World Nutella Day 2010

**World Nutella Day Celebrates 5th Anniversary on February 5, 2011**

For those who don’t know, Nutella is more than just a “chocolaty hazelnut spread,” it is a way of life.

From childhood memories to oozing hot crepes, from breakfasts on vacation to free-spooning sessions on the couch, Nutella is prominent in the memories of many children and grown-up children in the world.

Three years ago we gave it its own holiday, and this year we’re continuing the tradition.

Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso (and Shelley from At Home in Rome, in spirit) solemnly declare Friday, February 5th “World Nutella Day 2010” – a day to celebrate, to get creative with, and most importantly, to EAT Nutella.

It’s Easy!

Make a recipe using Nutella. Eat Nutella with a spoon. A big one. Make art with Nutella. Wax poetic about Nutella. Cuddle with Nutella. Strike a pose with Nutella. Re-live your first experience eating Nutella. Offer Nutella as a sacrifice. Have a Nutella-eating contest or a Nutella party!

  1. Do something, anything with Nutella. Make a recipe, take a picture of yourself eating it with a BIG spoon, make art, wax poetic, re-live your first experience eating Nutella. Have a Nutella-eating contest or even a Nutella party!
  2. Take pictures and/or upload a video then blog about it ON February 5th, 2010. In your blog post, include links to Ms. Adventures in Italy, Bleeding Espresso, and World Nutella Day as well as the World Nutella Day 2010 badge/button (below – right mouse click, Save image…). Please try to post ON FEBRUARY 5 so that we can create a true chocolaty hazelnut wave across the blogosphere on World Nutella Day!

    Rarely eat Nutella, but will never forget World Nutella Day!

    I knew you wouldn’t…another candle on the cake soon, Gil! Woohoo 🙂

  2. Laurie

    Enjoy your nutella, girls! But do be mindful of the facebook nutella fanpage….whose members UNKNOWINGLY somehow ended up on Berlusconi’s sympathy fanpage after the attack. VERY strange, very scary.

    That’s weird…I can’t imagine that all three million or whatever people agreed on that 😉

    I know to most of you this must be a dumb question but “What is Nutella” It appears to be home chocolate from what I see in the site.

    It’s a chocolate-hazelnut spread made by Ferrero in Italy, but now sold around the world 🙂
