A Very Minor Confession

I often here excited talk about something called Nutella. I don't know what it is. When I hear people use it in a sentence, I surmise that it is something sweet or tastes like something sweet or something like that.

The thing is, I have no desire to know what Nutella is. I don't even know if I am supposed to capitalize it when writing about it. And I don't want to know whether or not I should capitalize it or not. It is important to me that I never know what Nutella is. I want to be the last person on Earth (or is it earth) who doesn't know what it is.

So there. Thanks for reading my post about Nutella.

Your welcome for reading.

Is it pronounced NUT-ella or Noo-tella? I can picture the jar in my mind, but have no idea what it is either. Don't tell me!

Just try it, you scardy-cats! It's really awesome stuff, I promise. But you might not be able to put it down once you've started.

It's pronounce "Noo-tella" and was created by an Italian, which is why you shouldn't be surprised that it is like heaven on earth!!!

Being a southerner, it doesn't surprise me that you don't know what it is but, oh my god, if you did......

Nutella is the food of the Gods. Trust me. It is like no other. You absolutely MUST try it. In fact, I can introduce you to it....we'll do Nutella and Coffee -how does that sound?? :)

I love Nutella. Every once in a while I crave it and I must have it. It becomes an obsession.

It is basically hazelnut icing in a jar. My husband eats it with a spoon, but most people spread it on something.

In Greece there is a competing brand called Merenda, which to my tastebuds is basically the same thing, but some Greeks will argue differently.

Here in Greece there is a whole supermarket section devoted to stacks of various sizes of Nutella and Merenda jars. Kinda like the way the Dutch use chocolate sprinkles.

It is so nice to live in a country where something sweet is considered ok for dining.
