BERLIN — These thieves really have sticky fingers. Yummy sticky fingers
Police said Monday an unknown number of culprits made off with 15 tons of Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread from a warehouse in the central German town of Bad Hersfeld over the weekend.
The gooey loot is worth an estimated $200,000. But many insiders say that the joy of eating Nutella is actually — priceless. Nutella on the black market can go for as much as $100 per jar.
There have been a large number of Nutella robberies in the last few months because the company has fallen behind in its production schedule due to a massive increase in demand. Supermarkets report that Nutella is being stolen at an alarming rate. But no theft was anywhere near as large as this 15 ton heist.
Here’s one suspect:
But there are many, many suspects as young people across the world are eating Nutella as much as ten times a day.
People are becoming addicted to Nutella. Some are speculating that the company is putting drugs in Nutella to make people addicted. There are even rumors of people injected Nutella right into their veins.
Germans are blaming the Italians for stealing the Nutella. ”Italians are born theives,” said one top German official. ”I’m sure we will find all of our stolen Nutella in Italy.”
Some are speculating that a war between Germany and Italy may start because of Nutella.
Please, if you are offered any black market Nutella, don’t eat it. Send it to Weekly World News and we will get it to the proper authorities.
