German police have issued an alert after up to €70,000 worth of Nutella was stolen from a lorry.Man, it would take at least a week to eat that much Nutella!
Thieves made off with the trailer – filled with 20 tonnes of Nutella, Kinder Surprise eggs and other chocolate products – from the German town of Neustadt.
The haul, believed to be worth between €50,000 and €70,000, was taken between Saturday evening and midday on Sunday.
According to The Times, Neustadt police released a statement urging people to immediately report “anyone offering large quantities of chocolate via unconventional channels”.I wonder if they sell Nutella on the side of the road in Germany, the way we do crabs in Maryland?
A police spokesman added: “It is not even clear if they were after the sweets or after the trailer at this point we do not know what their motive was.”
