I love Nutella. It’s a recent favorite, as I first tasted the insanely delicious chocolate and hazlenut spread about 6 or 7 years ago. If you haven’t tried it, think peanut butter, but sweeter and deeply chocolatey. In fact, it’s typically stocked next to peanut butter in the grocery store. It’s also pretty close calorie and fat-wise, but the sugar is much higher in Nutella than in peanut butter.
I occasionally buy a jar, but it’s a dangerous purchase since I’m the only one that likes it. Because I’m focusing on eating healthier I haven’t had it for awhile, and the craving has grown to obsession. Did I say obsession? I meant to say OBSESSION.
I’ve decided the only solution to purge this frantic desire is to have a Nutella free-for-all. One day where I can have as much Nutella as I want until I’m sickened at the sight of it. What? It could happen.
I’ve chosen this Saturday since my regular weigh-in day is Friday. That allows almost a week to undo all the damage a 20 ton vat of Nutella will do to my weight loss efforts.
I was debating writing this post in order to proclaim Saturday, February 5th as Viv’s Nutella Day and invite folks to indulge as I am. But I hesitated because big girls don’t like to trumpet their fatty-fatty-bo-batty indulgences. On a lark, I did a search and discovered that there is already an established Nutella Day. In fact, the 5th World Nutella Day is … wait for it … Saturday, February 5th! The same day I’m doing mine! How could I not post and encourage folks to join me?

Let me know in the comments if you’ll be indulging in any way on Saturday, as I’m curious to see who else is a fan of the sticky, dark deliciousness that *is* Nutella.
Now, does anyone know where I can find a 20 ton vat of Nutella?

Sounds like a plan. I’m going to see if my local co-op still carries a non-dairy chocolate-hazelnut spread so I can join you.
Andrea, yay! I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
No, I don’t.
And if I did, it would be my medico-moral obligation to stop you.
Although, if it was beer… hmmm…
That can be arranged, you know… although I *do* prefer rum.
Oh, GOD I love Nutella. We can’t have it in the house. I would eat it with a spoon.
Oh, I’m not opening it until breakfast and then tossing what’s left at the end of the day. Assuming that I haven’t already polished it off. 😉
@Viv – Sweet merciful pirates, we will have a rum day… some-day.
Have you tried Kraken rum yet?
YES! And it’s delicious! Love it!
@Viv – Excellent.
*makes devious plans*
Nutella is very rare in my house having two diabetic parents… When I do buy it i enjoy it on some cantaloupe, honeydew, apples… Surprisingly enough it does go well on anything. I have to be careful the chocolateness is a migraine trigger for me.
The cocoa is pretty low, but yes chocolate can be a migraine trigger. Luckily, I’ve not seen a correlation between my intake of it and migraines. It never occurred to me to try it on those fruits, I’ll have to incorporate them next year! Thanks for the ideas!
Oh and Costco sells 2 packs of the jumbo size containers I don’t know if theyre down In VA. Worst case I ship you some lol.
