueberry cheese.

    I am lounging at J. Co right now as I type this. Most people in the States who I know are not aware of J. Co yet like they aren't familiar with Viber. It is like a Starbucks for donuts here and didn't get insanely popular until 2013. They have awesome tasting donuts. Much better than KK. The filling inside is addicting. I still haven't got sick of their tiramisu donuts after two years. I order that every time.

    Wow - - I never realized there was such a groundswell of anti-Nutella-ites! :eek:

    (FTR, I love the stuff but eat it sparingly.)

    I can't stand Nutella but the rest of the family likes it, the flip side is I love peanut butter and the rest of the family can't stand it.
