The Italian brand Rigoni di Asiago recently debuted a rich and creamy chocolate-hazelnut spread that provides a delicious, dairy-free alternative to Nutella. Perfect for pairing with everything from oatmeal to fresh fruit, this new vegan-friendly spread helps customers enjoy the delicious taste of chocolate anytime.

Nocciolata is an organic spread made from hazelnuts, cocoa butter, cocoa, natural vanilla extract and raw cane sugar. Despite its indulgent taste and creamy texture, Nocciolata is completely vegan and contains no GMOs or artificial colors, additives, preservatives or sweeteners. The spread also used cold-pressed sunflower oil as an eco-friendly alternative to palm oil. As a result, the rich and chocolatey spread is good for both consumers and for the plant.

Nocciolata is likely to appeal to both consumers adhering to a dairy-free diet, as well as those simply looking for a healthier way to enjoy the taste of chocolate.
