German authorities are reporting that 5 tons of Nutella was stolen over the weekend when thieves made off with a parked trailer full of product.

I guess "buying a container from the store" was too mundane for them.

Inexplicable to me. The world's supply of that stuff isn't threatened in the least by me. Hate the stuff.

Really, if they wanted that much nutella, couldn't they just go to Costco?

I recall something like this happening at Harvard a few months back with some students.

I know why they did it! They were the good nutrition equivalent of PETA, seeking to spare zillions of people from the mistaken impression that junk is healthy.


I thought I recalled a [ahem!] nutty commercial promoting Nutella on toast as a nutritious breakfast for kids. You know, made with real hazelnuts, so it's gotta be healthy?


Yup. Nutella settled on a couple of lawsuits charging the manufacturer with fraudulently claiming Nutella is healthy. Turns out that it's as good for you as a Three Musketeers bar. Details here: blogs.laweekly.com/squidink/2012/04/nute...


Maybe since the company couldn't run that commercial anymore in the U.S., they translated it and sent it to Germany? Stranger things...

I really like Nutella which is why I don't buy it anymore.  I tend to pick at the jar until it is empty.
