Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is “nostalgic”. I’m not nostalgic about many things (I’m more of a forward looking person) but I have the perfect item for this week’s theme: Nutella.
Having been born and raised in France, I grew up on Nutella, eating it on many different things: baguettes, croissants, biscottes, bananas, crepes, and one of my favorite, simply by the spoon. There’s no better pick-me-up and I think productive brains thrive on Nutella.
I’ve eaten Nutella my whole life and every time I open a jar and smell its hazelnut chocolate paste, random childhood memories come back to mind. And now I’ve passed on the childhood memories to my kids, in a good and a bad way. My youngest loves it, my eldest doesn’t like the smell of it. He doesn’t know what’s good for him! One thing the three of us have in common though is, we can’t stand peanut butter. The overwhelming smell and the sticky texture turn us off big time. None of that with Nutella!
If you’re a Nutella fan, please free to chime in!
