Nuts may be a rich source of proteins, but consumers seem to view their healthful benefits as almost secondary to the flavors they impart. Take hazelnuts: The flavorful component has long been a favorite among consumers, with several notable introductions in foodservice coffee flavors, and it features prominently in one spread found in the grocery aisle. However, that product is seeing competition from a company better known for its peanut focus.
Jif has added hazelnut spreads to its line. Jif Chocolate Flavored Hazelnut Spread and Jif Mocha Cappuccino Flavored Hazelnut Spread are recommended as a spread, a recipe component or simply to be enjoyed by the spoonful. pf
