This Healthy Alternative to Nutella Is The Answer to All Your Prayers
Raise your hand if you're obsessed with Nutella but horrified by the amount of sugar per serving (...but still eat it anyway. Same.). Well, we've got great news for you. Bubble (a super-millennial brand known for its trendy snacks, powders, beverages, and cocktail ingredients) just debuted Hella, a vegan spread that's the perfect substitute for all the chocolate nut butter addicts of the world.

On top of being dairy-free, Hella is also paleo (if that's your thing) and is made with just three ingredients: roasted hazelnuts, cacao nibs, and coconut sugar. Much like the rest of Bubble Goods' products, Hella's ingredients are entirely organic and have been developed by chefs, nutritionists, and wellness experts-so you can rest assured you aren't giving up on quality while scoring that amazing taste.
Nutritionally, 2 tablespoons of Hella has 144 calories, 10g fat (1g saturated), 8g sugar, and 4g fiber. To compare, 2 tablespoons of Nutella clocks in at 200 calories, 12g fat (4g saturated), 22g sugar, and 2g fiber. Plus it has a few more ingredients: sugar, palm oil, hazelnuts, skim milk, cocoa, soy lecithin, and vanillin, an artificial flavor. (Related: Does Nutella Actually Cause Cancer?)
If you're going to treat yourself, no one's stopping you from going for the Nutella. But grab some Hella, and you can treat yourself to a dollop of chocolaty goodness knowing that-when you inevitably eat more spoonfuls than you mean to-you're at least overindulging in a slightly healthier treat.

If that doesn't sound enticing enough, Hella is also hella easy on your wallet and will only set you back $9. Unfortunately, it's currently sold out, but we have a feeling there's going to be a high demand for this yummy spread, so it's probably going to be back in stock in time for Valentine's Day. Hella-covered strawberries, anyone?
