Have Some Nutella With Your Morning Coffee?

Just how good *is* this stuff?
I like Nutella as much as the next person. In fact, I probably like Nutella more than the the next person. Maybe more than the next two people combined. There is nothing in life more perfect than a Nutella and banana crepe, in my mind. But still, I find the fact that thieves in Germany made off with five metric tons of Nutella a bit hard to fathom. That’s 176,370 ounces; more than 13,500 standard size jars, or 6,500 of the larger containers.

In reading about this particular heist, I ran across The Atlantic’s speculations on the possible uses for 11,000 pounds of Nutella, of which I found this the most amusing:

…if there’s a major heist of 10,000 pounds of toast/waffles/bananas in the coming days, then that probably points to someone—or a group of people—with serious Nutella addictions. 

And then there are speculations about hoarding and black markets. I would just love to see a crime story written about Nutella smuggling. Mmmmm… think it’s time for breakfast.

    Babysat all day yesterday–made a ton of Nutella sandwiches. My grandkids could easily be suspects in the heist. Not sure how they made the German connection–but they are nothing, if not resourceful. Is there a reward if I turn them in?

    Not if they’ve eaten all the evidence!

    G-R-O-A-N!! You’re right. I was literally scrapping the last jar clean.

    The morning coffee is important for a person who wants to enjoy the morning breakfast. According to my point of view the coffee is necessary to have in the breakfast with the Nutella to mix it.
