Do you love the taste of Nutella and you’re looking to satisfy your sweet craving? The Costco Nutella & Go with Breadsticks combine sweet Nutella with crunchy breadsticks for dipping in one convenient package that’s easy to pop in your purse or lunch bag. Nutella may seem tasty and healthy because it contains Hazelnuts but is this really a healthy snack option? Or is it just tasty?
Nutella isn’t something we eat a lot of, it’s definitely a “treat” in our house and we’ll seldom have it on waffles, pancakes or in baking. I recognize how much kids love Nutella though so when I saw these Nutella & Go with Breadsticks packs I decided to pick them up to review.
Other sweet treats I’ve reviewed are the Creative Snacks Co. Strawberry & Yogurt Pretzels, Welch’s Fruit Snacks, Kirkland Signature Butter Toffee Cashews, Kirkland Signature Soft & Chewy Granola Bars, Snappers Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Pretzel Clusters, Heavenly Hunks Minis, Kirkland Signature Dark Chocolate Covered Mangoes and the Kirkland Signature Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Location in Store
You can find Nutella & Go in the snack section at Costco, near the front of the store. The item number is 1218715.
The first thing I notice about these snack packs is that the breadsticks fall apart easily when dipping them. The overall flavor of the breadsticks is also pretty bland, they don’t taste like much but that’s okay because the star of the show is the Nutella.
If you’ve never tried Nutella before it’s a very sweet, thick, creamy, chocolaty hazelnut spread. It basically tastes like hazelnut chocolate icing. The combination of breadsticks with Nutella is pretty addictive and delicious. The taste reminds me of of a chocolate covered biscuit with a hint of hazelnut.
The box of 16 packs costs $14.99 Canadian at Costco. In one pack there are about 14 breadsticks and more than enough Nutella for dipping. I think the price is a bit steep for what you actually get in a pack but I suspect you’re paying mainly for the packaging.
The box says not to refrigerate the packs and the best-before date is seven months from when I purchased them. I think kids would absolutely love these as a treat in their lunch box or after school.
They’re also convenient as a snack on road trips, flights or camping!
One package contains 260 calories, 13 grams of fat, 34 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, 23 grams of sugar, four grams of protein and 130 milligrams of sodium. 260 calories is quite a bit for a small pack of breadsticks with Nutella. I can see a lot of kids not wanting their dinner after having this after school.
I’d love to say these are healthy because they contain hazelnut, but they’re not. The first two ingredients are sugar and palm oil which are both really unhealthy. There’s also artificial flavor in the Nutella.
These Nutella & Go contain tree nuts, milk, soy and wheat.
Nutrition: 2/10 (I like the simple ingredients).
I absolutely love these cookies not only for back-to-school but for adult snacks as well!
