May 30 - Jif is adding hazelnut spreads to its family of products. Popular hazelnut flavor pairings of chocolate and coffee inspired these two new flavor varieties: Jif Chocolate Flavored Hazelnut Spread and Jif Mocha Cappuccino Flavored Hazelnut Spread, now available.

"As a brand with more than 50 years of peanut butter history, the new hazelnut spreads are a natural line extension for the #1 choice of choosy moms and dads," said Maribeth Badertscher, vice president, Corporate Communications, The J.M. Smucker Company. "Jif Hazelnut Spreads offer a delicious new way to make more memorable meals and moments."

Jif notes its Hazelnut Spreads can be enjoyed in a variety of delicious ways: on a slice of whole-wheat toast, with a favorite fruit, by the spoonful or in a variety of recipes from breakfast to dessert.

Jif goes on to recommend a few new ways to give favorite snacks, desserts and beverages a hazelnut twist:

  • Breakfast: Spread on top of toast, waffles or pancakes.
  • Hot and Cold Beverages: Add to coffee, hot chocolate or a milk shake for a unique twist on a favorite beverage.
  • Snack: Use in s'mores instead of chocolate bars for a tasty treat or simply enjoy with pretzels or graham crackers.
  • Dessert: Use as an icing on brownies or drizzle over ice cream.
