People Go Nuts for Nutella – level 2

07-02-18 15:00

A supermarket chain dropped the price of Nutella by 70%. A 950-gramme jar’s price dropped from 4.50 Euros to 1.41 Euros.

Nutella is a popular chocolate spread and the drop in price made some French people nuts. Police had to come break up fights over the product in supermarkets.

The maker of Nutella said that it was the supermarket chain that decided to drop the price.

Difficult words: chain (many small businesses of the same name and business), make nuts (make crazy for), decide (think about and make or do something).
