For the love of chocolate: Discounted price sparks ‘Nutella riots’ in France

The chocolate hazelnut spread the world has come to love became the centre of chaos in France as police had to be called in after a 70% discount on Nutella caused ‘riots’ with shoppers rushing to supermarkets to make the most of the sale.

The discount offered by the Intermarché chain reduced the price of Nutella from €4.50 to €1.40 causing frenzy in supermarkets with scenes likened to those of riots, reported the Guardian.

Media reported that the footage from inside several shops showed chaos as shoppers swamped the supermarkets with the staff failing to control them.
