 A Glimpse Into History Of Nutella And Banana Rolls

Before understanding the history of these rolls, it is necessary to know where Nutella came from. Nutella was invented in 1964 by Pietro Ferrero. It is a name for an Italian cream containing cocoa and hazelnuts. The delicious ‘cream’ was launched on April 20, 1964, in the Italian city of Alba. It is said that the idea of making Nutella struck Ferrero when he watched a group of factory workers eating bread, tomato and cheese. He wondered if he could make anything that would taste sweet and could be eaten as a dessert with the leftover bread.

After World War II, Ferrero shifted from Turin to Alba and stayed there to invent the most loved Nutella. Today, the same ingredients used by Pietro are used in making the dish. In 2014, Nutella celebrated its 50th Anniversary. To celebrate the event, the Italian Postal Service, the national postal service of Italy, released a stamp in honour of the dish. Interesting, isn’t it?

Gradually, people started making rolls in France with Nutella stuffed in them. Someone, it is unclear who added Banana to the dish to give it a healthy and sweeter turn. The dish has stuck with us since then.
