Liquid chocolate cakes a German street

The chocolate quickly solidified.

According to the Associated Press, approximately one ton of molten chocolate spilled out of a storage tank at the DreiMeister chocolate factory.

The flood of chocolate became quite a traffic hazard, leaving firefighters with no choice but to break out their tools.

Officials said about 108 square feet of the street was coated with milk chocolate.

The local authority closed the road and set up oil warning signs while the clean-up took place, the newspaper reported.

The local fire department added: "Despite this heartbreaking incident, it is unlikely that a chocolate-free Christmas is imminent in Werl".

Chocolate production is slated to resume again on December 12.

The owner of the company said if the spill had happened closer to Christmas, it would have "been a catastrophe".

A street in Germany was paved in chocolate for a few hours after a spillage at a factory.

A "small technical defect" involving a storage tank causes chocolate to spill out from the factory. "There was no major damage". The factory sprung back to life on Wednesday, just in time to fill stockings with pralinen und schokoladentaler for the holidays.
