The Jar of Nutella

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
― Charles M. Schulz

.

When did you first discover chocolate?

Can you remember that initial introduction to a taste sensation?

.

Did you love it,

did you hate it,

were you indifferent to it?

.

Does it have memories attached to it?

Was it a special treat,

shared only at certain times,

After Eight, perhaps.

.

Youthful Heart

.

When was that moment that you met a food which was so delicious,

you wanted to eat it and keeping eating it,

only it and nothing else?

You didn’t need anything else, you had it!

.

Honey Toast

.

Maybe chocolate isn’t your food of love.

It isn’t mine anymore…

but once upon a time,

about four decades ago,

I met my very first jar of Nutella,

and it was love at first taste.

.

How Do You Eat Yours

.

Cadbury’s Creme Eggs ask you how you eat them,

but Nutella never asked me about that,

it accepted me without questioning…

why I was dipping a metal stick with a Lego wheel on one end,

part of a Lego car set,

into its devilishly delicious delirium,

twirling the wheel around to make a Nutella lollipop,

then shoving the whole thing into my mouth,

with sounds of satisfied fulfillment.

.

It was a very messy affair

.

Wonderland

.

The next object in our Objectivity challenge,

is,

a jar of Nutella.

.

I couldn’t resist…

.

Let’s see what happens when we give in to temptation!

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
― George Bernard Shaw
