What’s a good substitute for Nutella?
The answer depends on why you want an alternative to the popular hazelnut and cocoa spread.
Maybe you’re vegan and don’t want the skimmed milk in Nutella? Then go for vegan alternatives. We created a list of vegan alternatives to Nutella, recommended by vegans themselves. You may just find a dairy-free substitute that ensures you don’t miss the nutty flavour in Nutella.
Maybe you’re not vegan, but you hate the fact that Nutella is not really chocolate, that it’s mostly sugar and palm oil with very little cocoa powder? You’ll find palm oil free alternatives with higher cocoa content that are legally labeled as chocolate spread.
Or, like a few others, you refuse to fall for the ‘hype’ around Nutella, but still want a decent regular chocolate spread?
Whatever is your reason for wanting a good substitute for Nutella, we curated some options that may inspire you.
