Michele Ferrero R.I.P.

nutellaMichele Ferrero ist gestern im Alter von 89 Jahren gestorben. Der Mann hatte aus dem Haselnuss-Zeugs seines Großvaters unser geliebtes Nutella gemacht und wurde damit der reichste Candy-Produzent der Welt. R.I.P. Michelle und danke für die ganze Schoki!

Mr Ferrero's father, a pastry maker named Pietro, developed the forerunner to Nutella in 1946, called Giandujot, combining a small amount of cocoa and lots of hazelnuts to make an affordable luxury at a time chocolate was expensive. […] Michele Ferrero turned the paste into the Nutella now known the world over, produced in 11 factories and sold in 160 countries. The first pot was made in 1964.
