It was world Nutella day earlier this week and the internet was awash with stories and recipes about this chocolate spread created by an Italian baker in the 1940s and now an international phenomenon.
Our favourite story was about how a member of the Royal family (we are guessing it was one of the younger ones and not the Queen) is rumoured to use Nutella as a face cream. There’s even a demonstration on one newspaper’s website – – who says hard news journalism is dead?
There’s also interesting facts like how Nutella outsells Marmite in the UK (is that a surprise?), that one jar of the spread is sold ever 2.5 seconds worldwide and that someone even invented a lock to stop people stealing his spread.
