Learn the history and stories behind Nutella, get ideas for how to eat it, and access to some of our favorite Nutella recipes including: Flourless Nutella Chocolate Cake, Devil’s Food Cupcakes Filled with Nutella, Nutella Nut Clusters, Hazelnut Macarons with Nutella and Spicy Nut Centers and more in the Unofficial Guide to Nutella! Now available on Amazon!

I’ve seen quite a few people come to this blog by searching for “nutella virgin” for some reason, and then I thought as part of my duty as your World Nutella Day co-host, a Nutella primer is necessary for those of you who haven’t eaten it before, and just in time for  World Nutella Day tomorrow! Make sure you visit the other World Nutella co-host Michelle today with her Top 10 Signs You’re Addicted to Nutella. And come back tomorrow for World Nutella Day!

Nutella is best served at room temperature, and a bit warmer if it’s a cold winter because you want it to spread easily. With the glass containers, you can take the top off and nuke it in the microwave for a few seconds if you really want to speed up the spreading process.

After a lengthy and empirical study out in the field, I’ve identified the main archetypes of what is A Nutella Lover. And they usually fall into one of these categories:

  • The Spooner. This person uses a spoon, which not only is the most ergonomic utensil available, it’s also the most efficient in terms of excavating volume from the Nutella jar. This Nutella lover usually believes in a direct-to-mouth approach for the excavation.
  • The Naturalist (aka using one’s Finger). Not only does this person not want anything between him and his Nutella, he truly believes eating it off the end of his finger brings him closer to Nutella-godliness. (Editor’s note: clean hand recommended.)
  • The Lover Lover. Different from the Naturalist, this Nutella lover spreads Nutella onto body parts that are not his/her own.
  • The Dipper / Dunker. This person avoids using pre-approved utensils to reach their Nutella for as long as possible, instead using pretzel sticks, breadsticks, and even fruit to dip, dip, dip away the Nutella through the jar opening until it becomes impossible to continue and they must change tactics.
  • The Spreader. The weapon of choice is usually a knife, and the care which this person uses in spreading Nutella is tantamount to a religious experience, carefully covering all surface area and corners with creamy Nutella. Thickly or thinly spread? That’s their prerogative. Be sure not to interrupt them during the procedure as harm may befall you.
  • The Stacker. This person stacks as much Nutella as possible onto the surface level available, trying to achieve as much height possible in proportion to the horizontal area of their chosen Nutella sidekick. The accompaniment is merely an afterthought and it’s Nutella which takes the main stage, though the cracker/bread/cookie is usually chosen for its strength and structural integrity at being able to bear a large load of Nutella.
  • The Sandwicher (paninaiolo). Using a baguette or some simple white bread, this person prefers to lovingly surround Nutella with carbohydrates before surrendering to temptation, in the hopes the carbs will slow down further consumption of said elixir.
  • The Chef (aka In Denial). This person has a high degree of self-imposed control and prefers not to eat Nutella in its natural form, but cooked or baked into other dishes. Not because they don’t like the taste of Nutella on its own, but because they like it too much and are afraid of themselves in the Spooner or Naturalist forms.

Which Nutella Lover are you?

Now are you ready to break the seal? Now that you know how to eat it, here’s what you can eat it with! Check our Nutella Day Recipes page for some more inspiration and we look forward to your contributions tomorrow for World Nutella Day!

    I’ve never hear of it until this blog. Checking it out online, it appears to be a chocolate and hazelnut “peanutbutter” kind of thing. I’m not big on hazelnuts but it might be interesting to get some and see what its like.

    Did I mention the devonshire cream????

    satchel, lover of nutella // Feb 6, 2009 at 1:29 am

    it wasnt an option, but i prefer eating my nutella off a knife, not a spoon. and straight is how i usually eat my nutella, but ill eat it with anything that could add to the experience. a list cant be made of this wonderful creation’s accompaniments. there are infinite combinations of nutella and what you can eat it with. the strangest food ive topped nutella with is probably italian sausage, but i havent been keeping track.

    I had no idea it was World Nutella Day until about 5 minutes ago when I ran across your blog via David Lebovitz’s and I can’t believe it. I always thought I was alone in my Nutella addiction. :) How great. My favorite nutella vehicle is sour green apples and nutella on a spoon. Use the nutella as dip till you run out of apples and then lick the spoon. Yum.

    personally, i believe any other way of eating nutella besides with a spoon or a finger and prehaps from another’s body is a sin against The Substance. i mean, show some respest to The Substance! to ruin it by adding lesser tastes like bread and fruit!

    i like it from the fridge. it’s cold and firm on the inside and melts wonderfully once inside my mouth.

    i am dreaming of ferrero making a nutella-filled chocolate, perhaps a nice 55% of cocoa solids in the shell, filled with real nutella…

    mark, nutellicious! // Feb 10, 2009 at 9:31 pm

    I was used to eating it with bread and then dip the knife again by itself in the jar to get a bit extra.
    now i stopped using the bread but i still like the knife!
    on the edge a bit..but carefull always. hehe

    The absolute BEST way to eat nutella ( to my mothers displeasure of course =D)
    take 2 chocolate ripple biscuits and slather one with nutella- the more the better- and the other with whipped cream.
    now place together and enjoy…
    MmmmMmmm *drool* =D

    Karin // Jul 27, 2009 at 8:45 pm

    I put nutella on one half of a slightly-toasted English muffin and creme cheese on the other half. Put them together like a sandwich and enjoy! The German and Swiss have the best Nutella–the US version has too much sugar for my liking.

    A recipe for the best oatmeal in the world:
    Quantities specified serve 1, multiply by integer coefficients as necessary. Cook time remains constant.
    3/4 c. oatmeal (not instant!)
    1/4 c. spiced apple cider
    5/4 c. H2O
    1 “handful” of pecans and almonds
    1 “shake” of an equal mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger
    1 tbsp. Nutella.

    Combine all solid ingredients (except Nutella) in bowl while bringing liquids to a boil. Add solid ingredients to boiling diluted cider solution, return to boiling then immediately reduce to medium heat. Add Nutella, stir frequently. From this point, cook for 7-10 minutes to desired consistency.

    The tastiest way to eat this awesome Nutella is to mix in into a fresh snowball, then hurl the snowball at someone’s face, hopefully a clean face, then lick off the cheeks, the ears, and especially the nose since you victim’s tongue can’t reach those parts.

    Ahhh– am I the only weird one here? I tried Nutella back in high school and I didn’t care for it at all! It tasted really chalky to me… I was hoping for a chocolate fudge taste and definitely didn’t get one. Maybe it had expired– does it expire?

    sami // Feb 3, 2010 at 9:36 am

    WOW! i love NUTELLA SMORE”S they are very very very good, but most of the time i just eat it with a butter knife straight outta the jar, and i tried it on a few other things and thought it was ok but the grossest thing i ever tried it on was probably a banana not a good flavor! ick…..there should be a white chocolate nutella OMFG! im a genious…maybe there is one but o well..!

    Kami // Mar 1, 2010 at 4:05 am

    I’m definitely the spreader–but oh the things I can spread it on! The crazy thing is, I had NEVER heard of Nutella prior to 1999 when I moved to a TINY FARMING VILLAGE near Spangdahlem (close to Trier) GERMANY! In Europe, Nutella is a breakfast staple much like jams and jellies! The restaurants and coffee shops around here (at least in the southern U.S.) have NO IDEA what they/their customers are missing out on by failing to provide Nutella as much as they provide ketchup and sugar!

    Just last night, I had mixed one layer of Peanut Butter and then Nutella on top of that..Ohhhhh man. What a treat that was! Also on top of cold cold ice cream…which will cause it to harden like a gooey shell of some sort. Very good. I just heard about Nutella recently and it was “love at first bite” ;)

    jock // Apr 20, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    learned about Nutella from a french nephew, who put it about one centimeter thick on his bread, then told me what it was. brought several jars home with me to Texas. when that ran out, tried the USA/Canada version. it is horrible. now when i go to Brussels, or when friends or relatives visit here from Brussels, i remind them there is no u.s. customs limit on the number of jars that can be brought into the USA in their luggage. and it is good after the “use by” date. they take American peanut butter back to Brussels. i usually eat it on french or whole grain bread, but have been known to use a spoon. all my nephews and nieces in Europe swear they can tell the difference between the Nutella from France, Italy, Germany, and all the other countries.

    I discovered Nutella not until in my 20s. I vacillate between being a straight-out-of-jar eater, or making a Fluffernutter on good, thick soft whole-wheat bread with Nutella (and sometimes a dash of peanut butter in between), and yes, filling a mug with Edy’s Vanilla Ice Cream with little swabs of Nutella interspersed between the ice cream spoonfuls — it hardens a bit and has the texture and taste of good ice cream parlor hot fudge cooling down. Nutella makes my eyes roll back in my head! thank you for this great blog. :)

    I LOVE NUTELLA! Seriously is this what it feels like to have an addiction? I just discovered Nutella at a restaurant in NYC. They stuffed french toast with it and then served it with a banana bourbon sauce and fresh whipped cream! I’m actually salivating just thinking about it. My do it yourself favorite is Nutella, spread thinly on deli slices (bread), sliced banana and sprinkled with almonds, cranberry and raisins!

    After passing by Nutella in various supermarkets for years, I finally bit the bullet and got a jar in today’s grocery order. Tried it for the first time just ten minutes ago, and… o…m…f…g…, hehe. Only question is, do I leave it in the fridge (semi-hard and yummy, a candy bar on a spoon) or put it in the cupboard (easier to spread and try some of the delicious suggestions here). Decisions, decisions! :)

  • 74
    Tate // Dec 13, 2010 at 7:05 am

    On pretzels (particularly the stick kind because they can get further into the jar), on toast, as a jelly replacement for sandwiches, as a peanut butter replacement for sandwiches, on pancakes, on waffles, on biscuits, on cookies, with plain oatmeal, , on a spoon, on a fork, on a finger, on a knife, and pretty much everywhere else!

    My daughter convinced me to buy Nutella so she could try. I was skeptical at first. But now I keep a jar at home and at work. I love it. I ususally put it on a slice of whole wheat bread and fold it over. It’s a quick breakfast like that when I’m rushing out the door. I will definatley have to try some of these other ideas. They sound awesome.

    Nutella and sliced banana sandwich.

    Nutella and Marshmellow Fluff spread over pancakes or crepes.

    Both require a glass of milk, with the jar of Nutella left on the table for any extra needed :)

    I’m a spooner, why on earth would anyone want to masquerade the taste of Nutella. Eating it alone with a spoon is the only way you can get the true scrumptious, delightful, mouthwatering, delicious taste of Nutella.
    Or if you must, on an Italian Panino, but then again, you must really overload your panino with Nutella, or you will not get the full taste Nutella, the taste will be shared with the Panino, Oh forget it, I love Nutella, way too much to put it on anything, spooning is the best way for me. :)))) I love you Nutella !

    Hello Nutella lovers!

    I have a quick favor to ask you. I am a business school student and for my marketing class this semester I am doing a project on Nutella. Part of the project requires that I get information from Nutella consumers, so I put together a web survey to do just that.

    If any of you have 15 minutes (and are U.S. residents) could you fill out this survey for me? I would be eternally grateful to get your thoughts on the product!

    Thank you!

    Dip gummy worms in it. Yum!

  • 88
    nicole // Mar 18, 2011 at 1:51 am

    As a dip for:

    –Pringles STIX (honey butter flavor)
    –Raisin Bagel Chips
    –’Nilla Wafers or Teddy Grahams

    Also, it’s a good filling for “Ants on a Log” (3″ stalks of celery usually filled with peanut butter and topped with raisins or dried cherries)

    Also, it’s yummy folded into Cool Whip which is then poured into a graham cracker crust then frozen

    Also, it’s a nice topping for a saltine or a Ritz cracker when drizzled with caramel ice cream topping

    Also, it’s pretty good spread on a tortilla then covered with cherry preserves and rolled up like a taquita…after each bite, dip the end in a cinnamon-sugar mixture :)

    Oh, nutella. I’ve only recently tried it, and introduced all my friends to it, and they love it! though I do wonder if those european versions ARE better than the american. I guess I’ll have to find out someday! anyways, I’m a finger dipper, but I like to spread mine on waffles in the morning, or spread them on ritz for a sweet and salty snack. sooo good!!

    I was actually going to go and get some ice cream when I came across this website. Instead I took a spoon to a container of nutella and I was satisfied :)

    Also I tastes really good on Aparle-G. It’s this sweet indian buscuit that I like, dip it in nutella and you’ve gone to heaven

    Amber // Aug 20, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    You can get nutella at Wal-Mart or World Market <3 I just bought a huge container at world market. When I went to Italy, they had it in packages the way we have jam or butter in the little plastic containers. I brought a million of those home, I swear. Love it! I'm going to work it into my brownies tonight.

    Jamie // Aug 26, 2011 at 2:37 am

    My 3 favorite ways to eat nutella (besides off the spoon/knife)

    1. Pineapple & nutella. Sounds odd, but tastes amazing. Take a spoonful of nutella, dip a pineapple chunk in nutella (careful, it doesn’t like to stick). For extra delightfulness, sprinkle powdered sugar on. WOW!!!

    2. Nutella Bagel. Take a regular bagel, toast for 3-4 minutes, spread butter on & allow to melt, then spread nutella on.

    3. Fruit Crepes. Go to town on this one. My usual: crepe rolls, nutella spread on, place fruit on (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries for me), roll up, add cool whip or powdered sugar. serve warm (microwave for 7 seconds). Easy and delicious. I thought up all of these & now my family & girlfriend are always asking me about it.

    1 . Nutella Flan just take one egg out and replace with 3 big spoons of the Holly Goodness of Nutella
    2 . Put the jar in the fridge and it will get a bit stiff is better for spooning lol
    3 . And if you are on the low carb diet and you can’t stand the low carb bread the doesn’t toast put some Nutella on it, it will help to get it down

    James // Sep 29, 2011 at 3:09 am

    Toast two eggo waffles.
    Spread Nutella on one side of each waffle.
    Slice some banana slices on one side, and put whipped cream on the other.
    Put together and enjoy your delicious Nutella sandwhich.

    3. on waffles with raspberries and maple syrup
    4. on Townhouse crackers (just enough saltiness)

    Curtis // Sep 25, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    I agree the spoon is the preferred method as it takes no additional prep time. However, you missed the 2nd best way and that is with homemade ice cream and Nutella added while the ice cream is still churning. Then, you can top it off with a little Nutella on top for good measure. Yumm, gotta get me some now.

    So good with a Banana. I don’t have any other creative methods I’m a noob. First jar of Nutella ever, I don’t really like it on bread tho. I tried it with PB and just about barfed. Might be good with a Croissant?
    Do Ferrero Roche have Nutella in the middle? Tastes exactly the same to me. It was the first thing I thought of when I had my first finger dip.

    @Brenna – I haven’t tasted it, and I used to be a fan of JIF growing up, but I am a little skeptical. I’ll have to seek it out on my next trip to the US. Have you tried it?

  • 148
    Brenna // Apr 6, 2013 at 1:47 am

    I have, they make 2 flavors & the one i tried was mocha cappocino, (i think the other is mocha) but it still has the hazelnut in it. The jif product is a lot thicker, not as creamy… I prefer Nutella, but the Jif is a little cheaper.
