Nutella is one of the World's most recognizeable products, and has a lovely image in popular culture. Everywhere you might be, you say "Nutella" and we bet the reaction on the face in front of you is a smile. People can't help but smile, when talking about chocolate cream. The product itself, Nutella, has been patented in 1964, and today we write this article to properly celebrate its 50th birthday!
Anyway, the history of this delicious hazelnut cream has older roots.
The idea of Nutella started with Pietro Ferrero (yes, the founder of the industrial family who gave us Ferrero and its Ferrero Rocher, Pocket Coffee, Kinder Ferrero and so on) commercialized a particular kind of hazelnut, typical of Piedmont region, north of Italy. The hazelnut in question was the "Nocciola Tonda Gentile delle Langhe", and it is the base of the Gianduja chocolate, now pretty famous too!

We understand that, do not worry! Happy birthday, Nutella! ;)
