When you think of sweet, hazelnut chocolate spread, are you imagining eating it for breakfast or for dessert? If you’re in the latter camp, you agree with the current stance of federal regulators. The makers of Nutella are now trying to make the case, however, that the spread should be considered more of a breakfast item. [More]
Is an extra sample of Nutella worth going to jail for? A Burbank man who spent a year locked up for punching a 78-year-old man in the face over free samples of the chocolate hazelnut spread at Costco might be able to answer that question. [More]
Sure, glass jars are pretty. But one family in London is warning others against using empty jars as decoration after rays from the sun refracted off a Nutella container in a windowsill, starting a blaze that engulfed the home and killed their beloved pet.
Because a child is not a hazelnut chocolate spread, a judge in France has rejected a couple’s attempt to legally name their baby “Nutella,” saying it’s not only a trademarked name, but also would be “contrary to the child’s interest to be wearing a name like that” as it “can only lead to teasing or disparaging thoughts.” [La Voix Du Nord via Time.com]
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys a well-crafted pile of cheese, sauce and noodles and also happens to indulge in eating chocolate hazelnut spread straight from the jar, you might as well give up on any hope you had of living a normal life, unburdened by extra calories. That’s because some incredibly smart/possibly crafty villain person has invented a dessert lasagna called the Nutellasagna. Pass me the spoon. You know the one. [More]
If Coca-Cola was able to move more bottles of dark brown high fructose corn syrup water by slapping names on the labels, why can’t the same idea work for other products? That is probably not the idea behind a new Nutella campaign, which lets you pay more than six bucks for a jar of the choco-nut spread that literally has your name on it. Instead of figuratively having your name on it, as usual. [More]
While the Reese’s peanut butter cup has morphed from a cup (to an egg, for Easter, pumpkins on Halloween, etc.) it seems the chocolate peanut butter candy is ready for a new form — spreadable. It’s been a Nutella world so far, but Reese’s is set to enter it with a peanut butter cup spread. [More]
What do hail storms in Turkey have to do with the supply of Nutella at your local grocery store? A lot, actually. Hazelnut prices are away up due to a worldwide shortage. Ferrero, the company that makes Nutella, uses about 25% of the hazelnuts in the world. It and simplified its supply chain this year by acquiring a major hazelnut processor, Oltan in Turkey. [More]
It probably isn’t necessary for us consumers to test the structural integrity of our condoms, but this video published last week features a bold Italian experimenter doing just that. [More]
This is it. It’s time, finally! It feels like we’ve been preparing for this war all our lives. And by preparing we mean eating things that taste of chocolates and hazelnut and wondering what else could possibly exist with those flavors. Hershey’s has its answer, a line of chocolate spreads that seek to usurp the chocolate spread throne currently held by Nutella. [More]
You’re probably no slump at reading headlines so by now you’ve probably figured out that it takes more than one country to make a jar of Nutella. Because otherwise what would be the point, that’s not news, that’s normal and ho-hum. And yes, it takes a lot more than just say, Italy, where Nutella’s parent company Ferrero is located, to deliver hazelnut spread to the masses. [More]
What would you do with five kilograms (11 pounds) of the glorious choco-hazelnut spread Nutella? Jeff assumed that this isn’t even a reasonable question, because the giant jar at his local grocery store couldn’t possibly be real. Right? Nope. It’s real, it’s full of Nutella, and it costs sixty bucks. [More]
Remember when that pack of slavering corporate lawyers went after a helpless World Nutella Day, hounding it through the woods and nipping at its heels, trying to silence its delicious message forever? Hush now, that was aaaaall a bad dream, since Ferrero has called off its ravenous legal team and decided to let World Nutella Day live on.
Oh, Nutella — that hazelnut chocolate spread beloved by so many as a spreadable form of candy. Maybe you love Nutella so much you were planning on celebrating with World Nutella Day. Too bad, as the company apparently isn’t a fan of its fans, and apparently issued a cease-and-desist letter to the woman who founded the celebration seven years ago.
Remember last year, when various media outlets reported that the mother of a four-year-old child was suing the makers of Nutella for advertising it as a health food? Everyone thought that this was hilarious, because hey, lady, fat-laden choco-paste ain’t a health food. It’s time for us all to stop laughing now, because the class-action lawsuit has been settled for about $3 million, $2.5 million of which is going to consumers willing to admit that they can’t read a nutrition label.
A mother of a four-year old child has filed a class action lawsuit against delicious hazelnut spread Nutella. In her complaint, the mother says she was as “shocked to learn” from her friends “that Nutella was in fact not a ‘healthy,’ ‘nutritious’ food,” as advertised, “but was instead the next best thing to a candy bar.”
Kevin discovered something totally awesome about Nutella. Maybe they were being generous, maybe he sent them such a stack of seals that they couldn’t help but reward him. Or maybe this was all a massive Nutella Store mixup. Whatever the case, Kevin has a huge pile of Nutella merch and a renewed love of the company.
