What: Nutella Cafe launch
Where: 22 Fort York Blvd
When: November 13, 2015
Why: Launch of the 1st Nutella Cafe in Canada
I got up at the crack of dawn this morning to mosey my way downtown to visit the Sobeys at Spadina Ave and Fort York Blvd. I had to be there at 7:30am. I got there a bit late and missed the ribbon cutting ceremony but those pastries were calling my name so I made sure I got there in time to try them.
Sobeys launched their 1st Nutella® Cafe in Canada at this location today and were out in full force with a crack team of red jacket decked out staff to give out samples of pastries.
Inside the Sobeys people milled about and we watched as a couple of ladies swirled crepe batter on an authentic crepe maker and then filled them with Nutella® spread and fresh fruits.
My morning breakfast consisted of a Nutella® crepe and I also had an arogosta. They were so delicious. Besides the pastries they also have coffee of course and you can get a cappuccino for $2, a lot less expensive than your usual cafe's.
Also available are artisan breads made with Nutella®, including bombe, aragosta, zeppole, pizelle and all butter croissants and danishes.
Today, November 13th they are sampling all day until 7pm so if you read this today then head over there quickly to try some.
They are delicious classic Italian and French pastries and some are things you don't see in one place so it's a great place to visit before you head over to a dinner party.
If you do don't forget to take a selfie with your purchase and tag is #NutellaxSobeys so that they Sobeys people can see you enjoying your treats.
Nutella® was created in 1964 thanks to Mr. Michele Ferrero; it was based on the recipe for Glandujot developed in 1946 by his father, Pietro Ferrero- confectioner and founder of Ferrero -- in Italy's Piedmont area. Nowadays, the popular hazelnut spread is available in around 160 countries worldwide. In 2014, Nutella® celebrated its 50th anniversary. It has been sold in Canada since 1968 - 47 years.
