For lovers of Nutella, hearing that a free truckload of it is on its way to the Valley is like finding out your five favorite movie stars are coming over your house for dinner. Ho-boy, Michael Shannon!
As part of its nationwide Nutella Breakfast Tour, and despite a lawsuit settled earlier this year that found the unique hazelnut spread was, in fact, not a "health food" (See: DUH), the truck will be stopping in four locations in the Valley starting this Saturday handing out free samples and other Nutella-inspired swag.
Here's the schedule for the Nutella Breakfast Tour Truck:
- Saturday, November 24, at CityScape in Downtown Phoenix, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
- Sunday, November 25, at East Van Buren and North 3rd Streets in Downtown Phoenix, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
- Monday, November 26, near the ASU campus (exact location TBD), from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
- Tuesday, November 27, at Tempe Marketplace, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Along with the free samples and swag, Nutella's also kicking off its City Challenge where fans can win their city a chance at 5,000, 13-ounce free jars of Nutella delivered via the Breakfast Tour Truck. To enter, tell 'em your favorite way to wake up with Nutella (NOTE: naked) via Twitter and add #Nutella (insert your city name). The city with the most eligible Tweets wins.
