If you haven't eaten at Crepes 'n Crepes yet, you are missing out. The possibilities are endless when it comes to filling and topping your crepe, with possible ingredients ranging from spinach and feta to sweet cream cheese. But in honor of World Nutella Day, Nutella is an absolute must. Complement your Nutella-drizzled crepe with strawberries, bananas or ice cream, but no matter what concoction you come up with, Nutella will steal the show. Bon appétit!

4) Tee & Cakes
This Boulder-based bakery is living the sweet life, baking everything from cupcakes to donuts to wedding cakes on a rotating menu. Tee & Cakes is located on the Pearl Street Mall, so head over there today, drool over the bakery case and then order the Nutella cupcake. The fluffy white cake is topped with rich, Nutella chocolate butter- cream frosting and finished with chocolate sprinkles.

There is an unwritten rule that you cannot have a burger and fries without pairing your meal with a shake. At H Burger, milkshakes are chilled with liquid nitrogen, taking them a whole new level of creaminess. And deliciousness, if you're ordering the Nutella marshmallow version -- a decadent, chocolate-hazelnut shake topped with tiny toasted marshmallows.

Eating Peanut Butter instead because Nutella is high calorie, high glycemic, MSG-laced disgusting grossness!

I will gladly support local restaurants by ordering their Nutella desserts, but the only one I really need is that first picture  - a solo spoonful.

@Patrick Esser Everything's bad for you if you eat enough of it. Enjoy a little Nutella, or if you are too afraid of it, make your own chocolate-hazelnut spread at home. Chocolate, hazelnuts, food processor, whirr, bam.

By the way, many people feel that peanuts are bad for you because of lectins and phytic acid  and because they are a source of unnecessary carbohydrates and produce a big glycemic response. Aflatoxin in peanuts also seems to be a growing concern. Most of the peanut butter people eat is loaded with sugar, preservatives, and partially-hydrogenated fats.

Peanut butter is high in fat and calories, and the FDA has determined that MSG is safe.
