Have you ever loved something so much you thought it deserved a holiday? An American blogger named Sara Rosso did. That’s why she founded World Nutella® Day on February 5th, 2007.
And Nutella® fans loved it! They came together to celebrate their passion for Nutella® on social media through photos, recipes, poems, and messages. From Italy to Australia to the Americas, World Nutella® Day has since become a global phenomenon with people sharing and spreading the wonder of Nutella® at home, work, and school; in their communities off- and online; with family, friends, and fellow fans everywhere.
In 2015, Sara transferred World Nutella® Day to Ferrero (the makers of Nutella®) to help it live on and grow for years to come. So, every year we search for a new Chief Nutella® Ambassador – someone with Sara’s delicious devotion – to lead the fan celebration on World Nutella® Day. Chrissy Eckman was the first to be honored with this tasty title. Who is our 2017 Chief Nutella® Ambassador? Let’s find out.
Texas native and aspiring filmmaker Hannah Westbrook has been named the 2017 Chief Nutella Ambassador. Her fondness for Nutella blossomed while studying abroad in Spain during college. She stumbled upon the hazelnut spread in a little bakery and the rest was history. “After just one bite of Nutella, I knew I was in love!”
Hannah plans to use the Chief Nutella Ambassador task as a way to spread awareness about World Nutella Day. Her goal on February 5th is to unite fans everywhere by celebrating the globe’s devotion to Nutella.
Congrats to Hannah, our 2017 Chief Nutella® Ambassador!
