I'm Nutella You Something! {A Giveaway}


{Summer 2012}

"What is it again?"
"Nutella. It's a hazelnut spread with chocolate. You want to try some?"
"Uhh...sure."

And in that moment, I knew I had tasted a little bit of heaven. {Figuratively, that is.}

I was in love.

Fast forward from the Summer to December 9th, 2012. My small group is playing Dirty Santa and it's my friend's turn. She eyes the Starbucks gift card in my possession and motions for me to hand the card over to her. I reluctantly trade my newly acquired Starbucks card for 53 oz. of Nutella. Yes, you heard me correctly. 53 ounces.


That's 3 POUNDS of Nutella. 

I literally had no idea what to do with this much Nutella.

"I could feed a starving village in Guatemala/Africa/Thailand with this amount of chocolate-y goodness."

"I could make the most divine, heavenly fudge on the face of this earth."

"I could sit in my closet and eat it all one night and in the morning wake up with a sugar hangover."

What on earth was I to do?

Then, on Monday, I realized I could give it one of y'all. I had been wanting to have a giveaway since November and what better thing to giveaway then a great, big jar of Nutella?

So, dear blog readers, here is my gift to you this Christmas season. One big jar of Nutella and a $15 Starbucks gift card. {I decided to throw in a little something extra. It is Christmas after all. You're welcome! ;) }

Becca said...

NUUUUUTTTTTEEEEEEELLLLLLLLAAAAAAAA!!!!!!! Ohmaigosh this post totally made my day. Of all the things to give away, THIS IS THE BEST. Why yes, I have, indeed, had nutella. My first experience with the fantastic jar of delectable tastiness is as follows: I remember it well. I was 17 years old and my friend bought me an entire jar. Not half of a jar. Not three-fourths of a jar. A. Whole. Jar. (Yes, that was necessary) I finished it in one day...using only my fingers and my face. That happened. I was there. Yeah. eccajoyfan@gmail.com :)

Becca said...

Also, why on earth are you giving away Nutella and not noming it? WHY ARE YOU NOT NOMING IT, GIANN???? Not that there's anything wrong with giving things away....especially Nutella. But yeah. This post is amazing and I totally blogged about it.

FAVORITE STARBUCKS DRINK: Sadly, I haven't had the chance to do anything super exciting, however I like to go simple and stick with my dear friend Chai :)

OH NUTELLA. I would write a poem, but I'm bad at rhyming.

I'm drawing a blank on the rules, but I have tweeted.

I adore Nutella. We sometimes get the cheap alternative, but it doesn't compare to the yummy goodness of the real stuff. ;) Favorite Starbucks drink is a vanilla Iced-Coffee!!
