    If you look at the history of peanut butter you can see it is a byproduct of commonly available , cheap product that has subsidies in USA . I understand that lot of our North American members grew up on it and acquired a taste for it.
    Along with Marshall plan goods made in USA were brought to countries that received aid. Powdered milk, rectangular yellow milk product ( can't call it cheese sorry ) and peanut butter were few to be named.
    That was the first time lot of the European countries were introduced to peanut butter . They have been more readily available especially with the large companies like Kraft.
    I dont see Nutella taking over PB in USA but you will more likely to find Nutella or chocolate hazelnut spreads around the world on shelves , this may give you an idea

    so basically Nutella in the USA is what PB is in the rest of the world. Ya never hear of it and rarely see it, but when you try it you're hooked.

    It also pays to remember there's dozens of varieties of peanut butter...from sickly sweet, to straight salty, to almost savory...to powdered chalk. I've had powdered chalk tasting peanut butter, and it's the most disgusting thing ever...like a flour based rue. But a good lightly sweet, lightly salty peanut butter with a decent texture...and a sliced ripe red apple?

    Yep, yep, yep...all week long and multiple times on Sunday.

    Nutella makes me gag. Pure freaking stale sugar on a stick.

    I think it's just too plain out and out sweet for me. Like...cloyingly sweet. It puts me in mind of what eating a clove cigarette might be like for some reason.

    I first tasted it by itself and I thought It tasted like cocoa. Then I looked at the ingredients and look at that, cocoa.

    I put it on toast for the final tasting, no pic sorry - believe it or not I just chowed down and didn't remember. It tasted sweeter on toast. Still had the hint of cocoa though, like a dark chocolate. I think the sugar and cocoa overpower the taste of hazelnut for me.
    Completely different taste than peanut butter - as expected. I'm not head over heals but it's pretty good.

    WHAT are Nutter Butters!? You don't have Nutter Butters up there?
    Good golly Miss Molly!
    PB cookies basically. with PB in the middle. Dunked in milk like an Oreo they are awesome. Dipped in coffee for a morning treat they are awesome. Eaten alone they are crunchy goodness.
