Nutella has a monopoly on itself. There are ma-and-pa hazelnut spreads, to be sure, but just “Nutella,” the brand name in itself, is more powerful than Coke. Bigger than Nike. Bigger than Kanyesus. At least, in my world.
When I’m kicking off my R&R Mayka Time, I swirl a teaspoon in my Costco-sized Nutella jar and sit down on the couch. At least, that’s what I’ve been doing since we got back from Italy. Because, in Italy, they have something the U.S. doesn’t have. (Okay, many things.) In Italy, they have Nutella & Go!
How perfect is this snack?
I suppose that, seeing as how “perfect” has a technically very absolute definition, Nutella & Go! can be nothing less than perfect. Look at this:
Cracker sticks, Nutella spread, and Esta The lemon iced tea, all in one handy little container. Ergonomic, too! Okay, not really, but being that it’s less than the size of two fists, it is easily handheld.
I’ve heard that avocados are a nearly perfect food, that if you’re stranded on an island, you could subsist quite well on avocados. I beg to differ. If I was stranded on an island, I’d insist on subsisting quite well on Nutella & Go!
Also, it has an exclamation point at the end of its name, much like my only science class in college, “Hands-On Physics!”
Lo, you can order Nutella and Go! (sans Esta The) on Amazon, but you also have to pony up for import tax and shipping. Sigh.
This snack I enjoyed while sitting underneath a replica of the David and photobombing tourists’ camera opps.
