Where have you been all my life?

Although I consider growing up Southern to be a privilege, sometimes I discover that I've missed out on certain things because they were not necessarily popular or common in the South. Recently I discovered one such thing: Nutella.

I seriously had never even heard of Nutella until a couple of weeks ago. I saw it at the grocery store the other day and was curious what all of the hype was about. So I tried it today and I think I may now be addicted. It was AMAZING! I ate a bit on some toast and I just kept thinking "I am eating chocolate toast! This is the best thing ever!"

I was also introduced to the Fluffer-Nutter sandwich this year (again, not something I ever encountered in my 26 years as a Louisianian). Southerners love marshmellows and peanut butter, so how have we been missing out on the Fluffer-Nutter?!?

I am already looking forward to my Nutella breakfast tomorrow. Starting the day with chocolate doesn't get much better than that!

I still have yet to try Nutella. My friend raves about it all the time. I really need to run and get a jar!

WHAT!?? You have certainly been missing out, and need to overindulge just to make up for it, ha! I love Nutella - it's the best! I made some cupcakes with Nutella filling and they were so wonderful....

Dips some banannas into it. That is the best!

you could always do a chocolate fluffer-nutter.

I introduced my husband to Nutella a few months ago and he goes through it like crazy!

World Market has their generic version in a HUGE container for like $4 (the price of a small container of nutella) just an FYI!
