    Speaking of chocolate hazelnut spreads, I devoured half a container of dark chocolate peanut butter today. It has a pretty respectable ingredient list, too:

    Not quite the range of your beloved-but-now-defunct P.B. Loco, but it was very good!

    And I am trying to introduce my brother to various foods, expand his diet consisting of eggs and steak. We ate a meal containing hazelnuts. His only comment? “This tastes like Nutella.” He only knows hazelnuts from Nutella! There is much to be done.

    Ronaldo has a point – that’s rather lovely. But, really, nothing quite beats Il Duomo in my mind either when we are talking Firenze. It’s magnifico!

    wow I didn’t realise there were hazelnut chocolate spreads even better than nutella – I feel so remiss in not researching this more

    and I agree that architecture is all important when it comes to dinner – though I could cope with seeing the palazza on my way to work each day

    I love Nutella so if I ever tried Crema Novi, I think it would Blow. My. Mind.

    And no, I can’t believe you didn’t buy the cannabis chocolate. You obviously weren’t thinking of your dear readers. Hmpt!

    Wow, glad you’re still living your trip and going through pictures!

    I like the idea that the actual Gates of Paradise are somewhere in Italy. 😉

    haha you’re hard woman (breaking up over architecture :P). I want to know where can I get this Crema Novi? It sounds positively delightful!

    I want ALL of the chocolates and spreads you photographed. Oh and the wedgie cake too!

    Oh my, luxury Nutella spreads, that are maybe even vegan?! Be still my heart!

    Lauren: I’m slightly amused that you posted that link to me, when you’ve told me previously that it was my professed love for eating entire jars of PB&Co that led you to try it in the first place 😀 More crazily, though, I too just finished a/my only jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams the other night. Nothin’ better than with a spoon! (I think we should give your brother some quinoa and tempeh next. Blow his mind.)

    Whisperinggums: Would you really have wanted a son-in-law who fashioned himself a hat out of coke cans?

    Johanna: The Palazzo definitely isn’t shabby, I’ll grant you that! And you aren’t really remiss – we can’t get much beyond Nutella here in Aus!

    Agnes: I know. I’m a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad person.

    Simply Life: Me too!

    Camille: Trust you! I actually reworded that to be more specific (“the doors called the Gates to Paradise” yadda yadda), then I decided that I quite liked how it read as if Italy has the Gates to Paradise, so I changed it back. 😀

    Lorraine: I don’t know if we can get in here in Australia! And really, I’d have enough heartache before I got to Italy – Ronaldo never stood a chance!

    Kath: Wedgie cake is the best cake, in my humble opinion. 😛

    BitterSweet: Sadly, I discovered after eating it that it has skimmed milk powder in it 🙁 Surely some of the fancy ones would be vegan, though!

    I love that you’re still doing travel posts! Stretch ’em out as long as you can!

    I happen to agree that the town hall is cooler than the Basilica, and so had I been in your shoes I might’ve found myself wined and dined by a smooth-talking Italian man. Hey, there are worse things.

    Oh, yes. Nutella…YES.

    Cannabis chocolate? Ew, I’d pass too. Besides, Amsterdam would be the REAL place to get that, right?

    Amber: I’ve got a couple still to go, but soon I’m going to have to start exploring Canberra with “new” eyes, I think! Somehow, I don’t think Ronaldo would’ve been your type, but stranger things have happened 😀
    I have to say, I was in Amsterdam for two nights and I didn’t once get offered pot. I did see it at the markets, though, so that’s something…
