A pop-up cafe has devised a genius new way of overcharging hipster customers by selling single spoonfuls of Nutella for $5 each.
Confectionery store Spoonful of Sugar has launched a series of calorie-laden teaspoons containing the beloved hazelnut spread, peanut butter and jelly and several bite-sized dessert combinations.
At the pop-up in Melbourne, $5 will get patrons a fleeting taste of timeless favourites such as the ‘Naughty Nutella’, ‘Playful PB&J’, ‘Sinful Salted Caramel’ and ‘Blissful Banoffee’.
The tiny mouthfuls of sugary treats will be on sale at a secret location – but not every potential customer is sold on the expensive idea.
‘This isn’t cool. This is the biggest spoonful of s**t I’ve ever seen. $5. F*** me!
‘People in this city are literally surviving on a few dollars a day and some bright spark thought this would be a good way to generate some income. Greedy bastards,’ one man wrote on Facebook.
‘Who would actually pay that?’ Some were unimpressed with the expensive dessert treat
‘This is a joke. Why open a pop up that will get more people laughing at you than buying off you?’ another unimpressed person said.
But other dessert connoisseurs seemed happy to splash cash on the tiny spoonfuls of sugary goodness.
‘These look delicious! Do customers get to keep spoons as part of the whole experience?’ one woman asked.
‘Finally a serving size that fits my macros,’ another person joked.
