It’s available online and in Costco stores
If you’ve ever tried Nutella, you know there can never be enough of it to shove in your mouth. If you haven’t tried Nutella, you need to immediately question all your life choices. So, what could be better than a jar of that silky smooth hazelnut spread to warm you up on cold, winter nights? A bucket of it, that’s what.
Big box retailer Costco decided to up their Nutella game recently, busting out a comedy-size 6.6-pound tub of delicious goodness — and we are here for all of it.
Listen, there’s not many things any of us would eat out of a bucket. Mayonnaise. Planter’s Cheez-Balls. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, obviously. But as the most Nutella-devoted in all the land, I never, ever thought it would become available in bucket form.
No more trying to shove your tongue into the jar to get the remnants, you can shove your entire face in it, no problem. (If you’re into that sort of thing.)
Costco already sells two-count 33.5 ounce jars as well as the on-the-go 1.8 ounce 16-pack that my kids eat in one sitting, but they’ve really gone and outdone themselves with this latest option. This tub holds 105.6 ounces of the hazelnut spread and it retails for only $21.99 (plus $3 shipping if you don’t want your neighbors to see you walking out of the store with that sort of commitment).
Also, just as a public service announcement, you’re staring down 81 servings if you eat the entire bucket in one sitting (or 16,200 calories), not that anyone’s counting. On the bright side, you’ll be the most popular mom of your kid’s friend group, so there’s that.
Obviously, there’s a plethora of recipes you can make with the creamy, dream-like spread. There’s Nutella pancakes, Nutella toast, bananas dipped in Nutella, and even Nutella bruschetta. Listen, between you and me, you could spread Nutella on pile of cat feces and probably still manage to win Top Chef.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about the glory that is Costco, if you’re still on the fence after the Bucket-O-Nutella option. It’s one of the only places you can buy an engagement ring, a kayak, a casket, and a $440 cheese cake (not cheesecake but an actual cake made out of cheese) that serves 100-150 of your closest friends (depending on their penchant for the artisanal variety).
But it’s this Nutella vessel that really puts them a step above the competition. So, throw out your New Year’s resolutions and tuck in with a good movie, a large spoon, and let all your dreams come true.
