World Nutella Day Round-up

February 7th, 2007 · Tags: Culture · Food · Italy · Nutella Day

UPDATE: We have an important late entry, but she RSVP’d a long time ago so I wanted to republish the round-up! When Cream Puffs in Venice cooks, I pay attention! :) Check below for her entry.

Late to the party? We’ll still take you!! - send your Nutella-inspired entry to nutelladay **at** nutelladay **dot** com – We’ll be posting the entire roundup and latecomers to soon.

We had a Nutella party at work yesterday – more pics will be posted on Flickr later, but for now, enjoy the virgin goodness of 5 kilos of Nutella freshly opened – look at the mouse in the picture for size reference!

Using the mouse as a size reference

On to the Nutella Day round-up!

This was a lot of fun – While I wasn’t able to make comments on everyone’s site, I really enjoyed “meeting” new people on their blogs and hearing about our mutual enjoyment of Nutella! I hope that you don’t stay strangers, ya hear? Make sure you visit these folks and comment – in fact, many of the comments on these posts have taken a life of their own as their readers share their own experiences with Nutella!

In no particular order……..
