I have always tried to believe that people are much the same all over the world although I do find it rather difficult to believe that to be so with a people who vote someone like Trump to be their president. So what do you make of this business with the cut price Nutella riots in France? I doubt if we Brits. would get so hetup if say Marmite or HP Sauce was sold at a reduced price. So what differences if any do you find from one nationality to the next?

Interesting that a nation that prides itself on it's couture and cuisine and lauds itself over its self perceived cultural superiority is not above getting in a punch up over cut priced tooth rottingly sweet nut paste.

Liberté, égalité, fraternité merde, donne moi que c'est a moi. Coppez vous that gros cul. Ooooof au secours, mamon aidez mois, ou sont les gendarmes. Biff Pan Zock.

Don't see it as any different from the so called stiff upper lip English when they go to the Bpxing Day sales.

Yeah, but they've now fizzled out.

Bad choice of iconic products. HP sauce now made in Netherlands with changed recipe and Marmite owned by Unilever.

I don't know what others think of Nutella, but I found it to be about the most sickeningly sweet substance I'd ever tasted.

The same would probably happen in Glasgow if they dropped the price of Bucky to £1 a bottle

No. stupidity is not racist, it can effect anyone although Americans do seem to have susceptibility to it.

Marmite & HP Sauce is sold at reduced prices in B&M, but I dislike both intensely!

Not only that, I believe it contains very few nuts and no real chocolate. I have always avoided it and have no intention of breaking the habit of a lifetime.
