The name of this spread does not do it justice. It isn’t merely “cocoa”. Nocciolata Dairy Free is rich, creamy, chocolate goodness.
There is a Nocciolata Spread that DOES contain milk. But the one labeled with those two beautifully descriptive “Dairy Free” words right on the front is the one I reached for. And honestly, there is no missing out on flavor depth in the milkless version.
Nocciolata Dairy Free Hazelnut & Cocoa Spread is Like Nutella, but Better
I’ve not tried Nutella before, but can easily see the allure if it tastes anything like this. That said, I have a feeling that Nocciolata Dairy Free tastes far BETTER than Nutella. It’s very thick, but soft and spreads with ease. The sweet, indulgent taste and smooth consistency reminds me of softened semi-sweet fudge, but with warm underpinnings of real hazelnuts.
I’m not a fan of chocolate on bread, however, Nocciolata Dairy Free was perfect on apple slices. And I may have enjoyed a rich spoonful or two straight up! It would also make a great frosting or quick topping for a vanilla or chocolate dessert. And I have a feeling that your loved ones (dairy free or not!) would appreciate a jar or two as a special gift on Valentine’s Day, their birthday, or just because.
But take note that although Nocciolata Dairy Free is made with just a handful of simple, everyday ingredients, it is high in sugar. Like most other chocolate spreads, I would consider this a treat!

Mocha without the Mucca
My daughter is on her way to the store, so I was searching for a pic of this to text her. Thanks! By the way, in Italian, “nocciola” or “nocciolata” = hazlenut, but the suffix “-ata” does sound like chocolate, or “cioccolata,” so it’s a clever name.
Very rich and fulfilling consistency
This unbelievable dessert spread is perfectly soft and spreadable, yet has a very rich and fulfilling consistency that will never make you feel like your “living without”. The flavor has the depth of pure semi-sweet chocolate – something that I wasn’t expecting with the simple “cocoa” reference in the name.
It amazes me sometimes when you see pictures like this and it’s dairy free. I bet it tastes just as nice too! I’ll be making this one day that’s for sure. Thanks Alisa from Sarah.
:/ the price has doubled in the link provided
Sometimes Amazon isn’t the cheapest, but the suggested retail price is around $6.99 and you can find it for even less than that at many stores 🙂
