Want to know more about the history of Nutella? Here you go.
The hazelnut spread started when pastry maker Pietro Ferrero combined a sweet paste of hazelnuts and sugar and just a bit of cocoa, which was very rare in post-World War II Italy. Ferrero turned the paste into a loaf, which was to be sliced and put onto bread. Eventually, he turned the loaf form into a paste that was easily spread onto bread. This was the birth of SuperCrema, the precursor to Nutella, which first came into being in 1964 when Pietro Ferrero’s son Michele tweaked the recipe.
