Healthier Swaps: Dark Chocolate Dreams for Nutella
Updated: Sep 8, 2020
I don’t specifically remember the first time I tried Nutella, but I’m sure it was a glorious day. That chocolate hazelnut spread is just so darn delicious! Unfortunately, it leaves some things to be desired in terms of nutrition. It’s high in sugar and doesn’t exactly provide you with many needed nutrients.
Enter Peanut Butter & Co’s Dark Chocolate Dreams. It's the perfect substitute! This spread is just as chocolatey and delicious, but it provides so much more in terms of nutrients. It’s a peanut butter base rather than hazelnut, so if you love that peanut butter and chocolate combination, you need to try this!
Let’s compare the nutrition labels of these two products to check out the differences. As you can see below, Dark Chocolate Dreams has less calories, saturated fat, carbohydrates and sugar while containing more protein and fiber. Because of the protein and fiber, it’s going to make you feel fuller and more satisfied longer. That sounds good to me!
I generally spread this on two slices of whole grain toast as a tasty breakfast. You could also get creative and use it in recipes that calls for peanut butter to add a chocolate component as well. Let all of your chocolate peanut butter dreams come true!
