The Nutella Alternatives Group at Flickr

Yay, the Nutella Alternatives group is growing (world dominion imminent…).

Recent additions include:

pseudo Nutella

Duo spread

The question

Why spend so many hours and bytes on Nutella and derivatives?
It’s a web differentiator! And when people wander thru the shopping aisles with their phone cams they need a purpose.

The Flickr group lists all the details:

Childhood memories

As regular readers of Chiperoni know, the author grew up under African skies. Nutella and all subsitutes thereof were unknown. A friendly soul somewhere in Germany sent a package containing a small bucket in brown plastic of Nutella-like bread spread.

At school my Nutella sandwich was commented with a universal “Yuck“. South Africans, Brits, Zimbabweans, Indians, North Americans and Malawians didn’t even try it.

More for us and some classmates from the Netherlands.

I -in turn- never really acquired a taste for Marmite.
