Blended, Drizzled and Layered. Canadians have fallen in love with the cocoa-hazelnut perfection of Nutella hazelnut spread, and now discerning coffee and food-lovers can indulge their taste buds with a new lineup of baked goods and beverage made with Nutella — available only at Coffee Culture Café & Eatery.
Launched last weekend and available until the end of August, the delectable offerings — Blended, Drizzled and Layered with Nutella, and all prepared fresh and in-house — are receiving an unprecedentedly response from guests at Coffee Culture’s locations in Ontario, Manitoba and the United States.
“We knew that people simply go crazy for Nutella, and we were confident that our unique selection of products made with Nutella were the most delicious available anywhere,” said Perry Ouzounis, Vice President of Operations, Coffee Culture Café and Eatery, a division of Mississauga, Ont.-based Obsidian Group Inc.
“But we have literally been blown away by how popular the new menu has been. Frankly, the challenge now is keeping up with demand.”
The four menu items, launched on May 1 in Ontario and available only until August 31, are the result of a unique collaboration between Coffee Culture, which has more than 70 locations in Ontario, Manitoba and the Northeastern U.S., and Ferrero’s Nutella hazelnut spread, one of the world’s most popular and delicious spreads. Coffee Culture’s culinary and marketing team worked for six months to develop products that would meet their strict standards for taste and freshness.
