Nutella party!!

Recently, I was lucky enough to have been selected to host a Mommy Party sponsored by Nutella. When I saw the email about the party, I was sooo excited! And when I was selected, you would have thought I'd won the lottery!

I grew up in Europe, and Nutella is to me what peanut butter is to my American husband. Our daughter is also a very big "Tella" fan, and enjoys some whole wheat toast with Nutella and a big glass of milk for breakfast every now and then. You could say that we have a slight addiction. My daughter and I recently made banana muffins "stuffed" with a peanut butter cup, and topped with Nutella buttercream. I used the extra buttercream as a topping for my morning toast. Mmmmmm!!!

We invited a few friends over, and had a great time! We had various ways to enjoy our Nutella: crumpets from Trader Joe's (yum!), strawberies, honey whole-wheat bread, white bread, etc... While all those were good, I still think that the best way to enjoy Nutella is straight out of the jar, with a spoon if you want to be fancy!

Our guests went home with a bag filled with goodies provided by Nutella: a neat tumbler/travel coffee mug, a small Nutella sample size pack (I wonder how long those lasted. Probably not very long! When we fly to Europe, we usually find those small packs at the hotel breakfast buffet, and stash a couple in our bags...), a very ingenious spreader that is shaped to fit the Nutella jar, therefore wasting no delicious chocolate/hazelnut spread, and a few recipe cards.

I'll try and find the photos I took, but my phone hasn't been cooperating very well lately...

Disclaimer: I did not receive any kind of financial compensation for this post/review, and Nutella provide me with the samples and gifts for my guests.

  1. This was great! My young daughter loves Nutella. Unfortunately, it's sometimes hard to find in grocery stores in Raleigh, but she would eat it for every meal if I'd let her. Thanks very much for the party and goodies!
