A few days ago, Google confirmed that the final name for Android N would be revealed shortly. The company isn’t accepting suggestions from the public anymore – at Google I/O in May, Google opened up a portal where Android fans were able to enter their own proposals for Android N. Meanwhile, one Google exec might be trolling us with hints that Android N might be called Android Nutella. And he’s probably just trolling.

Google’s senior vice president for Android, Chrome OS, and Google OS Hiroshi Lockheimer posted the following message on Twitter, complete with a teaser image.

You can see the various things he’s “just testing,” including a hat tip to the recently unveiled OnePlus 3, the Google Play store, and Microsoft’s Office suite. In the background, you can clearly see a Google search for Nutella.

Nutella is a brand that requires no introductions. You’ve probably enjoyed the cocoa spread more than once in your lifetime. And Android Nutella sounds great, perhaps even better than Android KitKat a few years ago.

There’s nothing official about Android N becoming Android Nutella, but Lockheimer surely knows what he’s doing. After all, you wouldn’t accidentally search for that at a time when Android fans are anxiously waiting to hear the dessert name of the next major Android release.
