Talk about a sticky situation.

An unknown number of thieves made off with an estimated 5 tons of Nutella from a parked trailer in central Germany over the weekend, The Associated Press reported.

The big haul of gooey chocolate-hazelnut spread is worth an estimated $20,000.

Police aren't sure how many culprits they are looking for, but believe they are the same thieves who stole a truckload of Red Bull from the same location a few weeks ago, German news agency dpa reported.

About $40,000 worth of coffee was taken two weeks ago, in what could be one very odd breakfast spread.
