Nutella is amazing on many things. Toast, crepes, cakes, a spoon, and now, our hair. 

One salon, based in the Lebanon, has gained international attention for using Nutella as a hair treatment in it's cut and colours.

The salon, called Abed & Samer, has posted viral videos of the yummy hazelnut treat being incorporated into their professional hair styling. 

With it's high fat and protein content, hypothetically the sweet, chocolatey goodness could be good for your hair, but there is no scientific evidence to back this up.

The salon also employs the use of whipped cream, caramel, chocolate sauce and condensed milk to tone, dye and treat the hair. 

While the treatment sounds a little sticky, we'd opt for Nutella-scented tresses in a heart beat.

Until the method makes it's way to Irish shores, we'll be treating ourselves to some Nutella on toast. 


On pancakes, a slice of toast or simply by the spoonful, there aren't many foods that can compete with gold old Nutella. 

To celebrate World Nutella Day (we know, isn't it great that a day of the calendar is dedicated to the famous hazelnut spread?), we have scrolled the Internet to find some properly scrumptious recipes using it as a guest star ingredient. 

Warning: serious drooling ahead…

1. Chocolate cake donuts with Nutella glaze


2. Nutella banana cruffins


3. Salted caramel and Nutella stuffed double chocolate chip cookies


4. Nutella banana swirl muffins


5. Nutella soufflés


6. Nutella and caramel mug cake


7. Nutella layer cake


8. Nutella cheesecake dip


9. Salted Nutella and peanut butter sandwich cookies


10. Nutella cupcakes


11. Nutella brownies


12. Easy Nutella cheesecake






Ladies, take note!

Monday, February 5, marks World Nutella Day, and to celebrate, one Dublin restaurant is throwing the ultimate Nutella-themed party.

Ruby's Pizza Bar and Grill, located in Point Square and in Swords Pavillions, is offering diners a mouth-watering selection of sweet treats including a Nutella Pizza, Nutella Burger, Nutella Cheesecake and a Nutella Cocktail.

Now, we don't know about you, but that sounds like our dream menu.

So, if you fancy tucking into any of these drool-worthy dishes, Ruby's will be serving the menu on Monday, February 5, from 12pm-9pm, and with all items coming in at just €5.00, it'd be rude not to, really.

Table for three, please.



What would you do do get your hands on a sweet, sweet discounted jar of Nutella?

Well, if you're anything like our French neighbours, apparently rioting, fighting and generally causing chaos is the answer. 

Several supermarkets owned by Intermarche across France offered a whopping 70pc off jars of Nutella, and French shoppers literally went crazy for the deal. 

The sale saw prices drop from €4.70 to a measly €1.40. 

In one video posted on Twitter, shoppers are seen pushing and shoving in order to acquire as many jars as possible.

In a statement to The Associated Press, Ferrero, the makers of the delicious hazelnut spread, said: 'We want to clarify that the decision for the special offer was taken unilaterally by Intermarche.'

'We regret the consequences of this operation, which created confusion and disappointment in the consumers’ minds.'

Not going to lie, we would probably be quite excited at the prospect of discounted Nutella, but we probably wouldn't be punching people in the face over it. 




One Irish artist has pushed the colouring pencils aside and has instead looked to his kitchen cupboard in search of a more unconventional material.

Mike Gibson, who was crowned ‘Creative of the Year’ at last year's SHEmazing HP Awards, has discovered the second-best use for Nutella, (the first being spooning it into our mouths) and is creating celebrity portraits made entirely from the tasty treat.

Over the past few years, the Laois native has built an impressive online following thanks to his hyper-realistic celebrity portraits and general creative flair.

The now 23-year-old showed an interest in drawing from an early age, and thanks to encouragement from his parents and teachers, he was able to build up an incredible skill-set during his teenage years.

Mike began uploading his work to Facebook five years ago and the images quickly gained a lot of interest online.

Since then, his drawings have been shared by thousands of fans across the world, and the young artists Instagram page, mikegibsonartwork, now boasts over 60,000 followers.

His work has been praised by a number of high-profile celebs including Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, Meghan Trainor and Jessy J.

However, it's Mike's latest creative endeavour that really has people talking.

Adele, Conor McGregor, James Kavanagh and Taylor Swift are just some of the celebrities to have undergone a Nutella make-over – and while we never thought we'd say this, these Nutella portraits actually do look too good to eat.


Sorry the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now,why? Cause she’s SPREAD

Hello from the other Slice? Painted Adele using just Nutella

One thing’s for sure, there’s a bright future ahead for this talented young artist, and we can't wait to see what he does next.


There are some things in life that just shouldn't be messed with – your morning coffee, that mandatory hangover spice bag, and above all else, that little jar of goodness that is Nutella. 

Whether you prefer yours spread on toast, dolloped on ice-cream, or hey, let's be real, straight from the jar – there are many ways to enjoy this magical creation.

It's versatile, delicious, and perfect just the way it is.

Which is why we were horrified to discover that the creators of the popular hazelnut spread have gone and changed the recipe with no warning whatsoever.

The new recipe includes an increased amount of powdered skimmed milk and sugar, which depending on the size of your sweet tooth, could be a good or a bad thing.

A spokesperson from Ferrero, Nutella's parent company assured customers that the new changes were not a cause for concern.

“The quality … and all the other characteristics of Nutella remain the same.”

However, it's been reported that the new-recipe jars contain a spread that is lighter in colour, which has led many concerned chocolate-lovers to believe that cacao levels have been sacrificed.

Needless to say, the change has sparked outrage across Twitter, and quite frankly, we feel their pain.

It's not broken; don't fix it! 


Okay, everyone remain calm, but rumour has it Oreo are adding a Nutella-style flavour to its popular biscuit range.

While the news has yet to be confirmed, an image showing the packaging for the limited edition product has surfaced online – and sweet-lovers around the world are beyond excited.

The photo began circulating after it appeared on the junkbanter Instagram, (a page devoted to exciting flavours and limited edition confectionery products), along with the caption:

“They can’t call them Nutella Oreos, but I can! Nutella Oreos are on the horizon. Timeframe unknown. This is not a joke. The photo quality is.”

Needles to say, people went wild at the thoughts of this glorious combination, with one user commenting: “OK is this for real cause my son and I want to know if I have to change career and become a thief, especially since I live in the only place on earth where we can't get anything good lol.”

Another wrote: “AHHHHHH!!!!! This is the best thing I have seen all year!”

If it's true, the flavour creators at Oreo deserve a massive raise – especially seeing as they recently revealed a new chocolate brownie flavour after fans were asked to tweet what their dream Oreo combination using the hashtag #myOREOCreation.

Fingers crossed these bad boys will be hitting our shelves sooner rather than later!


Don't have room for dinner and dessert? Why not combine the two?

Pastry chefs at Tella Balls Dessert, a Sydney café known for its glorious Nutella-filled creations, have just conjured up the ultimate lasagne-style dish.

Having originally found their niche in indulgent milkshakes, café owners, Aki Daikos and Simon Kappotos, say they enjoy exploring their culinary skills.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Aki said: “We love putting a spin on food and getting experimental in the kitchen, so we thought, why not create a savoury dish, sweet using Nutella.”

Unlike a traditional Italian lasagne, you won't find any pasta or tomatoes in this sweet dish.

Made up of layers of rich chocolate mousse and fresh cream, this decadent tower is served on top of a chocolate biscuit base and paired with lashings of tasty Nutella.

And the paste-esque dishes don't stop there.

'Pastaella' is a fettuccine-inspired style crepe served with milk and white chocolate sauce, and finished with a dollop of the house-made vanilla bean gelato.

“It’s all about great taste. Chocolate and Nutella are food for the soul,” Aki said.

Never a truer word said, Aki. So, who's up for a trip down under?



"At this point we don't know what their motive was," so said police spokesperson, Martin Ahlick, when referring to the theft of a vehicle carrying 22 tonnes of Nutella, and a variety of Kinder products.

Forgive us for being glib, but dare we say it might have been the contents of the truck that motivated the opportunistic thieves in the German town of Neustadt in Hesse in recent weeks.

Well, that's what our motivation would have been, anyway. (Sorry, not sorry.)

According to reports, police in Neustadt, which is 120km northeast of Frankfurt, are currently investigating the robbery which resulted in the loss of €70,000 worth of sweet, sweet chocolate. Oh, and the truck, of course.

Addressing the potential motive, Ahlick admitted the force are not yet certain, saying: "It's not even clear if they were after the sweets or the trailer."

Urging the public to be vigilant in the wake of the confectionary heist, he added: "Anyone offered large quantities of chocolate via unconventional channels should report it to the police immediately."

You heard the man, ladies.


We've had avolattes and avocado art and we survived, but the notions radiating from the latest viral food trend has us shook. 

Whether you spread it on toast or smother your pancakes in it, there is no denying that Nutella is an exceptionally delicious chocolate treat.

One of the most satisfying ways to consume the hazelnut spread is to simply slurp it directly off the spoon,


A post shared by browncardigan.com (@browncardigan) on  

A sneaky spoonful is heaven on earth, but we'd never pay a fiver for the pleasure of doing so. 

After all, you'd get an entire jar for that price, so why would anyone in their right minds think that the public would part ways with five quid for a paltry sampling of the stuff.

This is exactly what one Melbourne Cafe, Spoonful of Sugar, has allegedly tried to make 'a thing.'

The cafe, which is said to be hosting a pop-up store in a secret location soon, also boasts spoonfuls of peanut butter and jelly and butterscotch on the menu. 

Some foodie fans are critical of the Spoonful of Sugar concept, speculating that the cafe is a bit of a hoax. 

However, the owner of the page confirmed to Buzzfeed that the cafe was happening.

Bit of a pisstake?

We think so, otherwise the hipster food trends of 2017 are getting out of hand. 


Listen, I love flowers as much as the next person, but they die – and it is sad every time. 

However, you know what won't die? Our love of donuts, that's what.  


We love when you guys send thoughtful, inspirational messages to each other … #dessertboxes

With that in mind, we would like to draw your attention to our latest Internet discovery, in the form of Nutella donut bouquets – yes, we're serious.

The magical creation comes from Dessert Boxes, who have been major players in the doughnut bouquet game for quite some time now.

The Sydney based company haven't started shipping internationally as of yet,but we are PRAYING that this happens soon.


Flowers? Yeah, nah. #doughnutbouquet#donutbouquet#dessertboxes

They recently had their first proposal order, which we cannot deny, is literally everything we would look for in a marriage proposal. 

However, if proposals are no longer for you, the company also cover birthday boxes, apology bouquets and dessert boxes for special events. 


Donuts for 1? #dessertboxes#donuts

We especially enjoy the way the company include Nutella syringes, tiny vodka bottles and, in some cases, CASH. 

Prices for these amazing gift boxes and bouquets start at $35 AUS, and we are kind of tempted to move to Sydney.

Anyone else? 



Whether you spread it on toast or slurp it directly off the spoon, there is no doubting that Nutella is an exceptionally delicious chocolate treat.

If you are lucky enough to reside in Chicago (or maybe you're jetting over there on your J1) then you're in for the biggest treat of all, as Ferrero is now opening their first restaurant, the Nutella Cafe.

The cafejust opened up, and we're already plotting a trip to the States to coincide with our cheat days.

The menu boasts mouthwatering items such as warm, grilled baguettes with Nutella and roasted hazelnut and blueberry granola with yoghurt and Nutella. 

There will also be Italian specialties like Panzanella fruit salad, and gelato with Nutella. 


A post shared by Jenny Colacci (@jennycolacci) on

There will also be certain menu items without the hazelnut spread, but we're not sure why. 

The restaurant is located right by Chicago's famous Millennium Park, so if you're in the area, get yourself down there. 

Until then, we'll be munching on our toast while dreaming wistfully of all the Nutella recipes we'd love to be sampling…
