Nutella is so popular and yet famous because of its unique taste and combination of chocolate, cocoa butter and hazelnuts.
Nutella was first noticed and became popular when Pietro came up with an activity or service called "Smearing", this meant that children could go to their local shops or bakery (Within the piedmont region) with a piece of bread and there would be someone there with a big loaf of Supercrema Gianduja or Nutella and would smear it onto the piece of bread. This "activity" helped and fed alot of families because of the huge shortage of food and supplies due to the first world war, At this time it was six times cheaper and more popular than chocolate.
Nutella is now said to be a quick, easy way to get kids into eating wholegrains. Nutella has no artificial colours or flavours, this may be the reason why so many parents buy it and give it to their kids as well as eat it themselves, it has a great taste lots of energy and has a smooth, soft texture making it easy to eat and digest. it is also a great ingredient to add to a brownie recipe or a desert, it can be used in so many different ways!

Why did I choose
I chose Nutella for this cultural assignment because I use Nutella on regular basis on my toast, on my sandwiches and even just by itself. It's chocolate like taste made it more popular than vegimite for me, So I wanted to know a bit more about it and I thought that this assignment was great opportunity to know the history and background of something that I eat all the time. I didn't know that Nutella was italian before I did this assignment so when I found out I was really surprised and even more suprised when I found that the company Ferrero that made Nutella also created the beautiful Ferrero Rocher chocolate. I now know so much more about Pietro and his family, His Company Ferrero and his wonderful creation, Nutella.
Pietro Ferrero was and still is the creator of Nutella as well as many other chocolates and confectioneries such as Ferrero Rocher, Tic Tac's and Kinder Surprise.
Pietro Ferrero was born on the 22nd of september in 1898, He died on the 22nd of March in 1949 aged only 51 due to a heart attack. Pietro was born, raised and lived in the region of Piedmont (North west of Italy, next to France). Pietro owned a popular bakery in Alba, this is where he created Supercreama Gianduja which was later called Nutella. Pietro's region was already very well known for its production of hazelnuts.
Pietro had one child, a son named Michele Ferrero. Michele inherited the Ferrero company/Business after the death of his father, Pietro Ferrero in 1949. It was Michele who changed the name from Supercrema Gianduja to Nutella later after he inherited the company. Michele also had a son, he named him Pietro Ferrero jr. in honour to his father Pietro Ferrero (snr).
Pietro's (snr) grandson (Pietro Ferrero jr.) died on the 18th of April 2011 at the age of 48 due to a cycling accident.
