It’s the perfect food! Don’t take yourself so seriously that you cannot enjoy the satisfaction of dipping a spoon straight into the jar, scooping up a huge mound of Nutella and savoring every last bit of it. If you’ve never tried it, then you get a pass (but try it), if you don’t enjoy it then you are either A) a liar or B) a liar. I don’t know what type of tree Nutella grows on but I have to believe that’s what was planted in the Garden of Eden and that is what caused Eve to give in. And who can blame Adam for giving in? Seriously, not only is it good for you (which goes without saying) but it actually tastes great too! If you worked out – it’s the perfect protein source, if you’re stressed – it’s the perfect binge food, if you’ve got that sweet tooth – dive in. It may be the only food that get’s worse when added to anything. And people try. Nutella and banana, Nutella and graham cracker, Nutella brownies, Nutella and ice cream, Nutella on toast, Nutella on pancakes. Like someone once said, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
So do yourself a favor, next time you have a hankerin’ for…anything get out the spoon, grab a jar of Nutella and go to town. If you’ve got a better alternative, I’d love to hear it.
