What?  You think I’m referring to that game with the oblong ball that Madonna’s singing at?  The event which put the phrase “wardrobe malfunction” into popular use?  That day for which 1.25 billion chicken wings* are sold? Nope!

It’s World Nutella Day 2012! (If you are one of my elite tens of followers, you know I hate exclamation points, but what is more important than that thick, silky, chocolatey spread?  For Nutella, I break open the lockbox of exclamation points I keep hidden under my desk.)

I love Nutella

*  Seriously.  This stat came directly from The National Chicken Council.  (Yeah, I know; I didn’t know they existed either.)  The jokes just write themselves, don’t they?  I’d have thought they’d have all been hiding under their desks, afraid to poke their beaks out and count wings, but I was wrong.

PS: Thanks to Mardi at eat. live. travel. write , for always remembering to alert me to this most holy of days, which somehow passes without note on my date book.   C’mon, Staples, you mention Eastern Orthodox Lent, National Boss Day and Boxing Day, which isn’t even a holiday in this country, but somehow bypass World (!) Friggin’ Nutella Day?!  Priorities!

Whew.  Those exclamation points really take a lot out of me.

and who are those people who put it on waffles? bread? whatsthematterwiththem? it’s to be poured down the open throat — OR — inhaled directly from a spoooooon, then quickly refilled and inhaled directly from the spoooooon again.

Had I known that yesterday was World Nutella Day, I would have forsaken the healthy baked chicken wontons I made in lieu of some fried golden nutella wontons. Still counts as a Superbowl snack, right? I will say the chicken wontons did come out fargin good, tho! Anything that makes the hubs eat healthy with me is a plus!

OK, this is inspiring me to give Nutella another chance–I tried it in college but wasn’t a huge fan (yup still talking about hazelnut spread)!
