If I had to eat a snack for the rest of my life, my choice would definitely be chocolate (I bet most of you chose that!). One of the most popular chocolate ingredients in the world is its combination with hazelnuts under the brand name Nutella.
This popularity is so great that Nutella fans celebrate the combination of chocolate and hazelnuts on February 5 each year. Nutella World Day is a day to share this popularity and interest with others. Let’s take a closer look at this day:
History of Nutella World Day
In fact, in 1960, the Fererro family introduced Nutella to the world. It can be said that the Fererro family got the idea of Nutella from the chocolate hazelnut cake that existed in 1800 in Turin, Italy, called Gianduja. This sweet was created during the reign of Napoleon due to the lack of cocoa fruit and the addition of hazelnuts to chocolate.
The Fererro family owned a bakery in Alba, Italy, known for its hazelnuts. The father of the family, Pietro, produced a creamy version of Gianduja sweets called Supercrema Gianduja. Later, Pietro’s son Michelle changed the recipe a bit and gave it a new name, Nutella. Gradually, Nutella became a popular food throughout Europe, the United States, and almost the entire world.
For the first time, in 2007, the idea of choosing a day to celebrate the arrival of Nutella was suggested by Sara Rosso, an American blogger based in Italy. The reason was Sarah’s love for Nutella. In this way, Nutella fans happily celebrated February 5 each year and shared it with others.
In 2015, Nutella’s maker made the day more sustainable and World Nutella Day. Because the company did something creative to support this day. Like launching a nutelladay.com website. All the holiday plans are announced on this website and it is even possible to register for the chance to become Nutella’s main ambassador.
