Today we must thank the blogger world for banding together and creating World Nutella Day. Two bloggers Ms Adventures in Italy and Bleeding Espresso started World Nutella Day in 2007 to celebrate their favorite Mom approved chocolate hazelnut spread.
We at TNTs have excitedly jumped on this bandwagon, because who doesn’t love Nutella? No one. Even those who can’t eat it look longingly at that package, spoon in hand, single tear dripping down their faces. They love the idea of Nutella.
Nutella has broken down the stereotype that condiments belong on something. Downing a spoonful of ketchup makes you look like a weirdo. Eating a scoop of peanut-butter makes people think you’re a crazy person. But diving spoon first into a jar full of Nutella is encouraged by all.
Even as a kid if your parents caught you with a Nutella covered face, they would grab a spoonful and join in on the fun. (Cue Full House family moment music.)
So today as we celebrate World Nutella Day, we would also like to thank Pietro Ferrero of Italy for being nutty enough to take condiments where no man had ever taken condiments before.
For your Saturday enjoyment, our favourite Nutella recipe from the kitchen of Amy:
Baby Nutella Croissants:
1 jar of Nutella
1 package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
Unroll the crescent rolls
Place a spoonful of Nutella in the middle of each
Roll and bake according to the crescent roll package directions
Eat the rest of the Nutella with a spoon
