Nutella is a hazelnut spread made from hazelnuts, cocoa, and milk. It has a chocolaty taste with a hint of roasted hazelnuts. It can be eaten with almost anything and is most commonly eaten with bread, crackers, bagels, and fruit.
Nutella was invented by Pietro Ferrero in the 1940s as an alternative to chocolate which was in very short supply because of World War II. It is very popular in Europe and outsells peanut butter worldwide. It is available in many supermarkets throughout the United States.
