World Nutella Day day is Saturday and it was started by a blogger.

Saturday, February 5th is World Nutella Day, but the brand isn’t the one who started this well-loved day. According to Nutella’s press release, World Nutella Day was started by an American blogger named Sara Rosso. In a 2013 Huffpost article, Rosso, a super-fan of the hazelnut spread, stated that she was initially served with a cease and desist letter from Nutella to stop publishing and using their name. At the time she was living in Italy and had garnered an impressive following on her Facebook page based on her love of the iconic spread. The company later ended up dropping its cease and desist, and as a result, this also appeared to save World Nutella Day. This year, to celebrate this global event, Nutella is collaborating with actress Clair Holt and pancake artists Dancakes who will show fans how they enjoy and use Nutella to create special moments and meals around this well-loved spread.
