Australia loves Nutella, that’s for sure – so much, in fact, that Australians experienced a shortage this summer.[related] Although there were plenty of normal household-size jars of Nutella available in supermarkets, the 3 kg containers sold to restaurants, bakeries, and coffee shops weren’t available for at least ten days. Ferrero, the company that makes Nutella, told Mashable Australia that “the current demand was difficult to forecast.” Much of that could be due to Melbourne’s booming market for Nutella-filled milkshakes, croissants, gelato, doughnuts, waffles, and more.
If anyone’s using Nutella right, it’s this city, where cafés and dessert shops offer unique creations straight out of a Nutella lover’s dream. If you’re craving a decadent dessert and not quite ready to buy a plane ticket, try our coconut-Nutella pudding cake or Nutella lasagna.
