NUTELLA: Prices May Skyrocket Thanks to Hazelnut Shortage



Thanks to a worldwide shortage of hazelnuts, the price of Nutella may soon skyrocket.

Earlier this year, hazelnut flower fields in Turkey, where 70 percent of the hazelnuts in the world are grown, were destroyed by terrible frost and hailstorms.

Because so many of the crops were wiped out, the price of hazelnuts jumped 60 percent.

On top of that, cocoa is also in high demand, creating a perfect storm for Nutella, which uses both ingredients.

So if you’re a fan of Nutella, you might want to stock up on the stuff before the price goes up – or your local supermarket runs out.
