Tomorrow night, Tuesday, February 5, you're invited to a very special celebration. On World Nutella Day, Nutella lovers unite for just one day 'to celebrate, to get creative with and to eat Nutella.'
Now sold in over 75 countries, Nutella is the brand name of a chocolate hazelnut spread. Manufactured by the Italian company Ferrero, it was introduced on the market in 1963. The recipe was developed from an earlier Ferrero spread released in 1944.
The main ingredients of Nutella are sugar, palm oil, hazelnut, cocoa solids, and skimmed milk. In the United States, Nutella contains soy products. Nutella is marketed as 'hazelnut cream' in many countries. Under Italian law, it cannot be labeled as a chocolate cream, as it does not meet minimum cocoa solids concentration criteria. About half of the calories in Nutella come from fat and about 40% of the calories come from sugar. But forget about the calories tomorrow and enjoy.
It's happening at 6:00 p.m., at Bongiorno's Italian Deli & Pizzeria.
