Chris Bundas –
If you’re like me, and just absolutely love the s#!t out of Nutella… sorry, I’ve got bad news.
A spike in the price of hazelnuts due to bad weather and disease means the cost of Nutella could be skyrocketing in 3…, 2…, 1…
Hazelnuts are now more popular than ever – because more and more people keep realizing how amazing it tastes when combined with chocolate in a spread.
But hazelnut costs have risen by more than 60 per cent over the past year, due to crop-killing hail storms and frost that hit the world’s biggest hazelnut producer, Turkey.
Turkey controls 70 per cent of the hazelnut market — but even Canada’s small supply is in jeopardy, devastated by a disease known as the Eastern Filbert Blight.
Better hit Costco and stock up now, that’s what I’m about to do!
