Nutella Man

"About 3 months ago, Elder Pieper and I were walking in our grocery store in Cruzeiro and they had a 6 foot stand up of a dude holding a jar of Nutella. I said "Hey, Elder P, that would be sweet in the Cruzeiro house!" He, of course, agreed and we asked the manager about having it. He said we could when they were done with the promotion. Well, about 3 weeks later, I got transferred to Bom Clima, completely forgetting about Nutella Man. Yesterday, the 13 of September, Elder Pieper officially left Cruzeiro to come to the office and eventually go back to the United States - Kentucky to be exact. Well, Elder Pieper, being the worlds coolest dude/rememberer of Nutella Man did the coolest thing ever. He ended up bringing Nutella Man to Sao Paulo all the way from Cruzeiro (a 6 hour bus trip) to give to me as a present. Nutella Man, with Pass Along Card and Joseph Smith pamphlet in hand, now stands in the living room of the Guarulhos house, eager to greet the missionaries after a long day of preaching the Gospel."

Nutella®, in its original form, was first created in the 1940s by Mr. Pietro Ferrero, a pastry maker and founder of the Ferrero company. At the time, cocoa was in short supply because of rationing due to World War II, so chocolate was very limited. So Mr. Ferrero used hazelnuts, which are plentiful in the Piedmont region of Italy (northwest), to extend the chocolate supply.

Nutella is marketed in over 75 countries across the globe, and outsells all brands of peanut butter combined worldwide! Ferrero sells enough jars of Nutella® worldwide that the total number of jars sold annually stacked up would be over 500,000 times taller than the Statue of Liberty.
