Costco Releases Its Own Cheaper Version of Nutella That Doesn’t Use Palm Oil
Attention Nutella lovers, Costco is now selling its own version of the favorite hazelnut spread under its Kirkland house brand.
A Reddit user pointed out the jumbo jars’ existence yesterday, by posting a decadent photo of two 2.2-pound jars of Kirkland Signature Hazelnut Spread on sale for just US$7.99.
The spread is also available on Costco’s website , though a two-pack sells for US$9.99 online.
That is still cheap compared to Nutella, which is listed on the Costco website at US$13.99 for two 33.5-ounce jars. On a unit-price basis, the Costco hazelnut spread is US$0.14 per ounce for online purchases, versus US$0.21 per ounce for Nutella.
The ingredients list for the two products are nearly identical, though the Kirkland Signature version uses sunflower oil instead of palm oil.
“Doh. I couldn’t stop the drooling,” a Reddit user said upon seeing the more affordable price of the Kirkland Hazelnut Spread.
