Why are Americans afraid of hazelnuts?

Mr. Taster | May 24, 2004 04:05 AM

As anyone who has traveled to Europe knows, hazelnuts turn up in every kind of dessert. Chocolate bars, ice cream, breakfast spread (Nutella). They really are quite fantastic, and when I tell my European friends that hazelnuts just don't show up in everyday life here in the US, they just don't understand.

I guess I don't either-- does anyone know why hazelnuts (or hazelnut flavor) is MIA in the USA?
