True story, my own introduction to Nutella was something like this, only far away from any European hotel. One of my Mom's best friends, while travelling back from Congo had brought a bag full of chocolates and sweet delicacies for the family as a gift. In that, was a bottle of Nutella.
It was the year 2008, I was studying engineering and was back home for the weekend. So, while packing to go back to my hostel, I kind of stole that Nutella bottle and took it back with me.
And without even knowing it, I had opened the pandora's box for myself and all my friends. I remember the four of us sitting in my hostel room and polishing the whole bottle off, spoon after spoon, and wondering what on earth made it so delicious.
We were addicted. But for all our desire to buy and have it again, we couldn't find the damn thing anywhere near our college in Pune. And that's exactly what happened to the tourists all over the world, especially the US.
