If you're a fan of eating Nutella straight out of the jar, we have some great news: There are plenty of other sugary spreads for you to sink your spoon into. Here are a few of them.

1. TWIX; $10

This chocolate dip comes with bits of crunchy biscuit inside, just like a Twix bar—and though it unfortunately doesn't have any caramel, we bet it's still delicious.

2. CADBURY CRUNCHIE; $10

According to the reviews, this crunchy chocolate-and-honeycomb-spread doesn't do the original candy bar justice, but is still delicious in its own right.

3. MALTESERS; $13 

If you're craving a different kind of British sweet, you can also try Maltesers Teasers. Originally chocolate balls with honeycomb-like malt centers, the new version can be found in a jar and can be used as a spread or in recipes.

4. MARS BOUNTY; $12

This decadent spread comes with little flakes of coconut just like the chocolate bar it's based on, sans chocolate.

5. REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER; $10

This spread has a creamier consistency than the crumbly peanut butter found in Reese's peanut butter cups—the better to spread it on toast, apple slices, and other snacks.

6. HERSHEY'S; $14

Melting down chocolate can be a time consuming process. Skip it by buying this two-pack of creamy Hershey's chocolate, which you can easily slather on pancakes or use as a dip for strawberries and pretzels.

7. CADBURY CARAMEL EGG; $10

Caramel eggs can be messy to eat—but not if you're scooping the good stuff with a spoon or eating it on an apple slice. According to one reviewer, this delicious spread "is what HEAVEN tastes like."

History
A Very Brief History of Chamber Pots

Some of the oldest chamber pots found by archeologists have been discovered in ancient Greece, but portable toilets have come a long way since then. Whether referred to as "the Jordan" (possibly a reference to the river), "Oliver's Skull" (maybe a nod to Oliver Cromwell's perambulating cranium), or "the Looking Glass" (because doctors would examine urine for diagnosis), they were an essential fact of life in houses and on the road for centuries. In this video from the Wellcome Collection, Visitor Experience Assistant Rob Bidder discusses two 19th century chamber pots in the museum while offering a brief survey of the use of chamber pots in Britain (including why they were particularly useful in wartime).
