Hazelnut spread? There’s news! A few days ago, Barilla broke the news that it is going to launch a hazelnut spreadable cream with the brand “Pan di Stelle” on it, which will challenge Nutella‘s nearly absolute leadership. A contest of flavour, which will delight everybody’s palate, worldwide.
Rumour has it, initially the new Pan di Stelle spread will be sold in a unique format, that is 330g, and the price will be higher than its rival; as for quality, it is said that it will contain lesser amounts of sugar, sunflower oil (Nutella uses palm oil) and it will be made with only 100% Italian hazelnuts.
Finally, it seems the cocoa will be obtained sustainably. Some say that the cream will also contain Pan di Stelle cookies crumbs: in practice, this is going to be interesting!
We are certain that our clients, that is wholesalers and retailers in all parts of the world, are as curious as we are to try out this new Pan di Stelle spread, and that is why we will send them free samples as soon as the product is available.
Let’s get back to Nutella and start right from there, as it is, currently, the number one in the world, and let us see the five best hazelnut spreads on the market according to Bell Italia. Of course, 100 Italian.
Since 1946, the year of its foundation, Ferrero has always stood out for its commitment to excellence and for the dedication of all the stuff. The results are there for all to see: Ferrero is a world leader in the sector of sweet snacks and, of course, in that of hazelnuts spreads.
Nutella stands out for the authentic hazelnut and cocoa flavour made even more irresistible by its unparalleled creaminess. It is so good that even a small taste is a delight: 15g Nutella, that is about a spoonful, spread on a slice of bread is an experience like no other.

That of Rigoni di Asiago is the history of a small family enterprise that became, in time, a big company. A company that combines tradition and innovation, respect for nature and authentic flavours. The history started in the ’20s when granma Elisa turned her beekeeping amateur activity in an actual job.
Rigoni di Asiago’s Nocciolata is good, because it is made exclusively with selected organic ingredients with high-quality certifications; it is smooth, because it is processed slowly and carefully, according to the most ancient tradition; it is natural because it is not submitted to chemical processes, doesn’t contain any additives, colourings or flavourings. In short: an actual delicacy to be tried at least once.
