Holy hazelnut.

The school's Dining division started offering the treat in February, but supply continues to run low — partially, some suspect, because students are stealing some for later.

The Columbia Spectator broke the news on Tuesday. BuzzFeed did the math to figure out just how much students are eating and/or hoarding.

Columbia officials say they're losing $5,000 worth of Nutella each week. Using the numbers above, that's 850-950 pounds worth of supply.

About the same weight of a horse (840 to 1,200 pounds) or seven average-sized couches weekly.
