I have always found Nutella to be flavorless; just not chocolatey enough. I have been told that the Italian version is more flavorful. Making your own seems like a good way to go.

I am a chocolate sommelier and I never even consider Nutella. The ingredients are not well sourced and quite frankly the taste fails for me no matter what they do with their percentages. I love Amedei Toscana Crema Olive Oil. Made in Tuscany with only 5 ingredients it is heaven in a jar! Hazelnut, extra virgin olive oil, cocoa mass, cocoa and vanilla. I sell out every time I have a pop up shop at $17 a jar. Or as the author states, make your own. But may I add that you can also change the taste of your homemade spread by the origin of your cacao. Like wine or coffee, the taste of your chocolate spread will change from the origin of your cacao. Try to find smaller craft bean-bar-makers who have relationships with the cacao farmer and pay a living wage. An example of where to buy is Askinosie, or Map Chocolate. Some cacao has spicy notes and others more nutty and caramel notes. Also citrus notes too.

I know a lot of people love it but I've never have been a fan. It's just too sweet for me and now it's probably even sweeter. I'll stick with plain nut butter.
