Nutella was first introduced to the world during World War II by Pietro Ferrero. At that time there was a shortage in cocoa supply in Italy due to the war, so Ferrero started using hazelnut instead. The product was called “Pasta Gianduja” and sold as solid blocks before they started selling the creamy version “Supercrema” in 1951. Later in 1964 Michele, Ferrero’s son, renamed it to become “Nutella”.
The first World Nutella Day was founded by the American Food Blogger Sara Rosso in 2007.
