Kobe Bryant's favorite spread.

Kobe Bryant's favorite spread. *Insert joke here* After a long, exhausting day of running drills in practice and shooting free throws, nothing spells refreshment quite like N-U-T-E-L-L-A. Maybe Cookie Dough Sport wasn't so far off the mark. Plus, the rest of the page is truly frightening.

Nutella is awesome. We had to stop buying it because I was eating it straight from the jar.

"Mmmm, Nutella..." *Homer-style drooling*

I spawned a brand-new religion on IRC last night. Hazeltunianism. Believers must believe in their heart of hearts that hazelnuts are the presence of God on earth.

Something else that's crack-like: Pirouline. The hazelnut ones come in huge tins. Office Max(!) has the tins for $5.99. Mmmm. Where are my keys?

Nusco isn't so bad either, come to think of it.

Check out the devilish look on the face of that kid with the laptop. What's the message here? Looks like he just filled every open slot with Nutella and can't wait for mom to find out!

Before visiting the link I thought Kobe was now into P2P mp3 sharing.

Nutella is not a spread!
Nutella must be eaten on a spoon! A large one! Preferably whilst hiding in a closet.
Oh, the memory of my shame.

I love the collectible glasses we get here, with weird Australian cartoon figures you never heard of.

Confession: I smuggled a jar of Nutella back from Europe in 1965. It was worth the risk! Now, I eat it on bread with a glass of milk. It's wonderful!

I lost a tooth biting into a Nutella sandwich when I was younger. It wasn't so much the Nutella as the crusty bread it was spread on.

Where I come from, it's important to spread a fat layer of butter on the bread underneath the Nutella. Yummm.

Nutella is German, of course. Check out the German site for pictures of Deutsche Nutellaesserei. Bittesehr.

When it comes to spreads, THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE.

Food thread, food thread, coming through, lookout....

I was never so happy as the day I saw Nutella for sale at the local supermarket. Hey, I'm pathetic, gotta take my little pleasures where I can find 'em.

Also, this stuff is really easy to make. Butter, sugar, chocolate, nuts in appropriate proprortions. What's even better is making it with dark chocolate and toasted ground almonds. Thicken it up a little, and you have a chocolate pate.

Incidentally, the Only Proper Way to eat Nutella is on Nilla Wafers.

Nutella is Italian, a trademark of Ferrero, an Italian brand.
