Sweet Dips Showdown: Nutella vs. HOPE Chocolate Cashew & Almond Dip
It’s impossible to have a meaningful conversation about dessert dips and spreads without considering Nutella, a popular chocolate and hazelnut sweet dip that has gained popularity worldwide. However, it has also gained notoriety worldwide, because Nutella is NOT healthy. The Nutella label says it all: sugar accounts for over 50% of Nutella by weight, and the next most prevalent ingredient is palm oil! As you can guess, your friendly nutritionist isn’t recommending Nutella for your daily dessert option.
So while we wanted our small-batch sweet dip to be even more rich and chocolatey than Nutella, we obviously wanted it to be healthier. You can judge for yourself on the flavor—but when it comes to nutrition, the following comparison chart proves that we definitely hit our mark!
