Peanut Butter, Vegemite and tomato on toasted rye bread with a twist of black pepper!

Nutella and marmalade on a warm scone... makes my liver sweat just thinking about it.

If they could just take that Speculoos paste, shape and press it into a cookie or biscuit type of thing they might have somethin... oh never mind...

Home made speculoos butter made of original dandoy biscuits.

Expensive if you can't get the dandoy speculoos directly from Belgium.

"Natural' peanut butter on rice cakes. And by "natural" I think they mean no added sugar. And a tall glass of skim milk.

Jam has lots of added sucrose (table sugar) and fructose, which can't be metabolized very easily by the liver and is often stored as intramuscular triglycerides. I'd take Nutella any day over that. As for on food while riding, I'd be curious as to how people think that the simple sugar and moderate amount of fat in nutella is dfferent than say, a Clif Bar, which is brown rice syrup smothered over oats. I'd rather have nutella on a fast digesting piece of white bread than any commercially available energy bar any day of the week.

Generic, organic white bread+some natural PB+maple syrup= my food of choice for longer rides. Quick digesting, won't bloat, decent sugars, a bit of fat, and easily passes through the gut.

There's more healthy choco creams compared to Nutella (see Palm Oil), at least in Italy.

Nutino uses vegetable oil instead of palm (I believe)

Micky's right. There are way better alternatives to Nutella, which is just pure junk.

From Italy you've got Caffarel, just to beginn from.

I like their "Crema Gianduja al Latte"

Available from that german website :

(don't know where to get it from an italian website, I'm more used to deal with Germany).

My personal favorite is not italian, it's german and it's called "Grasshof". That's so good I could eat one jar at one time unfortunately. Lot's of versions to choose from, I've tried almost all of them. My favorite is "Capuccino".

Those rare times I treat myself, I would go for this (no, Im not that smart, Ive been suggested as well from others! :D ); Nutella has only 13% of hazelnuts, while this one has 45% and no generic vegetable oils.

Nutella! On anything and everything. Yes, highly addictive...
