Why foodies are racking their brains over this spread that tastes exactly like Nutella
- Aldi fans go crazy for $2.50 chocolate spread
- They say it’s the perfect cheap alternative to Nutella
Aldi fans go wild for their super cheap chocolate hazelnut spread, which they call a “perfect copy” of Nutella, but at less than half the price.
Australian bargain hunter and mother of two, Rachel Hallett, shared her love for Bramwells Chocolate Hazelnut Spread after finding it in the store.
Many other moms said the $2.50 treat was a fan favorite at home, with some admitting they might even like it better than branded products.
‘My kids love it and don’t know the difference with Nutella. Other cheaper brands refused,’ said one mother.

“This chocolate hazelnut spread is a really good cheat for Nutella,” Rachel told the popular Moms Facebook group about budgeting.
“The flavors are pretty much the same and they passed the spoon test with flying colors.”
A 400g jar of the spread is just $2.49 at Aldi compared to the much more expensive Nutella.
A 400g jar of Nutella is currently available at Woolworths for $6.30 and Coles for $5.70.
The Rachel family isn’t the only family who likes to shop on a budget.
“Both of my sons prefer the Aldi version of Nutella to the real Nutella. They love it,” said one mother.
The Rachels aren’t the only family who prefer low-budget purchases. Many families actually say they prefer the product over Nutella.
“I love Nutella and eat it out of the jar, so I always buy the Aldi brand. That’s why I buy imitations and my kids love it,” said another.
“Shhh this is the best kept secret!! Don’t screw it up now…” wrote another.
“My kids like Aldi better. They say it’s a little easier to spread and tastes the same,” another commented.
However, some people were offended by this recommendation because “nobody likes fake Nutella.”
“Very good hazelnut spread, but it’s not Nutella! I love Nutella and wouldn’t substitute this,” said one woman.
