Target Is Selling Mini-Nutella Ornaments For Your Chocolate Christmas Tree

We’ve got good news as your Christmas tree is about to get a whole lot sweeter. Because Target knows what moms want this holiday season (or all year around for that matter), they are selling a new, fun Christmas ornament that you will definitely want to add to your tree’s collection this year. Here’s what you need to know.

According to reports, the giant retailer is selling miniature sized Nutella jars as Christmas tree ornaments. The popular department store has started retailing "Nutellino Christmas Spread." Many fans would agree that they make perfect stocking stuffers for Nutella fans and family. Unfortunately, as of press time, the Nutella tree ornaments can only be purchased at a Target store and are not available online.

“Nutella is a brand of sweetened palm oil spread, flavored with hazelnut and cocoa solids,” according to their brand information. It’s also one of the most popular chocolate spreads in the world. The brand also says, “Nutella is manufactured by the Italian company Ferrero and was first introduced in 1965,” although it was first sold on store shelves in 1963.

Many families love Nutella for its rich, creamy taste and often eat it as a sandwich or as a fruit dip. Some people will even go as far as just using a spoon with the jar itself. Either way, it’s been a kitchen pantry staple and a dessert favorite for several generations on both sides of the pond.

Now, whether or not Nutella is actually healthy for you, remains in question (actually it doesn’t). While some people say that it does contain a small amount of calcium and iron, it’s not very nutritious for you because of its sugar, calories and fat. In addition, Nutella contains sugar, palm oil, hazelnuts, cocoa, milk powder, lecithin, and synthetic vanillin.

With that being said, buying a Nutella tree ornament would be everyone’s best bet this holiday season. It’s pretty to look at it, and better yet, it contains zero calories. We’d advise that you run out and get one (or four or five or six, depending on how big your tree is and your personal craving) before they run out. You can thank us later.
