You know what?
I love nutella.
It would have been my name except that it’ll make me look like a nut.
But I love it anyway.
I love its smooth, creamy, and chocolaty taste.
Drives me nuts!
And I must admit, it adds a certain oomph to my day too.
I have it for lunch every day at precisely 12pm because according to Ayurveda, our digestive systems function at their optimum between 12-2pm. One single, triangular sandwich is all I have for lunch and that’s how I stick to my optimum weight of 46kg.
I haven’t put on a single gram since I waved goodbye to my teachers at Katong Convent.
Who would have thought that this hazelnut chocolate spread invented in Alba, Italy by Pietro Ferrero, a pastry maker, would find its way to my heart? And grow in importance each passing year!
History remembers that there was a shortage of cocoa due to World War II rationing, and that’s how Pietro thought up this grand plan – to cut hazelnut into the dwindling chocolate supply.
Thank God for this great invention! Wanna know how best to finish a bottle? Add a scoop of your favourite vanilla ice-cream…hmm! Shiok-a-doo!
