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 0110Even a tough guy like fitness buff Dario can’t resist the wiles of the chocolate hazelnut spread.  All his muscle is no match against Nutella.

Nutella 019Nutella 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.

Nutella 017When 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.

Nutella 012Nutella always tops the grocery list of food enthusiast Daniela.  The spread is a staple in her pantry and makes an appearance on almost everything.

Nutella 01Nutella definitely gets this art director’s creative juices flowing.  For David, a spoonful of the chocolate hazelnut spread is an artistic masterpiece.

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

    Wow, that’s one monster jar of Nutella! It looks almost as big as the “little Superman”. I haven’t had it in years but this posting might have just inspired me to create some sort of Nutella flavored burger creation. Thanks for sharing this fun post! 🙂
