Every child’s dream came true at the Lindt & Spruengli factory last week when residents of a swiss town in Olten were treated to a cloud of fine cocoa powder ‘snowing’ down from the sky!
The problem appeared to originate from a malfunction with the company’s ventilation system. Lindt & Spruengli confirmed the reports last week, saying that a cooling defect in a system that roasted the cocoa nibs was the cause of the phenomena.
Strong winds last Friday conspired to whip the fine cocoa dust up into the air so that it came down covering the immediate area with ‘chocolate snow’.
The company has offered to pay for any cleaning costs, but as yet nobody has taken them up on the offer.
