Police in the German town of Niederaula reported the theft of 5 tons of Nutella over the weekend. The artery-clogging spread, valued at 27 million calories, was stolen from a truck. Two weeks ago thieves in the same town helped themselves to a truckload of coffee worth US $39,000. Police spokesman Manfred Knoch agreed that local lowlifes might be planning a mighty big breakfast.
