What??? A Nutella shortage? Say it ain't so!

Post by John Q. Public » Tue Aug 19, 2014 10:03 am

First a Sriracha shortage, now this? This is getting serious! :shock:

"It's not time to start stockpiling little jars of chocolate but poor weather in Turkey has sent hazelnut prices surging 60 percent to their highest levels in 10 years. That's unbottled speculation that Ferrero Rocher, the largest global buyer of hazelnuts, could be under pressure, especially with pricing and availability of its signature spread, Nutella. Hazelnut crops are currently estimated at around 520,000 tons, as much as 280,000 tons below initial estimates."

I know you're probably being facetious, but this is more serious than you think. If Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Tapatio also go in the tank, it could mark the end of civilization as we know it.

I don't know. I know a certain foreign individual who'd get mighty cranky if she had to cut back for whatever reason. It's bad enough when I take some of "her" Nutella.
