Yes, but the news made Nutella headlines. I've spoken to folks at work and many have never heard of Nutella and now they're going to try it out.

I remember last year Nutella made news because the frigid temps in Europe caused a price spike in hazelnut which is an ingredient used to make nutella.

in our vocabularies the pronunciation is written as [nu-tèl-la], with the phonetic alphabet [nuˈtɛlla]
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_Italian )

Spoiler

If you want to hear the Italian pronunciation

this is a really short ad about Nutella. They say it at 00:05 and 00:14

I think we recently had a shortage of Nutella because we became obsessed with making Nutella donuts. It made the news lol.

That announcer speaks so quickly, I really couldn't pick up his pronunciation of "Nutella", even knowing when he would be saying it.


But anyway, isn't the accent on the second syllable, with the "e" pronounced as an English long "a", and emphasis on the double-"l"?

It's made by a Belgian company and NEW-tella is the correct pronunciation.

Is this information from the Wikipedia entry incorrect? Also, doesn't the pronunciation shown in Urania93's post have the accent on the second syllable?


Production[edit]

Nutella is produced in various facilities. In the North American market, it is produced at a plant in Brantford, Ontario in Canada [SIZE=2][13][/SIZE] and most recently in San José Iturbide, Guanajuato, Mexico.[SIZE=2][14][/SIZE]
For Australia and New Zealand, Nutella has been manufactured in Lithgow, New South Wales since the late 1970s.[SIZE=2][15][/SIZE]
Two of the four Ferrero plants in Italy produce Nutella, in Alba, Piedmont, and in Sant'Angelo dei Lombardi in Campania.[SIZE=2][16][/SIZE] In France, a production facility is located in Villers-Écalles.[SIZE=2][17][/SIZE] For Eastern Europe (including Southeast Europe, Poland, Turkey, Czech Republic and Slovakia) and South Africa it is produced in Warsaw and Manisa. For Germany and northern Europe Nutella is produced at the Ferrero plant in Stadtallendorf, which has been in existence since 1956.[SIZE=2][18][/SIZE]
Ferrero also has a plant in Brazil, which supplies the Brazilian market, with part of the production being exported overseas.[SIZE=2][[/SIZE]

LOL, I am always surprised at how City-Data threads can turn such trivial topics into semantic debates. And yet, I become a part of it and participate!

Nutella is Italian in origin, at least that specific brand of cocoa-hazelnut spread is Italian. It's made by the Ferrero company (like the chocolate hazelnut candy in every grocery store: Ferrero Rocher). I'm sure, like a gajillion other products, it's manufactured all over the planet.

If you want to pronounce it like an Italian, you'll say: noo-TAY-la
In America, pretty similar: noo-TEL-la

Now allow me to be a total party pooper and rain on Nutella's parade (fyi, I still eat it. All things in moderation, as they say...):

And now I'll bring the sunshine back:
