Nutella, the world’s favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread, turns 50 this year. To celebrate this milestone, Ferrero, the company that makes Nutella, has asked fans to share their most memorable moments that involve the beloved hazelnut spread. Nutella was established on April 20, 1964 by Italian company Ferrero. The creator of the spread was Michele Ferrero, who developed the secret recipe and came up with the catchy name by joining the English word for hazelnut and abbreviating it as “nut” with the Latin suffix “ella.”
