Spread Nutellerie

The CNE's Spread Nutellerie is becoming a store front

Everybody's been talking about the Nutella-themed snacks coming out of the food building at this year's CNE. On Spread Nutellerie's menu, you'll find treats like sweet potato fries topped with Nutella and sea salt, and jalapeno poppers with Nutella garnish. Tony Vastis is one of the brothers behind its creation, and he says the franchise is about to expand to a much wider scale than the exhibition grounds. Vastis, who also runs the Blue Donkey food truck, says the first store will likely open near the Eaton Centre, in Liberty Village or possibly the Distillery District.

Vastis says the menu at his expanded location will include fewer crazy items, like the poppers, and more traditional dessert offerings, some of which he already offers at the CNE. Nutella lovers can expect to find various toasts topped with the spread and accompanied by banana, strawberry, peanut butter, and the like—foods which are generally thought to be more congruous with hazelnut.

They'll also serve espresso and Nutella lattes and milkshakes. Vastis has thought up a wealth of recipes already. He says Nutella is easy to serve and work with because people of all ages already seem to love it. "Nutella has no age boundary," he tells me excitedly over the phone.
