World Nutella Day

PhotoFunia-1ffd01e I’m still in Italy for a few more days, but I couldn’t let World Nutella Day go by without joining the celebration! Thanks to the wonders of technology and forward-dating on Blogger, I was able to prepare my contribution before I left the States.

I also wanted to let you know you have a little more time to leave a comment on my post about anolini in order to win a specialty pasta cutter AND help the people of Haiti too. Deadline to leave a comment is Tuesday night Feb. 9, 9 p.m. EST. Click here to find out more.

But on to the fourth annual World Nutella Day. Last year I posted a recipe for a pizzelle sandwich with nutella. This post doesn’t include a favorite recipe, but I’m doing something a little different - sharing a plethora of photos to show you how Nutella is loved by people around the world – from schoolchildren to celebrities and even world leaders.

Sara, from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso are hosting the virtual party showcasing Nutella. Click on either of their websites to see all the entries on Feb. 8.


Nutella is beloved around the world, including Taipei as you can see on this billboard:

Just look at this little Asian schoolgirl drawing her favorite treat on a blackboard:

Nutella 13

Jigsaw puzzle fans go to pieces over Nutella:

Clothes designers are “sew” inspired:Nutella 12

And artists draw on Nutella for inspiration:

It’s even framed on the walls of museums next to traditional classical art:

But pop into a modern art gallery and you’ll find Nutella there too:

Nutella 15

It’s beloved by many celebrities including Victoria Beckham:

Nutella 8

Paris Hilton also recently showed her affection for the confection:

And believe it or not, Vladimir Putin loves it so much, he put a photo of it on display in the Kremlin:

Nutella 6

This one’s hot off the press: It’s the new symbol on the $100 bill:

Nutella 7

Well why not? You don’t even have to be human to love Nutella. These felines are mesmerized by it too.

Enjoy World Nutella Day. I can’t wait to see what everybody else has cooked up!

LOL! Bravo! I can't imagine this world without Nutella! My favorite form of it is in sandwiches I eat on the beach with my nephew in the summer!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Lots of fun Linda! I did not discover Nutella until my children were young and a teacher introduced it to them in school became their favorite sandwich spread very quickly!
