Launched in early November, Ferrero’s new Nutella-filled treats have taken Italy by storm.

With these words, Ferrero, Italy's biggest chocolate manufacturer and maker of other delicious confectionery products, pays homage, on its web site, to Michele Ferrero, often described as a real-life Italian Willy Wonka.
