As long as we're on the subject....I can't stand them, either.  Mostly, it's the gawdawful smell.  That smell gives me the kind of sudden, nearly-debilitating nausea that I've otherwise only experienced during early pregnancy.

I don't get nauseated.  It's just not appetizing.  Maybe I should carry other food in there and eat it while DH is eating his 12 inch long whatever.  I'd probably eat less of it.

We were not allowed nutella as kids. I remember going to a friend's house, where the kids were allowed to eat nutella whenever they felt like it. I thought those parents were the nicest parents ever, lol.

The first time my kids ever ate Nutella was at a hotel breakfast in Belgium.  After that, they wanted to move to Belgium permanently.  They still think we should retire there.

I only liked yogurt "okay" until I discovered the 100 calorie vanilla greek yogurt that Yoplait makes.  Nonfat, but no aspartame, has some sugar in it.  I am also sure it has crack in it, because I have to have at least one carton a day.  I cannot stop eating that stuff.

That sounds perfect.  I'm going to have to look for that the next time I go to the store.

I've been eating pineapple Chobani for breakfast recently.  Talk about crack.

<> We like Daisy, and the grocery store brand and Breakstone are pretty good. There's one though BHL?? that has gelatin and a bunch of other stuff. It is like the nastiest stuff ever. Blech.

I am really not a fan of Nutella. I ate way too much hazelnut flavored chocolate when I lived in Germany. It just doesn't appeal to me at all. Peanut butter though? I eat that with a spoon. In fact, that's the last thing I ate today. :)

I'm not the only one!  I feel the same way about Subway.  And it's totally the smell.  I've never met anyone else who has noticed it!  I will eat there if I have to, but I really prefer to eat somewhere else, if possible.
