As we mentioned earlier today, nutella promises to be a big theme this year with at least two vendors prominently featuring everyone's favourite hazelnut spread. Along with the aforementioned nutella spring rolls and fries, expect nutella ravioli, deep fried nutella banana, nutella-strawberry grilled cheese and nutella wontons.
The food group Ferrero has announced that its flagship product Nutella is now using 100% segregated palm oil certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) in the French market. This decision affects its production units in France, but also one in Italy and another in Germany, supplying other European markets. Ferrero also confirmed that it will source exclusively RSPO-certified palm oil globally starting from 2014, bringing its initial target forward by one year.
Carvel Unleashes Nutella Soft Serve and Ice Cream
For anyone who loves drizzling that melted Nutella spread onto their ice cream,
the world just got a little easier. Carvel, the ice cream chain, is launching a line of
Nutella-flavored ice cream this summer. After all, summer is the only time ice cream
is crucial to a healthy diet.
The flavors include a hand-scooped chocolate ice cream that’s layered with Nutella
hazelnut spread and “Carvel Crunchies” and topped with more Nutella, a soft-serve
ice cream made with Nutella spread, the Sundae Dasher with Banana (Nutella soft-serve
and bananas topped with whipped cream and more Nutella) and the Sundae Dasher
with Chocolate Crunchies (Nutella soft-serve with banana and Carvel Crunchies).
The Nutella ice cream will only be available for a limited time, however, beginning
June 30 through Sept. 30 at participating Carvel locations. Three months should be
plenty of time, right?
