The mystery of who stole a 44-pound gold cookie from the outside of the German headquarters of biscuit maker Bahlsen has been solved. Well, sort of.
A thief calling his or herself the “Krümel Monster” (Cookie Monster) has taken responsibility for the high-profile heist. And to prove they’re in possession of the famous gold piece, the theif/hero posted a picture of themselves dressed as the iconic Sesame Street character and taking a bite out of their giant cookie plunder.
“I have the biscuit! You want it and therefore you want on one day in February, to give biscuits to all the children in Bult hospital. But those with milk chocolate, not those with dark chocolate and not those without chocolate. And a golden biscuit for the child cancer ward.”
