But, let’s put all those other foods aside and talk about one of our favorite sweets—Nutella. It so happens that about a week ago, Nutella was all over the French news, and not because it is just amazing (Although, that might have been part of it). Rather, Nutella was on the news because it was at the source of several supermarket riots. Yes! You read that right. Throughout France, Intermarché supermarkets offered a huge 70% discount on Nutella. The price went from €4.50 to €1.40. If you’re a little slow with your Euro-to-dollar calculator that is $5.62 to $1.75.
According to BBC, Nutella is eaten in nearly 160 countries and the amount eaten last year is comparable to the weight of the Empire State Building. So, yeah that’s a lot.
From humble beginnings to mass riots in France we really wanted to bring to light a special day for our family and for those who love chocolate and hazelnuts. February 5, 2018 is recognized as “World Nutella Day.”
Much like World Nutella Day, it’s your time to turn to social media and launch a new campaign to show the world your awesome Nutella creations using Toastilla! Post pictures on Instagram, tell your friends on Facebook and share your recipes on Pinterest. We want to see you reach out and share what it is you love about Toastilla and Nutella.
