Fun Nutella facts


The Ferrero company, maker of Nutella, may not divulge its trade secrets, but it has a great website that includes — along with a Nutella locator and a "Tell a Friend" option — "Delicious Facts" about the spread.

Here are some of the recent entries on the site, courtesy of Nutella U.S.A.:

— Nutella's 40th anniversary celebration is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest breakfast, having hosted 27,854 people at the AufShalke Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, on May 29, 2005.

— The amount of Nutella produced worldwide in one day is equivalent to nearly three times the weight of the Statue of Liberty.

— More than 70 million hazelnuts are used worldwide each day in the production of Nutella.

— The number of jars sold annually, if lined up, would wrap around the moon four times.

— The amount of Nutella produced in a day could provide every person in San Diego with one jar.

Hey guys!

I Tweeted about Nutella last week on @Foodimentary and had more responses than any topic ever.

The Brits love it and went on and on about it.

The guys from the States would say things like "Had it once" or "I miss having that in my kitchen"

So funny.

I personally think there is nothing in the world like it, the nutty flavor and chocolate are a perfect match.
