So it seems the denizens of Woodbridge, Virginia, are a bunch of Twitter-savvy Nutella-philes.

The town of 54,275 people in Prince William County has emerged victorious in Nutella’s City Challenge. You’ll recall that back in October, a truck was traveling around dispensing free samples of the beloved hazelnut spread—sometimes with baguette, sometimes without. As part of that promotion, Nutella offered to give away 5,000 13-ounce jars of the stuff to the city that sent the most Tweets describing their favorite way to “wake up to Nutella.” (Least favorite way: on the bathroom floor, spoon still in mouth, empty jar bobbing in last night’s bath water.)

See where this is going? Woodbridge is that city magisterial district! And on December 23 from 10 to 2, the jars will be dispensed in the parking lot at the Potomac Mills outlet shopping mall near JC Penney. Find more details on the product Facebook page, the go get yourself some of that chocolatey deliciousness.
