Nutella is the brand name of a hazelnut-based sweet spread registered by the Italian company Ferrero at the end of 1963. The recipe was developed from an earlier Ferrero's spread released in 1949. Nutella is now marketed in over 75 countries across the globe.


Nutella is a modified form of gianduja. The exact recipe is a secret closely guarded by Ferrero. According to the product label, the main ingredients of Nutella are sugar and modified vegetable oils, followed by hazelnut, cocoa and skimmed milk, which together comprise at most 28% of the ingredients. The recipe for Nutella varies in different countries: for example, the Italian formulation uses less sugar than the product sold in France. Nutella is marketed as "hazelnut cream" in many countries. Under Italian law, it cannot be labeled as a chocolate cream, as it does not meet minimum cocoa concentration criteria.


About half of the calories in Nutella come from fat (11 g in a 37 g serving, or 99 kcal out of 200 kcal) and about 40% of the calories come from sugar (20 g, 80 kcal).

    Mmm. And tasty drawing too. Some years back, you could use the jar as a tumbler afterwards.

    But the description puts you off a little...

    I'd forgotten about the jar/tumbler conversion. I used to buy a jar whenever I went skiing in France (pre-UK availability) - I think Mum's still got the results in with the other glasses! I'll have to check next time I'm visiting. ps Not rich so it meant we only had three of the tumblers.
