About Nutella® Hazelnut Spread

Nutella® hazelnut spread was originally introduced by Ferrero in Italy in the 1960's and first imported to the U.S. over 25 years ago. The popularity of Nutella® has grown steadily over the years, and it is the number one selling branded hazelnut spread in America.

People of all ages enjoy Nutella®, which gets its unique taste from ingredients like roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and cocoa. In addition, Nutella® is gluten free and has no artificial colors or preservatives. It can be found in grocery stores, warehouse clubs and mass merchandisers, and is generally found near the peanut butter and sweet spreads section.

Nutella® celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2014. As part of the celebration, the Nutella® “Spread the Happy” Truck Tour visited 16 cities in the U.S. last year. For more information, go to
