Our household has been on a bit of a Nutella kick. The kids like to ask for a peanut butter and Nutella sandwich at meal time.
Sure, Nutella can call itself a “hazelnut spread”, and tout its quality ingredients like as skim milk.
But let’s be honest here, gang:
Nutella is rich chocolate and hazelnut frosting that is socially acceptable to be eaten as part of a meal.
Personally, I think it gained that social acceptance for the way it can help transform everyday breakfast foods into one-off versions of yummy treats.
Nutella on bread? A poor man’s cake.
Nutella on toast? A non-fried, chocolate iced donut.
Nutella on bacon? An experience not of this world.
Nutella on a spoon? A utensil that will be licked clean.
Not that I would know anything about that last one…
