France is Literally Going Nuts for Nutella!

Nutella jar

They say that sugar is addictive right?

Well in France people are genuinely going crazy over reduced price jars of Nutella.

I can't believe I'm actually writing about 'French Nutella Riots!'

In scenes reminiscent of American Black Friday sales, people have been fighting each other to get hold of cheap jars of the popular chocolate nut spread.

Research has shown that excessive sugar can have a detrimental effect on your brain as well as creating addiction but fighting in the aisles of a supermarket may be pushing things a little too far!

This story really does sound like something from a dystopian movie, but I'm afraid it's all really true!

After the Intermarché chain of supermarkets decided to offer a large discount on jars of Nutella, reducing them 950g from their normal price of €4.50 down to €1.41, there were queues outside stores and fighting broke out.

According to the Guardian a member of staff was punched in the eye in one store, women had their hair pulled and another had their hand cut!

Quite literally nuts!

A limit of three pots per customer had to be introduced as shelves were cleared in as little as 15 minutes.
