February 5th is World Nutella Day! This is the day that we can officially eat Nutella without gaining any weight….all calories are free that day 🙂 This is what I will tell myself on Saturday when I dip my spoon into the creamy heaven that is Nutella and taste it’s incredible goodness! I will not think of the other foods that I will have to forgo in order to make my calories balance for the day. Is it possible to live on Nutella alone? Hmmm…..maybe for one day it wouldn’t do too much harm!
Nutella is one of those treats that I never get tired of. When I was a little girl, it was hard to find here in the States. Only the Italian specialty stores carried it, and thus it was a rare treat when I actually had it. But now…it can be found everywhere (even Costco – and BTW, they have the BEST price on it!). But nowhere outside of Italy have I found the array of Nutella confections that are readily available in the Auto Grills all over Italy. They sell Nutella with cookies, Nutella with drinks, and best of all – the MEGA 5 kg Nutella containers! I wanted to bring one of these 5 kg treasures home with me…but sadly, it would have caused me to exceed my baggage’s weight limit 😦 What a shame!
So, bring on the spoons and the Nutella and ENJOY World Nutella Day!!!
