Police in Germany have a sticky situation on their hands after some thieves made off with 5.5 tonnes of Nutella.

The jars of chocolate-y spread were in a parked trailer in the centre of the town of Bad Hersfeld, the U.K. Express said, citing a report Monday from German news agency dpa.

The haul, taken some time over the weekend, is valued at approximately 15,000 euros (around $20,000 CAD).

Police aren't sure how many culprits they are looking for, but it is believed the same thieves stole a truckload of Red Bull from the same location a few weeks ago, and then about $40,000 worth of coffee two weeks ago, for what would make one very odd breakfast.

Bad Hersfeld is around 400 southwest of Berlin.
