For Nutella fans in Europe, there’s now a new way to consume the chocolatey hazelnut spread: slathered between two burger buns. As Business Insider reports, the “Sweety con Nutella” is the latest concoction on the menu at McDonald’s Italy.

The item looks like a burger at first glance, but fortunately beef has been left out of the recipe. The official McDonald’s Italy Facebook page describes the fast food treat as “soft bread with a creamy, indulgent center.”

Instead of serving the product alongside traditional burgers over hot food counters, it will be available at McCafés. The post doesn’t specify how much customers will be paying for the glorified Nutella sandwich, but based on the 75,000 "likes" it has received so far, plenty of people are eager to give it a try. This isn’t McDonald’s first bold attempt to mix sweet with savory: A few years ago, the fast food giant experimented with bubble-gum flavored broccoli aimed at kid consumers. (It didn't last long.) Time will tell if their latest endeavor has more success.
