People In France Are Literally Rioting Over Discounted Nutella Prices And TBH I Don’t Blame Them

Nutella lovers will love this: a French market sold Nutella for 70% off and people in the country literally rioted over it. Why? Because everyone wants a bite of that chocolaty hazelnut goodness.

Supermarket chain Intermarché dropped their Nutella prices from $5.85 to $1.75 and people from all over the country came rushing into their stores to get a jar while they were still there. I have a feeling no one was expecting the madness that ensued.

I cannot make this shit up, guys. This is a real thing that actually happened today.

According to BBC, one customer told the media, “They are like animals. A woman had her hair pulled, an elderly lady took a box on her head, another had a bloody hand.”

Apparently, customers gutted the store of Nutella within 15 minutes and even gave one customer a black eye. And this was literally all over some chocolate hazelnut spread.

But you know what? I can’t really blame anyone. That stuff is good, and if I could stock my house with a hundred jars of it, I definitely would.

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
