Nutella Party in a Box

Today is Nutella Day.

Didn't know that, did ya?

I didn't either, until Carrie from The Rowdy Stroudy's sent me this IN THE MAIL.

It's a party in a box, I tell you...complete with my own I don't have to share...

Carrie is the BEST at finding a reason to celebrate in every day things!

Like eating gourmet cheese while watching TV...getting her friends to Pucker Up for lemons...and, of course, throwing a chocolate party!

You really should go check out her parties...February needs more parties!

Thank you, Carrie, for thinking of me, and going out of your way to make me feel special and loved!  You are one of a kind! :)

I'll be sure to steal away for a sweet treat sometime where did I hide those pretzels....Hey, what do you like to dip in your Nutella, anyway???

  1. Awesome! I bought Nutella last week for the first time and nobody had tried it yet. I guess today is the day! :) Happy Nutella day to you!

  2. I mean nobody "has" tried it...

  3. Yumm! You lucky girl! Now go hide in a closet and enjoy =]

  4. I love Nutella- I first fell in love with the stuff on my mission and then I discovered they had it in the US as well.

  5. I had Nutella for breakfast this morning and was sure to tell my children it was National Nutella Day. I'm determined to introduce it's goodness to at least one Nutella virgin today.

    I got a box from Carrie too. Oh, how I love that girl.

  6. I haven't tried it, so I guess I am going to have to. What do you put it on??

  7. I just eat it with a spoon :) Or put on toast.

  8. You are too kind and I am so happy that you are enjoying this sweet treat! It was so fun to send.

    To be honest, I have never dipped anything in Nutella. But I am going to go buy some pretzels now!

    My favorite recipe with Nutella? Banana-Nutella Won-tons. I can't even begin to describe their glory.

  9. yum! That is how I eat mine...with a spoon. of course we like it on dessert quesadillas too! now to go get my jar out too!

  10. I wish I had known that sooner!!! Because I LOVE nutella and could totally use some today!!!

  11. I totally agree: February needs more parties! :)
    What a great surprise from a friend.

  12. Oh awesome. We so love Nutella! I had some foreign exchange students that introduced me to this stuff. We love it and it will substitute really well for peanut butter in most recipes. Who doesn't like chocolate???

  13. I must be the only person I know who doesn't like Nutella.

    (Amazing. There is actually a high-calorie food I don't like.)


  14. How on earth did I miss this holiday? I think we need a late celebration at our house!

  15. How awesome! And sorry I'm a bit late to claim my winnings... I'm pretty much glued to the computer M-Thurs, but Fridays are wild cards and I spend weekends experiencing the real world ;)

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  16. i am seriously marking this day on my calendar for next year! easy to remember-the day before my husband's bday!

    fun get together on Nutella Day!

    hwever, i am still doing it...besides it's FEBRUARY, month of love and chocolates!
