It was literally raining chocolate in Switzerland this week.
Chocolate covered neighbourhoods after the ventilation system at the Lindt chocolate factory malfunctioned.
The Lindt & Spruengli company confirmed that there had been a minor defect in the cooling ventilation for a line for roasted “cocoa nibs” in its factory in Olten.
Combined with strong winds, the powder spread around the immediate vicinity of the factory, leaving a fine cocoa dusting.
The company says one car was lightly coated, and that it has offered to pay for any cleaning needed - but hasn’t yet been taken up on the offer, AP reported.
The ventilation system has been repaired.
