The Right Way To Pronounce Nutella Begins With 'New'

There are nuts in it, but not in its name.

It's the sweet spread both parents and kids love: Nutella. But, according to the brand itself, you've been pronouncing it all wrong.

Ferrero, the parent company of Nutella, has confirmed via their FAQ page that the chocolate hazelnut spread is pronounced "new-tell-uh" and not "nut-elle-ah" or "nuh-tell-uh," which are commonly used worldwide.

According to the Daily Mail, the company simply suggests the pronunciation, but does not enforce it universally.

Whether you eat it with a spoon, spread it on bread or bake with it, Nutella should be kept at room temperature to maintain its smooth taste and flavour. Nutella is considered one of the most popular spreads in the world, with enough jars being sold annually to cover the Great Wall of China eight times.
