Sometimes, in our lives, we meet people who leave a lasting impression on us. These people are nice, understanding and everything that you would hope a person to be. And no matter how bad things get, these people will always be there with us to make things better. And in case you don’t meet any such people in your lives, don’t worry, Nutella does just the same. Nutella, the glorious, drool-worthy creation by man is basically happiness that is stored in an air-tight jar.
Nutella is the brand name of a chocolate-hazelnut spread but the spread has become so famous in the world today that it is better known as Nutella itself. Introduced in 1964, it is manufactured by the Italian company Ferrero. Oietro Ferrero initially made a 300 kg block of a hazelnut cream in 1951, and with time, made it more creamy and called it supercrema. He started sending it across Europe as ‘Nutella’ and it became an instant success with people in all the countries alike. Nutella is famous with people of all ages because it tastes like goodness of creamy chocolate with a hint of hazelnut. It is one of the thing which can be eaten all by itself or by pairing it or by putting in other dishes. I am very sure I am not the only one who has licked a jar of Nutella clean because there was nothing else for dessert. World Nutella Day is celebrated on 5th of February.
