Costco is now selling an almost seven-pound bucket of Nutella for those who get through the already quite big jars far too quickly.
There are two things most people are trying to do at this time of year. One is to lose weight following an overindulgent festive period, and the other is to save money for the same reason. When it comes to saving money, we would personally recommend buying in bulk where you can. It's a little bit of a cliche but it is often true, the more you spend the more you save.
If you follow our advice and do buy in bulk to try and save money, you will, unfortunately, be on your own when it comes to losing weight. That's because the type of bulk buying we are about to recommend is going to require a lot of self-control on your part. It's a new product brought to you by the kings of bulk buying, Costco.
It comes in the form of a 6.6 lb bucket of Nutella, as reported by Today. That's right, almost seven pounds of the chocolate hazelnut spread that is loved the world over. Just to put it into a little bit of perspective for you, the bucket contains about as much Nutella as you'll find in 14 individual jars, so it should last you at least a week.
Nutella lovers will know that the sweet spread is not cheap. Your average jar costs about $2.60. However, the 6.6 lb bucket comes in on the cash register at just 22 bucks. That's a lot of pennies saved. Back to the weight loss issue though, and what this gargantuan bucket of Nutella won't save you is calories. The entire bucket contains more than 16,000 calories so you know, exhibit a little bit of portion control.
We love Nutella as much as the next person but we don't think we could eat this entire bucket all by ourselves. Well, we guess it depends on how long you give us. For those of you with families who end up scraping remnants of the spread out of a near-empty jar every morning at breakfast though, this money-saving bucket might be right up your alley.
