I can't believe I missed World Nutella Day on 5th February! This post stems from a conversation with Nick Jones who informed our table last night that today was National Almond Day. Since I could not find any (serious) art that deals with almonds (aside from the artist Darren Almond), here is Thomas Rentmeister's Nutella, 2000:

Rentmeister uses sugar, chocolate, and baby lotion in his art, but since 1999, his material of choice has been Nutella. Here he poured 1000 large buckets of it directly on the floor. As repulsive as it looks, it must smell very sweet.
