Nutella is the brand name of a hazelnut-based sweet spread created by the Italian company Ferrero in the 1940s. At the time, chocolate was very limited due to World War II. Nutella is now marketed in over 75 countries across the globe.
Chocolate spread is a chocolate-flavoured paste which is eaten mostly spread on breads and toasts or similar pastries such as muffins and pitas. At times it also serves as a filling in pastries and cakes.
Although it tastes, smells, and looks like chocolate it does not solidify. The paste usually contains cocoa and oil, and is also likely to contain milk and additional taste and smell components. At times it also includes nuts or honey. Chocolate spread is normally sold in glass jars or plastic tubs.
