12 ways to eat more Nutella

February 5 is World Nutella Day. Here are some more creative ways to eat it.

Back in 2007, American blogger Sara Rosso was desperately looking for a way to celebrate her love of Nutella.

She decided to dedicate a day to her favourite chocolate and hazelnut spread, and the first World Nutella Day was born.

So cult-like is people’s fondness for Nutella, Sara’s idea for a World Nutella Day – to be observed on February 5 each year – quickly caught on.

In 2015, she even transferred the day back to Nutella’s makers so they could continue to spread the love.

The best way to commemorate the day is to eat plenty of Nutella of course.

But if spreading it on toast isn’t going to cut it, why not get creative and try one of these ways to eat more of the chocolate and hazelnut spread.
