‘Hazlenut cream’ spread sells out online in hours and is seen as a serious competitor to Nutella.

After almost 55 years of market dominance Nutella looks like it has a rival for its chocolate hazelnut spread.

Luxury Swiss chocolatier Lindt has released a 'hazelnut cream', which is now available on its website and in Lindt stores.

Lindt's spread, which retails at £5.99 ($7.92) is made from 40% hazelnut, compared to 13% in Nutella. The spread has been available in other European countries for some time and has now arrived in the UK, delighting fans on Instagram.

The preparation method that has been fine-tuned by the Lindt MaÎtres Chocolatiers to give rise a perfectly smooth mixture which retains the full chocolate aroma​," said a Lindt in a statement
