What exactly could you do with 5 tons of stolen Nutella?

nutellajarsThat is the question many are trying to answer.

Police said on Monday an unknown number of culprits made off with 5 metric tons (5.5 tons) of Nutella chocolate-hazelnut spread from a parked trailer in the central German town of Bad Hersfeld over the weekend.

The gooey loot is worth an estimated 16,000 euros (~ $20,710).

Germans news agency DPA reported that thieves had previously stolen a load of energy drinks from the same location.

Here’s the problem, resale value is not even that high considering 5 tons are only worth about $20k, so unless these guys run some kind of market, have a sweet tooth for stolen sweets, or there’s a weird sweets black market we don’t know of, I honestly don’t see the point.
