PARIS–Blame the croissant.
French pastries–and butter–have become so popular abroad that the increased demand led to a mini shortage of the dairy product in French supermarkets.
According to the body in charge of listing the cost of foods, the price of butter rose 60 percent in August to 6.7 euros ($7.9) per kilogram, creating fears of a shortage of Christmas treats such as the traditional yule log.
