World Nutella Day -- Tuesday, February 5th

I just found out that Tuesday, February 5th is World Nutella Day.

While I wouldn't normally make a big deal about something like this... I just thought it would be cool if we all took some time on World Nutella Day to have a heaping helping of Nutella and Cheese (or whatever you would prefer).

I miss Nancy...


How will you participate?

I never had it with cheese, so I'll try that first. Then move on from there and spread it on all varieties of fruit in the house, then on various toasted breads, crackers, I also do have some Fluff ...I'm keeping an eye on this thread for more ways to eat it.

Wow, this is really weird, but it totally falls on the same day as Pancake Tuesday this year! Awesome! I was already planning on making my traditional "Pancake Cake"--thin eggy pancakes spread with Nutella and layered. Yum yum yum. My last sweet before Lent.

I bought the industrial sized nutella twin pack at Costco. As for the cheese..I'll pass.
However...
James did this thing for a while where if I made grits for breakfast, he'd put nutella in them. I was not amused and told him if he didn't stop, then no more grits.

In honor of this thread, last night I made a sandwich from two slices of pound cake, spread with Nutella and Polaner strawberry spread. I recommend it. Tonight I'll make one with apricot spread.

Anybody that mentions calories or carbs or other such scare tactics in this thread should be banned for a while.

It's pretty good.

Never heard of this one yet, but I've been considering possible new combos so I did a batch of microwave popcorn, then put a couple tablespoons of Nutella on it, stirred, stirred, stirred, until the Nutella was somewhat evenly covering the popcorn. hmmmmmmmm goood.

Gee thanks, now I've got a Nutella craving...

Usually, I go for the basic Nutella-filled crepes, but since I don't feel like making crepes, I might go for Nutella on this stuff:

It's basically a sort of soft white bread that's mildly sweet. While it IS a white bread, I find that it does have a bit more texture and is a little more chewy than regular Wonder-style bread. It really isn't overly sweet or anything, but just enough to be noticable. It also makes REALLY good french toast,although you've got to cut it pretty thick, as it gets kind of fragile when it's thin.

From what I've noticed, it's not all that tough to find. Grocery stores typically stock it near the deli section and not the bread section for some strange reason, and I've seen it by the deli sections in those big Wal-Marts that have grocery stores in them. Whenever I do get the stuff, I usually get a loaf like the one I linked, which is one big unsliced chunk. They also sell little square dinner rolls that taste exactly the same, as well as wheat rolls that I haven't gotten around to trying yet.

As far as how it works with Nutella, I've found that the sweetness of the nutella really works well with the sweetness of the bread (although the combination kicks the already-borderline Nutella well into "dessert" territory), and as long as you don't get a loaf that's too close to its expiration date, the softness of the bread and the sort of chewy-gumminess of the Nutella makes a really good texture.

How is it possible that so many Americans don't know what this is??

I'll dig it out tonight for dessert, spread on some basic bread rolls... hell, it's good with ANYTHING, really, and lasts forever in the jar.

And what a great idea, with Hawaiian sweet bread... oh god, sometimes I really miss the variety of foods available in America. Then again, Iceland nearly makes up for all that it lacks, with the dizzying array of dairy products on offer.

I did it! Had Nutella last night ...

Don't look


I melted a teaspoon in the microwave and drizzled it over a slice of NY cheesecake.

YUMMMMMMMM!! Even licked the spoon.

Gonna go a little less sweet this evening. Yes, it's like Ferrero Rocher without the chunks.

Nutella always reminds me of eating one of my childhood favorites--Dutch hagelslag, which are chocolate sprinkles (they come in all sorts of flavors now) you put on buttered toast or rolls or what have you at breakfast. They melt when put onto hot buttered toast. Yum yum. Discovering Nutella for me was like finding hagelslag in a jar, ready to go.

And yes, I too buy my Nutella in the twinpack at Costco when it's in stock.

Gotta get my fill today; tomorrow Lent starts, and that means forty days without sugar for me.
