The Ferrero company, maker of Nutella, may not divulge its trade secrets, but it has a great website that includes — along with a Nutella locator and a ‘Tell a Friend’ option — ‘Delicious Facts’ about the spread.

Here are some of the recent entries on the site, courtesy of Nutella U.S.A.:


— Nutella’s 40th anniversary celebration is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest breakfast, having hosted 27,854 people at the AufShalke Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, on May 29, 2005.

— The amount of Nutella produced worldwide in one day is equivalent to nearly three times the weight of the Statue of Liberty.

— More than 70 million hazelnuts are used worldwide each day in the production of Nutella.

— The number of jars sold annually, if lined up, would wrap around the moon four times.

— The amount of Nutella produced in a day could provide every person in San Diego with one jar.
