A boulevard in a western German the town were given a repaving worthy of Willy Wonka when a tonne of chocolate flowed out of a manufacturing unit and solidified at the pavement.
The German newspaper Soester Anzeiger reported “small technical defect” involving a garage tank brought about the chocolate to spill out from the DreiMeister chocolate manufacturing unit in Westoennen.
After hitting the cold pavement, the milk chocolate temporarily hardened.
About 25 firefighters labored to pry the chocolate off with shovels. Additionally they used scorching water and torches to take away last bits from cracks and holes.
Corporate boss Markus Luckey instructed the Anzeiger the manufacturing unit can be again in motion on Wednesday. Luckey stated if the spill had took place nearer to Christmas, “that may had been a disaster”.
