From National Lost Sock Memorial Day to Toothache Day, there are some pretty pointless ‘Days’ out there, most of which are probably made up by some marketing genius. Tomorrow (Wednesday 5th February) is World Nutella Day – finally a day we can get on board with. Whoever came up with that one, we salute you.

In honour of the poignant day, we’ve searched high and low to bring you London’s best dishes featuring the chocolatey, hazelnutty spread. Prepare to go nuts…

Pizza Pilgrims

The Nutella Pizza Ring

Those nutty for the hazelnut spread need to make the pilgrimage to this pizza joint for the Nutella Pizza Ring.

Pizza Pilgrims use their signature Neapolitan dough and fill it to the brim with Nutella and salted ricotta, bake it in the oven until it’s oozing with chocolatey goodness and top it off with a creamy ball of ice cream.

Jefferson's

Nutella Topped Ice Cream

For sweet treats that probably come with a three-day calorie intake (who cares?) head to Jefferson’s, where you’ll find some of the best homemade ice cream in the capital.

We recommend going for either pancakes, waffles or crepes for your base and adding a topping of ice cream, Nutella, chocolate sand and whipped cream. Ooph!

The Little Yellow Door

The Espresso Nutellini

To honour World Nutella Day, Notting Hill’s Little Yellow Door have created the perfect marriage of hazelnutty goodness, rocket fuel coffee and heady booze. The Espresso Nutellini is mixed up by their bartenders using Espresso, Finlandia, Kahlua, Mozart Black and Frangelico, and garnished with a chocolate wafer roll.

The best bit? It’s served in a mini Nutella Jar. Cute.

Available Wednesday 5th February to Saturday 8th February

Bubblewrap Waffle

Instagram's Favourite Waffles

One Google of Chinatown’s Bubblewrap Waffles and you’d think it were illegal to eat one without taking an Instagram pic first. But the insanely photogenic sweet treats are not all style over substance, they taste pretty damn good too and come with a wealth of fillings and toppings. Go for the Nutella, naturally.

Tandoor Chop House

Nutella Naan

We’ve had Nutella pizzas, waffles and doughnuts but have you ever tried the Nutella Naan? The pillowy, airiness of the naan works perfectly with the indulgent sweet sauce and is served with coconut and ice cream. Trust us, it’s delicious.

Christopher's

The Nutella Martini

Christopher’s in Covent Garden are making Nutella chic(ish) with their Nutella Martini. Their dedicated martini bar have a huge selection of the tipples no matter your taste.
