(Newser) – Now we all love Phish Food, but this is a step too far: Two men recently stole $1,380 worth of Ben & Jerry's ice cream from a truck sitting outside a wholesale center in Sweden, reports the Local. Unfortunately for the sweet-toothed Swedes, they were caught in the act by a security guard, who started chasing them. They ended up ditching their bounty, which had melted during the getaway and "had to be thrown away," says a police spokesperson. One of the robbers, 18, was caught in the chase, but the other escaped and is still at large.

$1000 ? That must be the street value just outside the barbed wire at Celebrity Fit Boot Camp. They shouldda just gone to IKEA and ate their damn strawberry fish like everyone else.
