People Go Nuts for Nutella – level 1

07-02-18 15:00

A supermarket chain drops the price of a popular food. The food is called Nutella. It is a chocolate spread.

Nutella gets 70% cheaper. A jar of it goes from 4.50 Euros to 1.41 Euros. This makes some French people nuts. They fight in the stores. Police have to come stop them.

Difficult words: chain (many small businesses of the same name and business), make nuts (make crazy for), store (a shop).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
