Brawls broke out in French supermarkets as shoppers scrambled to get their hands on discounted jars of the chocolate and hazelnut spread Nutella.
The intermarket chain launched a massive discount on the spread, reducing the price of a 33 and a half ounce jar by almost 70 percent, from $5.60 to $1.75 a jar. .
The sale led to a rush on Nutella in one supermarket in Toulon, with shoppers shoving each other as they tried to get their hands on the jars.
Ferrero, the company that produces Nutella, said "The decision for the special offer was taken unilaterally by intermarket".
