Something about Nutella makes even the most mild mannered horf it down in an animalistic frenzy. And while Pacific Northwest-based Burgerville isn't using any actual Nutella here, the spirit of the transcendent spread is alive and well in the chain's delicious seasonal Chocolate Hazelnut Milkshake.
