Nutella & Go!

Oh, what a sweet, sweet treat! This reminds me of a similar product called Yan-Yan that I used to enjoy as a kid. I remember that bringing a Yan-Yan to school elevates your status because all your friends would be crowding around you in the hopes of getting a piece of bread stick dunked in thick chocolate.

Nutella & Go is not a new product. I believe it was released in 2009, but I have only recently seen it in local grocery stores. After sampling a pack, here is what I thought.

What I like:

- Delicious. I might be biased of course - I love Nutella and Ferrero chocolates.
- Cheap thrill. Only about $1.50 a pack.
- Chocolate is thick and creamy. The same consistency you would find in a jar of Nutella spread.
- Convenient. Small enough to fit in lunch boxes, but big in taste.
- Enough chocolate to last (and even outlast) the bread sticks.
- Bread sticks are small enough to dip in the chocolate without breaking them.

What I didn't like:

- 260 calories a pack. Well, this is the price you have to pay for something this good. I imagine I would get more with my usual "spoon out the Nutella from the jar and eat it" ritual so I guess this is worth it. 
- Hard to find in grocery stores. Really? Where are you hiding them?

The Verdict: 

Yes, I will definitely buy them again - if I ever find them! They are great snacks and you won't feel very guilty eating them since there are "bread sticks" with the chocolate (yeah, keep saying that to yourself). Would I recommend them to a friend? Absolutely.
