The first time I ever had Nutella was when I was visiting my aunt in Toronto. She was putting it on her toast during breakfast. I was quite confused about the thick chocolate spread instead of the regular butter or jelly. Although I liked it, I never really got into it here in the States, just when it was available at the odd continental breakfast, plane ride or hotel room.
When I was pregnant with my son a couple of years ago, it seemed to be one of the few things I wanted to eat. At one point, I went through three jars in a month. I especially loved it on bread or fruit. I even created a little snack of my own what was a variation on something I had before: Granny Smith apple slices, cream cheese and peanut butter on white bread. My version was the apple slices, cream cheese, and Nutella on Hawaiian sweet bread. It’s better than you could even imagine.
If you love the chocolate and hazelnut goodness that is Nutella like I do, tomorrow is the day for you! I discovered recently that February 5th is Nutella Day. Celebrate with recipes, sharing it on the web if you have a blog or social networking account, or just spread it on something good and enjoy.
