The Casting Dock

My latest obsession

I blame Jerry. 100%.

I literally had pretzels with nutella for dinner two nights ago. With some honeydew melon to, ya know, “balance it out.” I had nutella on crepes for breakfast and more nutella with pretzels as a snack. And I very nearly smeared some over my chocolate ice cream last night just because…why the hell not?

It’s getting dangerously close to out of control.

My favorite part is that it bills itself as a healthy hazelnut spread with skim milk and a hint of cocoa when the first ingredient is sugar for heaven’s sake. It’s more like hot fudge with a couple ground up nuts mixed in. But that’s clearly not stopping me. Ignorance may be bliss but complete awareness, when wholly disregarded, is pretty awesome too.

no lie, i yell at the “mother” in the commercial each time it comes on. “And just a hint of cocoa!” give me a break.

ITS CHOCOLATE SPREAD, lady! Of COURSE your kids will eat things like whole grain bread if you spread chocolate over it. i’d eat dirt if you spread nutella all over it.

They need a different name. You know, one that is appetizing.

I love Jenna’s comments!!!
I’m glad you are married so Jerry gets blamed and not me. This nutella stuff is really the hot fudge of your high school basketball days in disguise!!!
Over veggies ?

As your husband, I humbly accept the duty to always eat a greater portion of the Nutella jar than you, thereby lessening the psychological and physical impact of this new obsession. Marriage = sacrifice.

I blame the city of Bevelry.
