"I mean, who can resist a sweet story involving hazelnut spread?" asked Columbia's chief digital officer Sree Sreenivasan, a noted Nutella nut and social media maven. "I've already retweeted this thing in several time zones myself since I assumed it to be true just based on the Nutella consumption in my house." (Editor's note: Sree didn't say any of this... but he easily could have.)
