SEE IT: Insane Video Shows Chaos as Shoppers Go Crazy for Discounted Nutella

A discount on the chocolate spread Nutella sparked chaos at supermarkets in France, CNN reports.

Videos posted to social media showed the chaos that broke out across branches of the store chain Intermarche after they discounted jars of Nutella from about $5.60 to $1.75.

“It was a real disaster, 200 people were outside waiting for the supermarket’s opening,” an employee told CNN. “All of this mess for a Nutella jar.”

“People just rushed in, shoving everyone, breaking things. It was like an orgy,” another employee said. “We were on the verge of calling the police.”

Staff were forced to call police for help in at least one branch.

The store chain apologized to customers, saying they were “surprised” by the demand.

Police say no one was arrested in the Nutella Riots of 2018.
