I first discovered the sweet goodness of Nutella in England when I studied abroad in college. One taste and I wondered, “Where have you been all of my life Nutella?!” I’ve been a fan of the chocolaty spread ever since. Smeared on sandwiches at lunch or waffles for breakfast, it’s a delicious treat that satisfies even my sweet tooth.
What is Nutella?
Nutella is made from the combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa (and lots of yum!). I love that it contains no artificial colors or preservatives. Plus it is also completely peanut-free, which makes it a great treat in my daughter’s lunchbox to take to her peanut-free school. Kosher certified, it is also gluten-free.
All of this talk of chocolate is making me hungry. I have to share with you my favorite way to enjoy Nutella – spread on a warm waffle served with fresh strawberries and bananas. It is divine!
(Oh, and I may or may not also enjoy licking it straight off my fingers too. Shhhh.)
If you haven’t had the privilege of indulging in the hazelnut delight, now is your chance. The Nutella Breakfast Tour is making stops around the country sharing samples. The tour will be stopping in Orlando from October 30 – November 3, 2012, you are invited to stop by. RSVP for the event on Facebook to receive more specific details about when and where. (Not in the Orlando area? Check out the full schedule to see when the tour is coming to a city near you.)
