Nutella & Strawberries

The perfect snack: Nutella and strawberries. It works for breakfast, snack, or dessert! There are many uses for Nutella, but my favorite is to dip strawberries in it. I’ve made Nutella cookies before and they came out ok but did not meet my high expectations. If you’re on a diet and your sweet tooth is about to be the death of you, don’t be scared to smear a little of this wonderful hazelnut spread on some strawberries. Though the spread contains saturated fat and sugar, it also supplies a good amount of key vitamins and minerals that you need for good health. The hazelnuts in Nutella also boost the health of your heart, making it a fairly nutritious food to not feel too guilty about. Don’t get too carried away and inhale spoonfulls, but a few tablespoons is surprisingly good for you. Isn’t there some saying like chocolate mends the heart? If you know that saying, comment below.

Starbucks – The Hazelnut Frap Sucks

On Sunday I had to work on an English project and have a hard time focusing at home so I went to Starbucks. I’m not a big coffee drinker but I wanted to try a new frappuccino. The “Hazelnut” was the first listed and had “new” next to it so I just went for it. The whip cream and caramel drizzle makes the drink look very appetizing. I was excited until I took the first sip which tasted like buttered popcorn jellybeans. Thank god I got some coffee cake to absorb the awful flavor. I went on this homework excursion with my friend Ryan and he ordered a cinnamon roll which was a good call but still didn’t beat the coffee cake. Next time you go to Starbucks, I do not recommend ordering the Hazelnut Frappuccino unless you like the booger flavored Harry Potter jellybean; however do order the coffee cake!
