We have news that, for one city in Switzerland, it snowed chocolate for a while.

The chocoholic dream came true for residents of a small Swiss town on Saturday when "chocolate snow" seemed to fall from the sky.

Small chocolate shavings rained down on Olten, between Zurich and Basel, after a malfunction at a Lindt and Spr√ľngli factory.

The chocolate manufacturer confirmed that it had a minor defect in the cooling ventilation for a line for roasted cocoa nibs (crushed cocoa beans that are then made into chocolate), according to the Associated Press.

Strong gusts of wind then picked up the chocolate powder, leaving a dusting of cocoa over the area surrounding the factory.

Read the rest. The tweeted reactions of the locals are funny.
