Cut-price panettone invades breakfast table

Christmas cakes being snatched up at discount prices

(ANSA) - Rome, January 7 - Three-fifths of Italians are currently eating cut-price pandoro or panettone Christmas cake for breakfast instead of the typical biscuits or sweet snacks, the Italian Farmers' Confederation (CIA) said Thursday.
    Consumers are taking advantage of sale prices at supermarkets and discount stores on these two 'symbols' of Christmas in Italy. CIA said the trend is in keeping with a general drive among Italians to reduce food waste, particularly during the Christmas season.
