I finally had a chance to pick some up while visiting my parents for the weekend. Great find...thanks for the info!

I'd bring a few cartons back with me, but they probably wouldn't survive the train ride

Hah, youve probably done it before.

Though, that would be quite a feat. You must have some high temp brain, cause that much that fast would go straight to the dome for me.

Nope. The best I've done so far is a half gallon in about 45 minutes. I figure doubling it would make it much more challenging near the end.

All right, I was having a seriously shitty time today... Until I got home from Costco with some vanilla ice cream, and...

... and...

... and...

... and....


Nutella!


Wow. I wish I had thought of that before. Nutella is a sugar-packed hazelnut/chocolate spread, and it tastes amazing on the ice cream. It has sort of the consistency of a thick chocolate pudding, but if you let it sit on the ice cream for a little while, it hardens up and forms a hard chocolate shell over it (sort of like the Smucker's chocolate syrup). This is a much sweeter alternative to almond butter, though I'd still pick the almond butter if I were looking for a creamier, fattier texture.


Nutella is 860 calories per dollar at Costco. Yes, I measure my cheat foods in calories per dollar!
