Simon Dawson/Bloomberg via Getty Images(LONDON) — Coffee and energy drinks are apparently not the only food products that thieves have an affinity for in Niederaula, Germany.

About 11,000 pounds of Nutella were stolen this weekend from a truck parked at a former train station.

Police reportedly believe the thieves transferred the chocolate-hazelnut spread to another truck at the station.  About $20,000 worth of goods were stolen, Osthessen-News reported.

The area has been the site of several burglaries recently.  Five tons of coffee were stolen from a truck a few weeks ago and another incident included a missing truckload of Red Bull.
