    Why do you add butter to nutella?

    I really don't get people adding butter to a slice of bread and nutella...
    Same with adding butter when eating cheese, it's like cheese is already dairy and you're adding more dairy to it? I don't feel like it adds anything to it.

    If you love this combination, please explain to me what is so appealing about it. I've given it a go out of curiosity but I hated it, surely i'm not the only one who thinks it's weird?

    Yeah, I don't get this. I also don't understand why some people like jam and butter? Lol, to each their own, I guess!

    It tastes amazeballs.

    I wouldn't add butter+nutella to a slice of bread, but I would put both on a slice of toast. Damn I'm hungry now.

    That doesn't sound nice to me lol, but we all have different taste buds, some people love the combination others don't.

    Cheese + digestives is too dry. Cheese + butter + digestives and maybe a cheecy bit of tomato or Branston pickle is heaven on a biscuit.

    Never tried the Nutella thing though.

    Separately of course I would love both...but together, no way!

    I LOVE jam and butter. I use slightly salty butter since I find its offsets the sweetness of the jam...oh and I dunk in tea too.

    Because butter should be added to everything, everything. Why one earth would you put nutella on a dry piece of toast? Much better when it infuses with melty gorgeous butter. Mmmm.

    The toast isn't dry once you add nutella! Adding butter just turns you delicious chocolate into some sort of oozing monstrosity...
    Adding two spreads...wtf?

    Butter (especially when salted) adds a savoury flavour which nicely complements the sweetness of jam or Nutella and a nice texture, too. Also, I never understand how people can eat sandwiches without butter or mayo; I find them too dry with just the bread and filling.

    I really don't understand it! I can't stand people adding butter to bread at all....it makes me cringe. But surely butter is used mainly to make bread seem less dry and give it more flavour, which Nutella (and jam) do anyway?
