It was a scene out of Willy Wonka when one Swiss town was left covered in Cocoa powder!

Earlier this week, officials at the Lindt & Spruengli factory in Olten, Switzerland said a malfunction in the ventilation system, along with strong winds, ended up coating the town with a layer of fine cocoa powder.
Although the powder is harmless to people, the company was kind enough to offer cleanup services for the town.
With all that’s happened in 2020, a little chocolate rain is breath of fresh air.
