I love World Market. Lately, they’ve been adding their own products to those that they sell. I’ve yet to try their chocolate bars, but their Hazelnut Cocoa Spread has been a friend of mine for a while now. But when I went to buy a new jar, I found this one in its place. (At the time, they didn’t have a new spread that wasn’t “crunchy,” but they now do.) Would it be as good? I worried.
It is. Although the design is different, the ingredients are much the same, except that this one has real vanilla instead of artifical. The old spread was just like a hazlenut truffle filling, but this is less thick and more butter-like. It loses a little richness, yet that makes it more suitable for everyday. I wasn’t too excited about the pieces of hazelnut, but they’re a nice addition. Again, they turn it into a spread that won’t lose its charm after the initial excitement.
Whether on toast, bagels, crepes, or chips (both potato and tortilla — I was in a creative mood), this spread passed the test. Maybe it’s because of belief that hazelnut and chocolate were born for each other. Still, I think many people will be glad to have a chance to have chocolate for breakfast.
