The worst dramas, such as the shortage of “Marmite” in New Zealand, which became known as “Marmaggedon,” have been avoided so far. But he was really upset for many when a Staffordshire ice cream merchant tapped into supply and demand. His clients had to pay five pounds for each “99” without warning. “I know about the lack of chips, but what the hell!” One tweet. Others were angry and spoke of “exploitation”. In the end, the ice cream seller promised not to melt his prices, but at least write them down.
Chocolate caterpillar turns into an elephant
Revenge is beautiful, on the other hand, supermarket chain Marks & Spencer may have thought about the spring and launched legal action against rival Aldi. The reason: “Aldis Cuthbert the Caterpillar,” a baby caterpillar-shaped cake, consists of biscuits and milk chocolate like the bestseller “Colin the Caterpillar,” and is cut from white chocolate like a smiling face.

But since inventing cakes is no picnic, Marks & Spencer emphasized that Aldi should make her own creations.
Supermarket giant Sainsbury had to know that advertising doesn’t always fall on the buttery side of life. Because when a branch in Cornwall showed a man on a poster advertising scones with clotted cream and jam, it sparked criticism.

Diversity may make life sweet, but Sainsbury admitted after the boycott that the poster featured a “con man” and apologized for the “blasphemy”.
