There are some words that mean way more to us than we ever would have imagined. For many, the yummy goodness of the hazelnut chocolate spread called Nutella sends us into a food dance of utter happiness. But before you say the word one more time out of the sheer happiness the sweet treat gives you, you've got to find out whether you've even been saying it right. Many have been pronouncing it 'nuh-tell-uh,' however, according to the brand's website, that's actually not right! The correct pronunciation is 'new-tell-uh." Don't sweat it if you've been saying it wrong, however, because the Italian manufacturer Ferrero, who makes this much-loved spread, said they're not trying to promote a specific articulation on it. So, if you've been saying it wrong, I suppose you can continue to do so with the blessing from the team themselves. But how is this just coming to light? The question arose on the website's Frequently Asked Questions section under "What is Nutella hazelnut spread?" to which the company replied, "Nutella (pronounced 'new-tell-uh') is a tasty, unique spread made from the combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa. Nutella has no artificial colours or preservatives." Many were mind boggled over the revelation, taking to Twitter to share their surprise.
