What’s the best thing in the world? Wine. And what’s the next best thing to wine? Nutella, obviously. So when Mario Batali’s massive NYC-based Italian marketplace, Eataly, was forced to close its wine shop due to a technicality in New York State Liquor Authority laws, he decided to dedicate the space to the next best thing: nutella. A nutella bar, to be exact, where customers can choose from a wide variety of breads, crepes, and pastries, slathered with Nutella to order. Plus, if you stop in on Monday, May 12th, between 5PM and 9PM, you can score a free slice of pane con Nutella, aka a hunk of rustic bread slathered with the magical spread. Go get your free Nutella, New Yorkers, you totally deserve it! The rest of us can drool over the full menu here, and plan our trips accordingly. [Gothamist]

Grinch status, right? Luckily the story doesn’t end there. Keep reading »
First, a couple of dudes stole $65,000 worth of chicken wings. Then someone stole 42,000 pounds of Muenster cheese. And now, thieves have made off with $21,000 worth of Nutella. Over the weekend, the town of Niederaula, Germany, was robbed of seven palettes of Nutella. The Nutella addicts stole the jars from a parked semi-truck trailer.
And that leads me to believe that someone is getting ready to throw the world’s biggest weird-combinations-of-food party. What could you make with all that chicken, Nutella and cheese? Let’s go to the cookbooks, shall we? Keep reading »
What do you get when you combine delicious fried donuts and Nutella hazelnut spread? The donutella, which also happens to be one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, right? At least that’s what one fourth grader thought. His teacher was kind enough to share his masterful creation with the folks at Reddit, and we’re so glad. We think a Donutella is a great idea. What amazing fantasy desserts have you dreamed up? [Reddit]
