A half year ago I got an Instagram like from Festella, also know as the Nutella Festival. Oh my, a Nutella themed festival! A rush came by with the speed of light and I impulsively ordered tickets for me and A. for this food festival event! Because a Nutella themed food festival, that's just a great place and excuse for your cheatday, am I right?
Yesterday was that cheatday. I wish the sunny weather of today exchanged with the weather of yesterday but luckily it didn't rain. Please check out my whole festival happening below!
NLEen half jaar geleden kreeg ik op Instagram een like van Festella, ook wel Nutella Festival genoemd. Goeie genade een Nutella thema festival! Ik moet en zal hier bij zijn en heb gelijk spontaan tickets voor mij en A. besteld. Want een Nutella festival is gewoon een perfecte plek voor je cheatday, nietwaar?!
Gisteren vond die cheatday plaats. Als het kon, dan ruilde ik het zonnige weer van vandaag met die van gisteren. Gelukkig regende het niet! Scroll naar beneden toe voor het hele festival gebeuren!
In order to buy food, you have to buy the special `Festella` coins. Me and A. bought 12 coins (€33,- and a €10,- locker which we get €5,- from back deposit). Festivals are tend to be quite pricy overall and Festalla proofs it.
What to bring with

The first thing we got is this bad boy Nutella cupcake with Nutella on top and bits of nuts. A pretty yummy starter! Lets continue for more!
Our next food is something savory and that can taste awkward in the mouth when you just had a sweet cupcake. Luckily the waiting in the line washed down the sweet taste in our mouth! There was even a Nutella chips option too which I imagined it would taste weird so I stick with my regular, not out of the box choice: paprika and salt.
And it was yum!
At Grizzl I have ordered a vegetarian hamburger and it cost me 3 coins. The hamburger tasted really really good! My friend A. agrees too! Grizzl not only has food trucks but a shop too in Amsterdam.
A. got a tuna pizza which was yum but nothing really outstanding overall.
Here we shared `poffertjes` together which are typical Dutch mini pancakes and which I very very recommend ANYONE who comes to Holland to eat them. These poffertjes were honestly perfect: fresh, still hot and topped with fresh strawberries, yum.
Our last food was: Nutella churros where we stood a good 30 min in the line only to find out we were standing in the wrong line (the line for crêpes)! Grrr! It wasn`t really our fault because the stands were overflowing with people and there wasn`t a clear sign/banner of the selling food either. Eventually we got our churros (2½ coins). The churros were only just ok-nice because the churros were not freshly deep fried and the waiting didn`t really do the food good either.
Would I go back?!
Probably not. It`s been a fun first-timer but I`m not sure if I want to relive the Nutella thing again. I find it overpriced and the event was pretty small too. After all it was a first timer for me and for Festella so hopefully Festella have been writing notes for the better next time. Maybe if they make it into an Oreo festival
Pssst, all the pictures were shot with OLYMPUS OMD E-M5 II camera.
