"It makes me very happy. I love free food," said Malta, whose favors Nutella on bananas.
Long-time Nutella lover Fawn Heyer fawned over the spread with her friend Stephanie Duca, who was indulging in her first experience.
The free snack snagged Duca's approval.
"I had never tried Nutella… It's like chocolate and peanut butter which is the best combination you can ever have," she said. When asked if she'll be back for more freebies in coming days, Duca said, "Oh hell yeah, I'll visit all week. I'll track it down at every stop. They can spread the love all over me."
