    A simple ode for a simple love, chocolate, hazelnuts, bread and thou… Another nice event, Michele. Grazie!
    Oh yes I did a Nutella post in spite of what the link love says. Funnily enough there was a last minute discovery for me that yesterday was a celebration for our local nutella like product, called Crema Gianduja, which is another wonderful chocolate hazelnut cream. We have lots of local chocolatiers here making this perrenial favorite. But today is Nutella’s day! Hooray…

    Hey whatever chocolaty hazelnut spread floats your boat, Marla…we’ll celebrate it 😉

    When I was younger, we ate a lot of this nutella with simple fluffy white bread. Not for breakfast, but for snack after school. Now, I still have nutella year round. Most American will have peanut butter in their refrigerator, I don’t have peanut butter, but I have nutella in the kitchen.

    I am so glad to found out about the event this morning when I visited David’s blog. Then I had to go exercise until noon. Came home home and quickly made my dessert. Glad that I finally able to join.

    Elra, you joined in all right…your recipes are fabulous!

    No way! I just stumbled across your blog today and had no idea it was world nutella day. Nutella is my most favorite thing to eat, and it is extra super yummy as dip for sour green granny smith apples with a little cheese on the side. Yum. In fact, I think I’ll go make some now. 🙂 Nice to meet a fellow nutella addict.

    Pleased to meet you Alicia. I love the tangy and sweet combo too 🙂

  38. 02.06.2009

    Oh no! I’m a terrible mother. When my son asked for his usual PB&N (peanut butter and nutella <3) I had to tell him that we were out of it! On WORLD NUTELLA DAY. If only I had known, I would’ve gone out of my way and run out to get more! Crud. I’ll just have to make it up to him tomorrow! Happy Love Thursday!

  39. 02.06.2009

    I had no idea it was World Nutella Day! But my kids eat Nutella EVERY SINGLE DAY unless we’re out (which I try not to be) since they want to have it EVERY SINGLE DAY!

    Happy Love Thursday!

    Not only am I a day late, but I have a confession to make. Promise not to judge me, okay? I’ve never tried Nutella. Ever. And I’m forty-mumble years old. I will have to check out the Nutella Virgin info. What other joyous pleasures have I overlooked?

    Well I hope you can remedy that soon, Julie…you won’t regret it 🙂

  45. Meredith

    I made my virgin nutella tour with msadventure’s espresso-nutella cupcakes. Delicious!

    Excellent, Meredith…and congratulations 🙂

    I had Nutella on some taro pancakes at U Top It on the Big Island of Hawaii on Feb. 5, 2009, while we were on our vacation this winter. Nutella, raspberries, and whipped cream. Yum! I otherwise, eat it either straight out of the jar, or on a piping hot english muffin that has been lightly spread first with a wee bit of margarine!
