French to shell out over snails


news.bbc.co.uk

Producers warn the price of snails - one of France's more exotic foodstuffs - is about to soar, because of economic development in eastern Europe.

France consumes more than 14,000 tonnes of snails every year but practically none of them are actually French.

With the most prized species now under protection, the industry relies on central and east European imports.

I suppose all is lost when the price of snails soars up. You thought high oil prices were bad... The French will revolt no?

Must be a slow day in the news, especially in Europe.
