Ah, Nutellaaaaa

http://thekrazeekarlinator.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/nutella400_250.jpgI just wanted to take a moment to sing the praises of Nutella.  The stuff is simply from heaven: chocolate and hazelnuts mixed together into a spread....yummm...  The taste and smell bring back memories of my childhood when my mom would make peanut butter and Nutella sandwiches for school.  I unfortunately cannot keep this stuff in my house save for special occasions--otherwise I end up on the couch eating it straight out of the jar with a big spoon! 

Thought I might also add a little history of Nutella:

*Was created in the 1940's by Pietro Ferrero, a pastry maker.  Chocolate was in short supply back then due to World War II rationing, so he added hazelnuts to extend the chocolate.

Now, thanks to Alicia Padron's post about chocolate I'm sooo craving this! LOL

LOL!! You are so funny Paige..
I was about to comment on how much I adore Nutella too when I read the last of your post! Hee, thanks.. yes, I go nuts over chocolate.

Someone asked me recently of formspring if I could compare my work with any type of food I chose what would it be and of course Nutella came to mind. Or should I say it's always on my mind so it's the first thing that came out of it. :o)

I have to be careful though and not buy them frequently cause it ends up on my hips.. haha!
