The world-famous jar of happiness, or Nutella, is a product by the Italian company Ferrero. Many years ago, its founder Pietro Ferrero invented a chocolate loaf and called it “Giandujot.” People went crazy for this product, especially for the chocolate paste inside the loaf, so Pietro decided to produce a whole jar of the “Giandujot” paste, making it the precursor of the Nutella we know today.
Years after the successful SuperCrema by Pietro, his son came up with little recipe changes and created the super popular Nutella! Thanks to being so delicious, Nutella today sells a lot, and by lot, we mean that you could cover the Great Wall of China eight times with the number of jars of Nutella sold in a year! You can use it to prepare so many delicious desserts, and for that, we picked ten of them, so scroll along to find out more!
