WAG’s been on the receiving end of a number of new products of late – and one that surprised us was Once Again Nut Butter’s new Amoré spreads.
Used to the ubiquitous hazelnut spread known as Nutella, we were happy to sample a new specialty item, an organic, non-GMO and Fair Trade-certified spread that comes in hazelnut and almond varieties.
Here’s how the advance materials describe the products:
“Introducing Amoré Spread Hazelnut with Cocoa & Milk and Amoré Spread Almond with Cocoa & Milk. Named after that undeniable feeling of ‘true love’ that comes with every bite…this personal indulgence (is) so creamy and delectable, the whole jar may disappear right before your eyes.”
The specifics continue:
“Amoré Spread Hazelnut: Featuring all the sweet, buttery taste of roasted hazelnuts that you know and crave, this spread is made with just-the-right-amount of chocolatey decadence and clocks in at only 170 calories per serving.
“Amoré Spread Almond: Our friend the almond marries well to partner cocoa in the market’s first certified organic, chocolate-almond spread. It’s only 160 calories and deliciously rich, but not so rich you can’t keep eating it.”
We were surprised by the texture, more syrupy than spread – but that’s by design:
“Once Again Nut Butter’s Amoré Spreads feature a uniquely smooth and fondue-like consistency that’s perfect for turning everyday staples into sweet treats. Think beyond toast and use Amoré as a dip for berries and fruit, top biscotti, swap it in for frosting, or drizzle it over frozen yogurt. Made with 30-percent less sugar than leading brands and completely free of cholesterol and trans fat, the product’s clean ingredient list and velvety texture are not the only things that make it unique to market.”
Something to consider when planning out your holiday treats.
Once Again Nut Butter’s Amoré Spreads ($9.95 for a 12-ounce jar) are sold in local co-ops and natural food stores, as well as online.
