So delicious, you eat it straight from the jar. So moresome, you just can't stop. That ooey, gooey goodness from your childhood, better than chocolate, more fun than other spreads, the can't get enough sweetness that is Nutella.
Did you know that Nutella was thought up as a solution to the shortage of cocoa supplies following World War Two in 1946? The use of hazelnuts allowed the rare cocoa to go further than in regular chocolate. It was originally shaped into a loaf (oh, the dreams you'll have tonight!) that could be sliced and served on bread. 1978 was the first year that Australia was blessed with this chocolate treasure. World Nutella Day takes place on February 5th every year as a way to celebrate everyone's favourite treat and share the love with those shameful folks who've never tried Nutella chocolate before. The amount of Nutella produced in one year weighs the same as the Empire State Building.
Nutella's ingredients are sugar, palm oil, hazelnuts, skim milk powder, fat reduced cocoa poder, soy lecithin, and vanillin flavouring. The spread is 13% hazelnuts and 7.4% cocoa. The recommended serving of Nutella is one tablespoon, but here at eBay, we don't judge. We know you're buying that bulk tub of Nutella for a kid's party.
The palm oil used in Nutella chocolate is certified sustainable and segregated so there's no environmental concerns there. The sugar used in Nutella is around 75% beet sugar and 25% refined cane sugar, so, thankfully, no disgusting high fructose corn syrup is included. The vegetable oils used in Nutella are not hydrogentated. The hazelnuts originate from Turkey and Italy, and the company intends to have full traceability of all hazelnuts used in Nutella by 2020. Nutella is suitable for vegetarians as the whey powder included is not derived from animal origins. Nutella is free from all artificial colours and preservatives.
