I was a little skeptical trying this product because I'm often disappointed by the flavor or texture (especially when it's comparing itself to another product- in this case, nutella). As soon as I smelled this and tried it, I was in heaven! It is definitely a different texture than nutella but the flavor is spot-on. This is a fun replacement for my almond butter. I'm excited to think about the ways in which I can use this. Definitely something I'll be buying for my nutella-loving friends.

So this is YUMMY. My sister can't eat sugar, gluten, dairy or soy and I found this while looking for something sweet for her. Let me tell you, this stuff is really really good. It tastes just like Nutella but without the added sugar and dairy. Dip pretzels in this stuff if you want your mind blown.
Like the name says, it's gooey (actually almost slimy). I don't notice a weird texture at all when eating it, but sometimes it slides off a knife which is strange.
Super tasty and I personally love the sticky consistency - hard to put down!
I was so pleasantly surprised with this spread! Tastes better than the mainstream alternative. I’ve eaten it by the spoonful, on toast, on fruit and I’m trying to figure a way to get it in my coffee. Definitely hiding this one from the family.
The consistency is thicker than the name would imply but I actually like it that way!
My new favorite spread... but truthfully it rarely gets past the spoon. I've officially broken up with all other hazelnut spreads because Gooey is the real deal.
Can it come in a bigger jar? Asking for a friend ;)
I am not a person worried about their health (yet), so for me, taste is almost always a bigger influencing factor than how nutritious a product is for you. Now if a product claims it is just as tasty yet healthier than a popular product, then I say sign me up. However, despite having great hopes for Gooey, it simply did not give me the same or better experience as eating Nutella. Perhaps it could be that Nutella was just so important to me in middle school and beyond that nothing could replace it, but I wouldn't say Gooey comes close to the same experience. First, it was quite tricky to spread onto my toast. That's pretty much the only thing I would use this spread for, so that was a bit disappointing. And when it came to the taste, it was not sweet enough to my liking. While I love the design and what the product is trying to do, it simply was not for me.
Work on the consistency to make it easier to spread on toast.
As a nut butter fiend, many of the specialty brands usually jam pack bad ingredients and sugar into each spoonful. With Gooey, I ate half a jar within 24 hours (no shame). SO delicious on literally everything and I didn't feel like I was going to come out of with a cavity or five.
Would love a bigger jar!
I love that there is a hazelnut spread without palm oil available at my local grocery store! The texture is weird, yet kind of fun to scoop out. I really liked mixing it with peanut butter to get a semi-gooey texture. The flavor alone is great.
I would love for this product to be in a glass jar! I like the product, but not enough to keep buying single use plastics.
I absolutely love Gooey. It has become a staple in my household! Whenever I am craving a sweet treat whether it be for breakfast or for a late night snack my new go-to favorite is Gooey! My most popular use for Gooey is on fresh fruit or on vanilla ice cream. The best part is that it’s totally guilt free!
I’d love to buy it in 2-packs!
Ridiculously delicious. As a diehard health nerd, this is one of the few sweet things I can have on a daily basis and still feel great. Zero impact on my blood sugar and energy levels (as opposed to a certain hazelnut spread). Will be stocking up asap!
