That G-d exists. 

Someone told me that somewhere in Philly, there is an ELEVEN POUND JAR of Nutella available.  I’ll be back as soon as the sugar coma wears off.




How long do you think one has to exercise to work off eleven pounds of Nutella?  Let’s see…

Yep.  Roughly 27,000 calories.

Maybe I should just RUN to Philly and back.

    It’s not an eleven pound jar… but you should enter this: http://www.nutellausa.com/giveaway.htm

    If you win, I want one jar.

    Ok, that’s just disgusting. Yep, run to Philly and back… 🙂

    maybe not run, but a jog wouldn’t hurt

  4. Beach Bum: Apparently, it’s 141 miles each way. Multiply that times two, and then times 100 calories per mile, and I’ve got 28,200 calories. I’d actually LOSE weight. Bonus! 😀

    joebec: I suspect I’d wind up walking a goodly portion. And getting hit by a truck while trying (stupidly) to cross the interstate or some such nonsense. But the above calculation tells me how many treadmill miles I’d need to log! 🙂

  5. “I paid for a colossal Nutella, and I’m gonna get a colossal Nutella!”

  6. Just because you can get an eleven pound jar of nutella, doesn’t mean you should. It’s like saying that you can get m-80s in North Carolina, so why not drive down there and get them. Of course, a peanut butter, banana, and nutella sammich is way better than an m-80 sammich, but still…

  7. Homer: Mmmmmmm…. nnuuuuteeellllaaaahhhh…. 😀

    HIN: See, I think I’d use the nutella as peanut butter, and have it with raspberry jam. Peanut butter on top of the hazelnut flavor? I dunno.

    You can also get Everclear in North Carolina. And I almost definitely shouldn’t. 😉

    Don’t do it, and not because of the calories, because you could slap ALL of them on your bod and still be skinny and hot. I was in Germany for Christmas before Y2K and my German boyfriend got, as a present, a 2,000 gram jar of Nutella. We ate Nutella like nobody’s business but it still didn’t keep all that well. Much better to have a ton of small jars – a big jar gets all dried out around the edges.

    HAHA I just saw this post.

    And, in addition to the $89.99 price tag, there was a taunting note attached that said something like, “You know you want to buy me …”
