    According to the English Wikipedia, it's /nutɛlə/, the u as in "book". They only list one way to pronounce it in English, so I suppose there are no differences between dialects (i.e., American vs. British).

      It perhaps makes more sense considering it's made of nuts.

    I'm another nobody who pronounces it noo-tella. If it's supposed to be nut-ella it should be spelled nuttella.

    The way that the maker, Ferrero, says to pronounce it.

    New-tell-uh

    I say it as pneutella (new tella), if that is what you are asking. not nut ella. Well, not exactly "new" tella, but pretty close. that same u sound without the accent on the syllable (tell is the accented syllable).

    I guess I just violated Bluebells "surely". I do have to admit that I won't eat the stuff. I don't mind hazelnuts in my christmas mixed nuts (they are a good offset to almonds and walnuts), but they aren't my favorites and I sure as heck don't want a spread of homogenized crushed hazelnut, TYVM. And I would be a true Yankee, from the northeast US.

      Right. Not all Americans are Yankees, but all Yankees are Americans.

    Surely nobody says 'New - tella'.
