I recently discovered Nutella and I'm hooked.

I looked at the jar today and it says that I shouldn't refrigerate Nutella. It also says I shouldn't microwave Nutella.

I'm not going to microwave Nutella but I'm wondering if you can just leave Nutella outside. Won't it go bad if I leave Nutella outside? Is it really like honey and you can leave it out forever?

This is what their website says. Quite helpful indeed:

How should Nutella be stored?
Unopened and opened jars of Nutella should be stored at room temperature.
Keep the jar tightly closed and store in a cool place to maintain maximum flavor.
Do not refrigerate Nutella or it will be difficult to spread. Excessive heat will
accelerate the loss of fresh flavor and may cause the oils found in Nutella
to separate.

Oh just got this too from their website. Do read, it answers how long you can keep it outside:

How do I know how fresh my jar of Nutella is?
The "Sell By" date that is stamped on every jar of Nutella is the date that assures
the best product quality and freshness. Nutella is good for one year.

One more thing you should take care about that always go to the manufacturer's website to find out such informations as they only know the constituents of their products and their basic infos.

I have sourced the above info. from the manufacturer's website which is as below:

You will get tonnes of more info about this product on above website.

Godd Luck.

no as nutella has the nessecarry preservatives in the jar it will not go bad if left out of the fridge, if you keep the jar in the cupboard, away from heat and light then the jar will last for ages, it's when the contents gets hot or is exposed to too much light the ingredients react and go bad, storing it in the fridge can be done but this makes it much harder to spread, hope this helps

I'm from Belgium,

the land of outstanding performances on the field of excellence and of course chocolates. :p

But seriously, it is common knowledge here never to refrigerate chocolate, because exposure to cold (as well as light) will deprive chocolate of all its aroma's and as a consequence its taste.

You don't have to refrigearta nutella. You do it only if you want to store it for long time, even after its best date. But it tastes better if it is left out.
