World Nutella Day, Nutella Banana Bread
Nutella is the mother of all spreads. It tastes good on virtually everything. Nutella originated in Italy at the end of World War II. Cocoa was hard to come by so Pietro Ferrero made a ton of sweet paste out of cocoa. He first called it Giandujot. In 1951 he made the paste into a spreadable form. His son then recreated the cocoa spread into a creamy hazelnut and cocoa spread. Today, we call it Nutella.
