Factory spills liquid chocolate all over the road


Posted on Wednesday, 12 December, 2018 | Comment icon 13 comments
Firefighters in the town of Werl in Germany were tasked with cleaning up a huge chocolate spill earlier this week.
The incident, which occurred outside the DreiMeister factory, saw around one ton of liquid chocolate gush from a storage tank and on to the street due to a 'small technical defect'.

The cold weather soon caused the confectionery to solidify on the ground, leaving firefighters struggling to clean up the mess.

They worked for hours using shovels, hot water and torches to remove the chocolate.

"About a ton of chocolate ran out into the yard and from there onto the street," said a spokesman for the town's fire department. "Despite this heart breaking incident, it is unlikely that a chocolate-free Christmas is imminent in Werl."

This reminds me of that guy who died working in a chocolate factory when he fell in a vat full of chocolate. At his funeral they played Paper Lace's - 'Billy Don't be an Aero'
