A group of German thieves made off with 5.5 tons of Nutella over the weekend. 

Their haul of chocolate-hazelnut goodness is worth $20,710.

Police are unsure how many thieves were involved but revealed that this is the third food-related robbery in the area in the last 30 days. Large amounts of Red Bull energy drink and coffee were stolen in previous incidents.
