    Yummy! I’d love these with apple and a touch of caramel! Then, perhaps some cinnamon toast!

    The ideas could go on and on. I can’t wait to try them.

    Good luck everyone on this great giveaway :-)

  2. Connie K

    First I’d dip my finger in for a quick taste test; then I would eat some from a spoon. Then I’d spread some on an English muffin for breakfast. Then I’d ponder what else I could eat it on, and in case I couldn’t think of anything, I’d eat some more with the spoon :)

  3. Makeup Morsels

    oh my goodness these look amazing! I would eat it with a spoon. Maybe spread it on toast if I’m feeling virtuous :P Or on crepes! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  4. Jess K

    There is no doubt I would go the classic grilled banana sandwich with a layer of the chocolate on one side and a layer of the mocha cappuccino on the other side with extra chocolate chips thrown in there!

  5. amanda kay tea

    oh my goodnes…where to start….there are so many things i’d want to make…but i’d have to say that fruit pizza with the chocolate spread with some bananas and apple slices would be sooooo yummy right now!!! ooh…or even mix it in some vanilla ice cream for a sweet treat :)

  6. A clary

    OMG!!! This has made my day. My everyday afternoon snack is Jif peanut butter spread on a graham crackers. I don’t know if I can wait for the giveaway I’m looking for these now! Thanks for informing!!!!

  7. Vicki

    I know me- I will have to just wipe my finger across the lid when I open it to get that teaser taste. Then I will dig in with a spoon. I just can’t wait to try it!!! Thanks Jiff and Kevin and Amanda for sharing this!

  8. Mélodie

    The first thing I will do with this wonderful new Jif is hide it in a place where no one else can find it, and eat it all with a spoon! Maybe keep some leftover to make a yummy desert!

  9. Heather Spooner

    I would first try them with a spoon, straight out of the jar. Nothing fancy. Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Christie Ryan

    Oh my goodness! The Mocha flavored Jif sounds delicious! This could be dangerous haha! I would probably dip fruit into it.

  11. sona

    When I saw this I thought of my children. My kids love waffles, so i would love to use the
    spread to make home make waffles for my kids. :)

  12. Jenn

    Oooooohhhhh, this looks so. good. I’m thinking my first taste will be via my finger straight out of the jar! Then on a couple of graham crackers. I LOVE the Jif!

  13. Jennie Gift

    Hazelenut spread is a spoon straight in the jar thing!!! I might add a little Jif peanut butter to help enhance the favor but I doubt it is needed :)

  14. Candace

    OMG! My son would love this. Let’s see he would probably first try it in a shake, then coffee, on a waffle, apples, oh my the possibilities are endless!

  15. Jo Lynn

    this would be amazing as a decadent hot chocolate addition! That’s how I plan to try it out first, but those marshmallows are calling my name too!! :)

  16. Jess

    I am actually trembling with excitement! How will I try Jiff Hazelnut spread first? Most likely standing in my pantry with a tablespoon…and if all the tablespoons are dirty, I’ll probably just use my middle and index fingers as a scoop! Y.U.M.!!!!!

  17. Lea

    I’ve actually tried this already because it was on sale at Target. It tastes yummy & spreads a bit easier than Nutella! So far, I’ve used it on my frozen blueberry waffles for breakfast and for pretzel dipping.

  18. Charlene

    My first thought is on pancakes, but I might have to cheat and eat a spoonful straight from the jar. Don’t think I can wait:)!

  19. Sharie T

    My fav breakfast already is toaster waffle, with Jif pb and syrup on it. Trying this will just kick it up a notch! Thanks for sharing.

  20. Sharifah

    Oh my!! *mouth watering*

    What’s the first thing I’d do with these? You mean after I lick it off a spoon? :-P

    I think I’d bake this in croissants, use it as a fruit dip (mmm…mangos and pineapple), and then perhaps try to make a baklava of sorts with it.

    Oh the possibilities are endless. Best of luck to all! :-)

  21. Melissa M

    Oh, Yummy!!! I will try it as dip for pretzel rods, on bananas, and in a peanut butter sandwich.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. Melanie

    I would use Jif Hazelnut spreads where I would normally use peanut butter. My morning bagels would be the first place I would use it. I would also use it in place of the peanut butter that I dip my oreo cookies as a snack at night. The possibilities are endless.

  23. Ana

    WOW! Super excited about this. I think my finger may go into the mocha cappuccino jar before my brain will let me grab a spoon. This will also mean my husband may not eat any since I’ll be too busy trying to get my hand out of the bottom of the jar before he knows its here. Scary thought, he works from home… I might not get any! lol

  24. jane

    so yummy!!! i would put it on everything!! :) most of all, i would love to start my mornings with this on some toast or bagels yumyumyummm :)

  25. Sherrie

    Nothing bettet than Jif in a peanut butter cookie! I wonder if I could make cookies and use this spread instead of peanut butter?

  26. Kayla Clark

    First, my son will be overly excited to have Hazelnut spread for his before school, after school and before bedtime snacks that he makes himself. He is only 10 but loves the hazelnut spread. Then I will enjoy using this as hazelnut is one of my favorites also.

  27. Emily L

    GAHHH! So many possibilities! <3 I think my first would be to make a delish icecream shake with it to cool down these hot July days! :)

  28. Christine

    I love reading your blog everyday. I haven’t seen the new Chocolate Hazelnut before. I would love to try it on whole grain english muffin for breakfast since I am a chocolate lover. Yummo!

  29. lori p

    I haave had the mocha cappuccino….after finishing the first jar-slathered on croissants! I ran to get my second jar! Still love it on croissants, but a spoon works good too! ;)

  30. Billie

    I’m thinking I will enjoy the new hazelnut spread-straight, no chaser- from the jar! This is a fantastic prize package!

  31. Kim Hogan

    My kids LOVE Nutella and have lots of uses for it. Me I will try the Jif in my “Baklava” makeover. I’d be happy to share the recipe if you’d like. It’s easy, and will have your family or guest raving.

  32. LIsa

    I have been looking all over for these spreads…have to try Target! I would love to win. Thanks for the opportunity!


  33. Stacey Reed

    My 8 year old daughter actually spotted this product at Target a couple of weeks ago and I promised her we would buy some soon-couldn’t that day-we weren’t going home for a while and temps have been 100 degrees…we probably could have AND would have drank it! ;) We’d love this giveaway package to completely spoil and indulge ourselves!

  34. Amy H.

    They totally have to make a chocolate peanut butter combo. But these look good too! I want to try it on celery sticks. I grew up with peanut butter celery in my school lunches and I still have a really big soft spot for them. It’s time to come up with grown up versions of the school lunch snack.

  35. Judy Christensen

    What wouldn’t I try it on!!!! I would love to put it on a shortbread cookie, a warm brownie, pour a little over some vanilla ice cream — the ideas are endless!!!

  36. m barker

    I will try it as a spoonful right out of the jar! After that I have a waffle recipe and strawberries in the fridge just waiting for it!!!!! YUM

  37. Melissa P. @Mel4Him

    Oh Yum! I so want to try all of these with bananas. I love PB with bananas.

  38. Kelli Hobbs

    Well in true chocolate hazlenut fashion I would stick a spoon in there and eat it straight out of the jar! And probably wouldn’t stop. :)

  39. SWJenn

    I’ve already tried it! Got the little tubs to take to work, and treated myself to some on oatmeal cookies! They were awesome! Would be great on ginger snaps too! And a few more exclamation points so you know how much I love it!!!!!!

  40. sandyb

    I think I would put it on lightly salted rice cakes. Yep that is the way I would use it. Wow, this is an awesome food giveaway.

    Thank you

    sandyb720 at gmail dot com

  41. Deb Wisker

    First, I’d stick my finger in it and scoop out a bunch. Then I’d spread it on a graham cracker. Then I’d hide it from the rest of the family! ;)

  42. Jammie H.

    My son and his girlfriend bought some and put it on some homemade crepes. I personally would like to try it like one of the photos — on a sugar cookie “pizza” crust, topped with strawberries. Looks delicious!

  43. Linda Smith

    Just a spoonful of the chocolate hazelnut spread sounds heavenly. I would also like to try it on a toasted english muffin.

  44. Sunee Stevens

    OMG! I just saw these at Target this morning! I would most likely open the jar and dig right in with a pretzel! YUM!

  45. ivy

    We are big fans of nutella; have been for years! We would probably do a sample taste test comparing the two with nutela…or, we’d try it with a croissant, or baguette, or directly out of the jar.

  46. Alisa

    How would I try? Definitely for breakfast on toast or on a tortilla (guilty pleasure) and I love it on some vanilla frozen yogurt with berries!

  47. Jane

    On brownies, of course! I love brownies – can’t even imagine how delicious they would be with hazelnut spread on top!! Yum.

  48. Kristen M.

    Mmm, I love hazelnut spread with bananas. Spread on tortilla, add sliced bananas, and eat as a roll-up sandwich. If I had a panini maker, I’d totally make a “grilled” sandwich with the same ingredients.

  49. Astrid

    I don’t know how I could resist simply licking a spoonful… but I would try to be good and put it on some whole wheat toast. ;)

  50. Julia Bettencourt

    As some others have said—just taste it straight from the jar first. Fruit dipped it it would be yummy. Will have to think about what recipes to try it with.

  51. Erin

    If it’s anything like Nutella, I’ll also be eating it straight off the spoon out of the jar. And then I’d make some butter cream frosting with this in it!

  52. Stephanie

    OMG! I would have the say the first I would try this is straight out of the jar, baby! Lol. Thanks for the opportunity to win. :)

  53. Michelle Torres

    Wow!!!! I would had never thought I would see the day that Jiff would come out with these lovelies!!! There is so many things I would love to try it with, from just toast to dipping some vanilla waffers….

    Michelle Torres

  54. Dana D

    I’m like several other posters…on a spoon, straight from the jar! Then I might dip pretzels in it, just to be sure it mixes well with grains. LOL

  55. April was in CT now CA

    Oh my word! We just got a new fire pit and I’d invite our neighbors over one evening to make s’mores using the Jif spreads. Of course we’d have to make one s’more with each spread to taste test!! lol Can’t wait to try these and what a great give away!!

  56. Casey Dozhier

    Oh this would be great to host a tea party for my little girls and their friends ! And I can see that I will be enjoying it as well on crepes …..
    Thank you :)

  57. Kelly

    I’ve never had any type of hazelnut spread before, so for the first time trying it, I’d just like to keep it simple and eat a spoonful of it right out of the jar.

  58. Ellie A.

    For Breakfast of course I’d love this to make a little party for my kids & their friend have a wonderful OH my mouth is watering already! Thanks for the chance.

  59. Jennifer

    I’m already on my third jar of the chocolate, but I haven’t seen the mocha yet! I might try that in a shake! Yum!

  60. Danielle

    My husband read this post and is in Heaven! He loves hazelnut anything. I think the first think I would have to do with the new Jif Hazelnut Spread is make him a sandwich. Most likely with bananas.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  61. Meg

    I would love to make a dip out of it for cookies/fruit, but let’s be honest…I’ll probably just use a spoon straight from the jar.

  62. Gena@BakeAllTheThings!

    I want to eat it out of the jar with a spoon!
    And drizzle it over Cherries Garcia ice cream!
    And bake it into snickerdoodle cookies!

  63. Melinda Johnson

    Is it wrong to say with a spoon? I think on a banana would be really awesome first and then it would be time to get creative!

  64. Tish

    I would love to use this in my pancake batter (yum)!!! Or as a frosting on my cheesecake, or in a crepe with strawberries, or on my toast with my coffee…the possibilities are endless!!!!

  65. Stacey @ Couponing with Boys!

    I am thinking that some Chocolate Hazelnut S’mores would be awesome! My kids have been really into s’mores this summer for some reason, and this would be so much better for them.

  66. Andra

    I would be trying this on your dessert hobo pies that we make when camping!!!! Thanks for the chance. Now if I can just find this wonderful product around here in MI!!

  67. Leslie Kiley

    I would love to try the new Hazelnut spead just on a piece of toast first to get the real flavor first then I am sure I would try making cookies with it next because my family LOVES cookies!

  68. Suzanne Shepherd

    Wow, that stuff looks delish! I would make up my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe but substitute the Jif spread….and maybe add some chopped hazelnuts or macadamia nuts. Yes, that is what I would do. Must go to Target today….I’ll be on the lookout for this new product! Yum. Wonder if it will be as good as Nutella?

  69. Amy Tong

    What a nice giveaway prize pack. I would first try JIF simply with a spoon….and spread on 2 pieces of bread and make some stuffed French Toast. YUM!.

    amy [at] utry [dot] it

  70. Jennifer Cavola

    OMG where to even begin!! I would start by email Jiff and thanking them for these new products quickly followed by a spoon a marshmellow and dipping into everything!! I totally lack self controll when it comes to awesomness in a jar.

  71. Sue in AZ

    After tasting a bite (or two or four) with the silver spoon, I think I will do something with the brownie mix and marshmallows.

  72. Dee

    Oh em gee! This is so cool. If I were to win, I would totally use them as a sandwich spread. With fluff. ;)

    Not gonna lie, I might even take a spoon to ’em. Ha.

  73. Maria

    I think I’d try topping some brownies with the Mocha Cappuccino flavor to start. That’s if I didn’t eat too much with the spoon first.

    Thank you!

  74. Redd H from Salted Spoon

    The first try would have to be some plain on a slice of whole wheat toast! I want the flavor to be the star!

  75. Jennifer

    Wow, this looks amazing! I saw it in my local grocery store last week and was tempted to get some. I would want to try it on fruit pizza like the photo above.

  76. Diane

    I’d probably try it first on whole wheat toast, because that would be a quick way to get a taste! Then on homemade waffles~ definitely!

  77. Kori

    I would love to try some on toasted waffles but if I couldn’t stand to wait that long I would just smear some on a banana!

  78. Bob Shields

    I am going to make some homemade peanutbutter cookies, then make some homemade marshmallow cream , then I will make a peanut butter cookie, marshmallow cream and the new hazel nut spread sandwich, then EAT EAT EAT YUM YUM COOKIE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  79. Dalis

    My Target doesn’t have it yet, but I tasted it at Walmart (unfortunately they don’t have it in stock either)… oh my goodness it is delicious!!! I WANT SOME!!!! please, pretty please with a cherry on top! (or should I say with a hazelnut on top!)

    — dalis

  80. Mary Stiffler

    I would most definitely grab the silver spoon and try a spoonful of it on it’s own first!! I have always liked nutella and am so excited to try this!!

  81. MaryAnn

    I would make crepes and lather the spread on it and roll into cylinders and top with fresh strawberries served with coffee. A remembrance of Paris. I would love to win to have a chance to try.
