World’s First GLUTEN FREE Nutella Cafe Opens in Chicago, USA…

Following several popular popups,the official Nutella café run by Ferrero themselves has opened in Chicago, USA. Of course, Pure Nutella is GLUTEN FREE but not all the products on offer at this stand-alone cafe will be GLUTEN FREE so be careful. was created by an Italian bakery owner called Pietro Ferrero in the 1940s. He decided to try and create a cheaper alternative to chocolate, which, due to the Second World War, was in short supply. It was made by combining hazelnuts, which were easily available locally, and a little cocoa; Nutella name came about as a result of combining the English word ‘nut’ and the Latin suffix for sweet – ‘ella’. For many years, Italian shops would offer children who came in with a slice of bread a free smear of Nutella to put on it and in 2012, French proposals to increase tax increase on palm oil – one of Nutella’s main ingredients – sparked an international row. The amendment became known as the ‘Nutella tax’. It is reported by Nutella that at the start of 2015, one jar of Nutella was sold every 2.5 seconds worldwide.
