Nutella Mini Cups - Instant Portion Control

Let me start off by sharing that I love Nutella. Unfortunately, I love Nutella WAY too much.

In the past I have innocently purchased a jar thinking, ah, this will last forever. I'll just enjoy occasionally.

Before I know it, the occasionally becomes multiple times a day.

At Target, I usually pass the "Nutella aisle" and with a sadness because I can't trust myself with even a small jar.

On a recent Target run, my joy turned to hope. I saw Nutella mini cups. I stopped in my tracks. Could this be too good to be true? I grabbed one of the boxes and pulled out my iPhone to do the Weight Watchers Points Plus math. Much to my joy and surprise, one cup is only 2 Points Plus (80 calories) and the Nutella was pre-measured.

Yes, some would argue that I'm wasting money. However, I would tell them that now I'm not eating 1/4 of a jar of Nutella before coming to my senses and puting the spoon down.

And that, my friends, is worth EVERY penny.

Thank you team Nutella!!!!
