It is an everyday ritual for me to check theCHIVE.com to see what type of funny photos are posted. Well, today I came across a rather intriguing photo/post about something called Nutella. Apparently, John over at theCHIVE receives several emails each day about this stuff from readers claiming it is the best sh*t on earth. Just like John, I wanted to know why the girl in the photo had a jar of Nutella turned up to her lips guzzling like it was beer. After a quick Google search I found my answer.
According to Nutella’s official website:
Nutella (pronounced “new-tell-uh”) is a tasty hazelnut spread that contains quality ingredients such as skim milk and a hint of cocoa. Nutella® spread on whole wheat bread, or any multigrain product, with orange juice or skim milk is a good combination for a balanced breakfast that the entire family will enjoy. Nutella contains no artificial colors or preservatives.
What does Nutella® taste like?
Nutella® has a unique taste. The blend of simple and wholesome ingredients – hazelnuts, sugar, skim milk and a hint of cocoa – combined with its creamy texture spread on whatever bread you choose, will delight your taste buds with each bite.
Is Nutella® really a hazelnut spread?
Hazelnuts are a main ingredient in Nutella®. Each 13 oz. jar contains more than 50 hazelnuts. See ingredient list for other ingredients.
Why is Nutella® hazelnut spread advertising itself as a breakfast food?
European families and visitors have enjoyed Nutella® hazelnut spread as a breakfast staple on bread and toast for more than 40 years. The Ferrero Company wanted to introduce this traditional Italian breakfast item to the U.S. market to share the enjoyment of such a unique, convenient and tasty product. For more information on Nutella® at breakfast time, please visit “Tips for Moms” section of the site.
Where is Nutella® made?
Nutella® that is sold in the U.S. market is made by our manufacturing plant in Canada. Other Ferrero plants that produce Nutella® are located worldwide.
Admittedly, at first glance I assumed this product was European. The packaging looks like something that you would find on the shelves of food markets in Great Brittan. I was surpised to learn that it is sold here in the good old U.S.A. and even more surprised when I found out the company pushing this product is the same company (Italian confectioner Ferrero) behind the hard mints Tic Tacs.
