The History of World Nutella Day

World Nutella Day was created in 2007 when Sara Rosso, an American blogger living in Italy, thought that there were many days in the year but no day set aside to appreciate Nutella. Why not?

And World Nutella Day was born.

Sara recruited Shelley from At Home in Rome to be her partner in crime for World Nutella Day 2007. In 2008 Michelle from Bleeding Espresso took over duties as co-host and we’ve been spreading World Nutella Day love ever since!

Here’s some info about your multi-talented World Nutella Day hosts! For press or other inquires, please contact us at contact //at// nutelladay (dot) com
