World Nutella Day Celebrates 5th Anniversary on February 5th

January 26th, 2011 · Tags: Blog Event · Nutella Day

Five years ago, I had a dream that one day all Nutella lovers would unite and eat Nutella for just one day. And a holiday was born! Hundreds of recipes and thousands of fans later, we’re ready for the 5th anniversary of World Nutella Day!

Are you???

Read on for more information about how to participate – bloggers, copy and republish the following announcement to help spread the word! If you’re a journalist, our 2011 press release is available for your story!

Sara from Ms. Adventures in Italy and Michelle from Bleeding Espresso solemnly declare Saturday, February 5th “World Nutella Day 2011″ – a day to celebrate, to get creative with, and most importantly, to EAT Nutella.

It’s Easy!

Make a recipe using Nutella. Eat Nutella with a spoon. A big one. Make art with Nutella. Wax poetic about Nutella. Cuddle with Nutella. Strike a pose with Nutella. Re-live your first experience eating Nutella. Offer Nutella as a sacrifice. Have a Nutella-eating contest or a Nutella party!

  1. Do something, anything with Nutella. Make a recipe, take a picture of yourself eating it with a BIG spoon, make art, wax poetic, re-live your first experience eating Nutella. Have a Nutella-eating contest or even a Nutella party!
  2. Take pictures and/or upload a video then blog about it ON February 5th, 2011. In your blog post, include links to Ms Adventures in Italy, Bleeding Espresso, and World Nutella Day as well as the World Nutella Day badge/button (below – right mouse click, Save image…). Please try to post ON or as close to FEBRUARY 5 as possible so that we can create a true chocolaty hazelnut wave across the blogosphere on World Nutella Day!
  3. Email nutelladay [at] nutelladay [dot] com with the subject “Nutella Day Entry” and include:
  • Your Name
  • Your Blog’s Name
  • Your Blog’s URL
  • Your Post URL/Permalink
  • One 150×150 pixel photo

Some other ways to participate:

We will post the round-up of all submissions on Monday, February 7, 2011, but in the meantime, please feel free to post this announcement on your blog to spread the word!

And if you want to use an organic or other type of Nutella substitute, go for it! It’s all about the chocolate and hazelnut love!

    Boo, down with chocolate flavoured vegetable oil! With all the great things Italians have to offer, I don’t understand why this brown, overly sweet margarine is so popular.

    Novi makes an excellent chocolate hazelnut spread, though it seems hard to come by. I’ve only ever seen it for sale at the Metro near Busto Arsizio.
