Chocolate rain in a Swiss town
If there is one country where chocolate could rain, it is Switzerland. In Olten, powdered chocolate falls from the sky.
Residents of an industrial area in Olten, a town in northwestern Switzerland, have been reporting powdered chocolate falling from the sky for several days. If chocolate was to fall from the sky anywhere in the world, it had to be in Switzerland. The European country is well known for making perhaps the best chocolate in the world, so it makes sense to expect a chocolate shower.
Regardless, reports of chocolate powder falling from the sky in the town of Olten started appearing online a few days ago, along with photos of cars covered in brown matter. People could hardly believe it, but authorities confirmed it, as did the company responsible for the bizarre phenomenon.
The town of Olten, in the canton of Solothurn in Switzerland, is home to a Lindt & Spruengli chocolate factory and a malfunction in the cooling ventilation system of a cocoa roasting line at the plant apparently caused the powder to be released into the plant. outside air. Strong winds that have been blowing in the area since Friday morning have transported the powdered chocolate from the factory to nearby residential areas.
The chocolate factory has worked hard to resolve the ventilation problem and stresses that the powder is safe for people or the environment. Well if that is the case I guess they could let it rain a little longer… People spent a day in the field with this wacky news, joke about walking outside with a scoop of milk and from cereal to grab chocolate, to lament that it’s not raining Swiss watches instead.
