World Nutella Day

To get you all a little, ahem, in the mood for World Nutella Day, I’ve come up with the:

Top 10 Reasons Nutella Is Better Than a Boyfriend

10. He’s always interested in spooning.

9. He doesn’t care if you’re wearing make-up…heck he doesn’t even care if you’re clean.

8. When you decide you’re finished, you just put a lid on him and put him in the cupboard.

7. He doesn’t care how many Nutella jars you have open at the same time.

6. He’ll watch all your favorite shows, listen to your feelings, *and* provide chocolate.

5. He always lets you take the lead.

4. You don’t have to feel guilty about leaving Nutella at home to fend for himself.

3. He’s always, always, always sweet.

2. He’ll never ask you whether your last Nutella jar was bigger.

And the #1 reason Nutella is better than a boyfriend:

1. He satisfies your craving. Each. And. Every. Time.

I’m going to leave the “Top 10 Reasons Nutella Is Better Than a Girlfriend” to the other half of the Nutella-loving population, so if anyone out there is so inclined, feel free to post it and let me know! Also, everyone feel free to add your reasons why Nutella is better than a boyfriend/girlfriend here in the comments.

It’s almost here! February 5th is coming so fast!

    This is an excellent line of reasoning, Renรฉ!

    and provide ultimate chocalaty flavored love

    Love this post! (and looking forward to your next Nutella post)

    Two more reasons Nutella is better than a boyfriend:

    1. He never complains about how many pairs of shoes you own and whether or not you wear them.

    2. He comforts you when you’re hormonal and never ever complains about it.

    Hahaha, excellent Kathy!!!

    Sub ready made Bird’s custard and I’m with you for the whole damn list.

    Add Ambrosia rice pudding in a tin and I can write a wad of new additons.

    Oh Sarah, as Churchill once said (paraphrasing perhaps): Two countries separated by a common language…I trust both of those dishes are tasty, but I’ve never heard of them! ๐Ÿ™‚ Feel free to wax poetic about them, offer recipes, etc. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    nutella will NEVER EVER leave the toilet seat UP.


    No, that it will definitely NOT do. Hahahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

  21. connie

    a suicide of deliciousness….mwah nutella! everybody goes crazy yummy about world nutella day..what a chocolaty day to celebrate! %&*)=# rapsadoodle…namit gid…

    Love it Connie!

  22. fred

    nutella is a liar though.
    hazelnuts is 3rd ingredient after sugar and oil.
    it is essentially frosting. sold as peanut butter but its not, its just frosting.

    But where does Nutella lie about any of that, Fred? The ingredients are listed on the side of the jar, and it’s sold as a chocolate (sugar implied, no?) hazelnut spread–in that order. I don’t think anyone is shocked to learn that something with a chocolate base has a lot of sugar…or at least they shouldn’t be.

  23. Nell

    I love number one!
    Nutella is better than a husband because its rich and decadent and doesn’t say “your not going to eat that are you”………….heres a hint “yeah I am”

    Hahaha love it!
