Five tons of Nutella, a popular (and delicious) chocolate and nut spread, were stolen from a commercial trailer in Germany over the week-end. The thieves lifted seven pallets of the delectable breakfast substance from the trailer which had been parked in an unused area of a train station north of Frankfurt.
The pallets were probably transported by truck and their whereabouts are unknown. The value of the Nutella was estimated at around $21,000. The area from which it was stolen is a popular spot to park trailers over the week-end as in Germany, it is forbidden to use a commercial trailer during week-ends. Thieves have caught on to this trend and have recently stolen $40,000 worth of coffee and more recently 20 pallets containing over 34,000 cans of energy drinks.
