Moana Saves had a Nutella Party!

On Saturday, March 19th, we, the bloggers here at Moana Saves, threw a party courtesy of the folks at Nutella!  It was as much fun as several women who run away from their families on a Saturday night in a bar-less town can have.  We ate . . . a lot of Nutella and had fun talking about grown-up stuff.  Nutella sent us a large box of goodies, some of which was a 26 oz jar of the good stuff, Nutella spreaders (complete with a curve at the end to accommodate the ridges of the bottom of the Nutella jar--woot!), a few other Nutella branded items and some info about Nutella Hazelnut Spread.

For instance, did you know that there are more than 50 hazelnuts in a 13 oz jar of Nutella hazelnut spread?  And did you know that Nutella does not contain peanuts or peanut ingredients, nor does the product come in contact with peanuts during manufacturing?  We learned all this and more (like Nutella is gluten-free and Kosher!).  (And we ate Nutella on homemade waffles topped with banana slices, see on the right? but I digress).  Probably the most important thing we learned as women trying to feed our families a balanced breakfast to send them off in the morning is that a slice of whole wheat toast with Nutella hazelnut spread, a serving of fresh fruit and a cup of yogurt or 1% milk provides balanced nutrition to start the day.  Which basically goes along with my personal affirmation: Nutella in moderation, Nutella in moderation . . .
Mahalo nui loa to the folks at Nutella for giving us a chance to get together and eat Nutella (in moderation)!  Check out the Nutella website for nutritional info on my favorite hazelnut spread, Nutella sweepstakes and a $1 off Nutella coupon!

And hey--

if anyone else wants to send us big boxes of treats so we can have another party, you can email me at moanasaves at gmail dot com because we're fair like that . . .
