Have you recovered from World Nutella Day, which was this Monday? If you didn't already do it every morning, you were supposed to slap a load of everyone's favourite chocolate and hazelnut spread on some toast and savour the flavour.
Perhaps we have too many days for things, but that doesn't stop Nutella being delicious. If you agree, here's some news that might just make your day.
Tesco is currently selling 1kg (that's a whole freakin' kilogram) of the good stuff for just £3.80 ($5.29).
Yes, just £3.80 for a huge tub of chocolatey spread that (unless you are a real fiend for it) should last you a good long while. The big tubs are normally about £5.30 or £5.20 (around $7.30), so you will be getting a bargain that - unlike Bitcoin - is only likely to get more expensive as the weeks go on.
Last week Lidl announced that it would be bringing the price down on the big tubs to £3.99 ($5.55) but Tesco has gone and lowered the bar even further.
It's only a few days since there were riots in France when the supermarket Intermarché lowered the price of a 950g tub of Nutella to just €1.41 (£1.24/$1.74). Hopefully the British public will react to this news with a bit more self-control than our French cousins.
The huge tubs are fun and all, but they are really, really big - meaning that if you don't eat a lot (as in, A LOT) of Nutella, then you are probably better off going for one of the smaller tubs.
In most of the UK's top supermarkets you can buy a 200g tub of the spread for about £2 ($2.78), which is pretty reasonable and will leave you space in your fridge for other things like, say, vegetables to fit in.
However, it is a pretty big period of the year for the makers of sweet, spreadable things. It's only a few days until Pancake Day - it's next Tuesday - and Nutella goes fantastically on pancakes (with a bit of banana if you're a pro).
Shrove Tuesday is on 13 February this year, and as well as Tesco's deal on Nutella, Iceland is offering free pancake mix, cooking oil, lemon juice and maple syrup when you spend a fiver on a frying pan.
This is a great deal if you need a frying pan, but in all honesty you could pick up the ingredients for less than a fiver anyway, so don't be a flipping fool.
Shrove Tuesday marks the day before the beginning of Lent, so it's a good chance to have a little of what you love before you give it up until Easter if that's your thing.
If that's not your thing, it's still a great excuse for pancakes.
