February 6 is World Nutella Day!
Ok, I try to avoid being a corporate shill, but were I famous and offered an endorsement deal for Nutella, I think I’d have to take it. Whoever invented Nutella should be commended for making a perfect product – chocolate and hazelnut in a creamy spread. And you can eat it for breakfast!
I’m pretty sure I had Nutella as a kid, but my Nutella adiction did not begin until I was an adult. I confess I’ve spent many a night slathering Nutella on crackers and when I run out crackers on fruit and when I run out of fruit, I’ve licked the knife. On a visit to Salzburg I was overjoyed to get packets of Nutella with our continental breakfast. A good creperie like Mr. Crepe in Davis Square will put Nutella on a crepe. In Greenwich Village I once had two great flavors in one sandwich — a peanut butter and Nutella sandwich at Peanut Butter & Co. The Boloco wrap and smoothie joint chain offers the delicious Nutella smoothie. I love Nutella in all it’s forms.
Susan does not like Nutella. It doesn’t make sense since she loves chocolate. I think she confuses it with curd or Vegemite or something else gross she ate in Belgium, but I can’t convince her otherwise. Oh well, more Nutella for me.
