Not only is it the ninetieth birthday of Wageningen University this year, it’s also the fiftieth birthday of the Smurf.

Chinese students were spotted at Albert Heijn supermarket, where you get a free Smurf for each fifteen euros you spend there. Originally minor characters in a Belgian story, Johan & Peewit, Smurfs are now known and loved in at least thirty-eight countries. The Albert Heijn action continues until 24 March.
