Nutella Origin

After WWII, there were not enough cocoa supplies in Italy. So a pastry maker Pietro Ferrero created his concoction made from hazelnuts, sugar, and just a little bit of cocoa that was later transformed into Nutella, by his son.

It began as a solid block called pasta gianduja which could be sliced and served on bread, but later evolved into a spreadable version called Supercrema. The Nutella name came about during 1964 as a result of combining the English word ‘nut’ and the Latin suffix for sweet – ‘ella’.
