Gooey, rich and chocolate-ly, Nutella is such a beloved confectionary that millions of kilos of it is consumed across the world in a year. According to the Italian brand, you could cover the Great Wall of China eight times with the number of jars of Nutella sold worldwide in a year.
Another fun fact: The amount of Nutella produced in one year weighs the same as the Empire State Building. In fact, it even caused a “riot” in France last year when supermarkets there slashed prices on the spread.
With World Nutella Day falling on Feb 5, what better way to celebrate this godsend spread than to experience the different kinds of Nutella desserts you can find in Singapore?

This cafe is known for their signature O.T.T (over the top) milkshakes featuring decadent toppings stacked in towering jars. As O.T.T suggests, when you try their Nutella & Banana ($16), be ready to indulge. The main shake is banana-flavoured and complimented with a moist piece of Nutella cake, banana slices, wafers, and pretzels.
Needless to say, banana and chocolate go well together and the result is a mighty combination of flavours and textures — sweet, chocolatey, salty, crunchy, soft, mushy, and gooey. Yummy.
