Town road gets paved with German chocolate after factory accident


Liquid chocolate spilled out of a storage vat at a chocolate factory in Westoennen, north west Germany this week, paving the road with delicious German chocolate. Photos of the rather glorious accident has been going viral online.

According to the local press, 25 firefighters were deployed to pry the solidified chocolate off the roads. Responding to the unusual case, the firemen resorted to using shovels, hot water and torches to remove the chocolate off the road so motorists will not be inconvenienced or injured.

Interestingly, Mr Markus Luckey, the boss of the¬†DreiMeister chocolate factory where the accident occurred only called the mishap a “small technical defect.” Had the spill occurred closer to Christmas, Mr Luckey candidly said “that would have been a catastrophe.”
