We were in the supermarket near us (Central Market) and I noticed this gigantic tub of Nutella. I’ve seen it before, but always assumed it was just a prop.
It’s 5Kg of Nutella with a pricetag of $59.99. So of course I had to do some math and see how that compared to the smaller 13Oz (371 gram) standard tubs on the left, priced at $4.40.
Turns out, if you’re willing to forego the novelty of a hilariously oversized Nutella jar, it’s more cost effective to get the same amount in small jars.
At $4.40 for 371 grams, you’ll get 5Kg for $59.30, 69 cents cheaper!
But this grocery is running a deal right now: 2 small jars for $7!
So at $7 for 742 grams (2*371 grams), 5Kg will cost $47.17, for a savings of almost $13. In other words, the bigger tub is actually marked up more than 25% from the smaller.
So much for savings in bulk. Yay math!
