While in the land of beer gardens and lederhosen, we are forgoing all cultural temptations to report to you daily from ISPO. All temptations except one. With a high energy per weight ratio of 5.33 calories per gram, Nutella has always been a backpacking favorite of ours. Here in Munich, with the low cost of US$6.66 for a 1400 gram container, it is the main source of fuel to power us through the days of walking and talking, and the nights of writing and fact checking. We hereby nominate Nutella as our favorite European ultralight product. What comes in second place? You decide.
