It’s Time to Celebrate World Nutella Day!

It’s time to forget that other February holiday, and celebrate one that is a little more meaningful – World Nutella Day. In its fifth year, World Nutella Day takes place on Saturday, February 5th, and what better way to celebrate than to take a spoon and dig straight into the jar of chocolate-hazelnut goodness. However, if you want to try something a little different, there are a few places in the neighborhood that can provide you with your Nutella fix.


Head to 187 Columbus Ave (between 68th and 69th) to Bomboloni and you will find yourself in a Nutella-lovers paradise. Bomboloni, which is the name for an Italian donut, offers over twenty flavors of these crème filled Italian treats – and you guessed it, Nutella is one of the flavors (pictured above). Each Bomboloni is only $1.50, but I dare you to eat only one (I tried, It’s not possible…)

If you head a little further uptown to to 176 W. 72nd (at Amsterdam Ave.) you will find yourself at Grandaisy Bakery where you can pick up a few Nutella cookie sandwiches. Sounds simple, but how could you possibly go wrong with a thin layer of Nutella sandwiched in between delicious sugar cookies? As if the thought of Nutella cookie sandwiches could not get any better, they are then topped off with a layer of powdered sugar – talk about delicious!

Once you come back from Bomboloni and Granddaisy (that is, if you aren’t paralyzed by a food coma) visit Grom on 1796 Broadway (right by Columbus Circle) and warm up with a cup of cioccolata calda al “Bacio” This is not your average Swiss Miss hot chocolate. The “cioccolate calda al Bacio” tastes like hot, melted Nutella in a cup. You will never go back to regular hot chocolate again…trust me.

Have a happy and delicious World Nutella Day!
