Something new (to us) to be nuts about

We've found our new favorite snack: Nutella. I believe it's a European staple. Wikipedia says it was born in Italy: "Nutella is the brand name of a hazelnut-based sweet spread created by the Italian company Ferrero in the 1940s. At the time, chocolate was very limited due to the Second World War. Nutella is now marketed in over 75 countries across the globe."

You can eat it on bread or mix it in with just about anything. Rachel's thinking about using it as an icing on cupcakes; it seems like it'll work good for that.

Well, I'm off to enjoy my ice cream covered with Nutella.

We're freakin' nuts!
