Nocciolata Spread Meets Partida Tequila?
guy gal who said he would stop reading the site if I kept covering unrelated food items, hear me out.
Nocciolata — an Italian (and slightly creamier) version of Nutella — wants you to pair its chocolate/hazelnut spread with Partida Reposado tequila. And they sent us a bit of both to give this oddball pairing a whirl.
I won’t belabor the point: Gooey chocolate pairs pretty well with just about anything. Consider whiskey, rum, vodka, or your favorite liqueur, and it will pair well with Nocciolata. As for the Partida, it’s a nice match too, adding some peppery notes to the silky, decadent sweetness of the chocolate spread. The vanilla in the tequila is a great companion with the chocolate, too — though I doubt any quality reposado or anejo would fail you here.
If you’ve ever had a hot chocolate spiked with tequila, you know what you’re in for. Give it a go!

Why do you assume it was a guy?
Am I wrong?
I like the variety, though do prefer stuff meant for pairing :)
Yes, you are wrong.
Trouble is, Diabetic Boy, this stuff has as much or more sugar than cake frosting. I mean, you know, Cake Frosting. aka Pure Sugar. Look at the first ingredient. Cane Sugar – Not Hazlenuts. In other words, Stay Away. It is Poison. Sorry. You’re Welcome.
ps Good News — see Justin’s Nut Butter (hazelnut) as an alternative. It’s not only good, but gooder for you.
