What do you get when you combine the talents and tummies of a photographer (Vanessa Galle Photography) and food blogger (Fables and Focaccia) who share an immense fondness for Italian chocolate hazelnut spread? A fun and flavorful photo collection of like-minded Nutella aficionados demonstrating their passion for the gianduia cream, by showing off their best “Nutella Face”.
The Italian food phenomenon has been putting joyous grins on the faces of many since its creation in 1944 making it one of the world’s most beloved accompaniments to bread. What began as a humble means to ration chocolate during the Second World War has turned into a confectionary empire landing the Ferrero family on the Forbes billionaire list. Seventy years later, the creation of Pietro Ferrero has become a global sensation, enjoyed in over 75 countries across the planet, by men and women of all ages. So beloved is the chocolate spread that a holiday in its honor has been declared, World Nutella Day, celebrated on February 5th.
To commemorate this special date we invited a dynamic range of Nutella lovers, varying in age and background, to immortalize on film their most genuine expression of adoration for the cocoa cream. Paired up with baguettes, breadsticks, giant spoons and of course plenty of our favorite spread (5kg worth in fact) these amazing folks put forward an awesome “Nutella Face”.
Nutella may as well be kryptonite for this adorable little superman who loses all willpower when it comes to his favorite spread. Two year old Marcus will fly faster than a speeding bullet towards a jar.
When it comes to the chocolate hazelnut spread, it’s double the love and double the fun for twin sisters Isabella and Sofia, not to mention a whole lot of sweet kisses for their Nutella-loving mother.
Rather than being behind the camera, photographer Shiri, steps out in front of it to give us a clear picture of how much she adores the chocolate spread. http://www.focusstudios.ca/
Nutella definitely gets this art director’s creative juices flowing. For David, a spoonful of the chocolate hazelnut spread is an artistic masterpiece. https://www.facebook.com/DfDiB
There is no better way to beat writer’s block then by putting down the pen and picking up the Nutella. My passion for this Italian confection could be the makings of the next great love story, or at least a great blog. Happy World Nutella Day from Fables and Focaccia ~ Jenny
