What do you dream of?

Riding unicorns into battle alongside an army of elves?

Playing your latest chart-topper before a screaming crowd of thousands?

Walking into a world made of candy?

Well, if you nodded your head enthusiastically to that last one, you should check this out...

Welcome to Chocolate Street!

No, you're not dreaming. This really happened!

On Monday, December 10, a late night leak at the DreiMeister candy factory in Westönnen, Germany caused an accident of truly delicious consequence. A full ton of liquid milk chocolate overflowed from a storage tank, pouring into the street outside. Or rather, the chocolate street!

As soon as it hit the cold pavement, it hardened. The result? A giant, smooth pancake of cocoa goodness. Drooooooool ...

What happened next? We'd love to say that everyone in town woke up and celebrated in the chocolate street with a candy-eating frenzy. But.

Instead, a couple dozen firefighters arrived on the scene to chip, chop, and hose the candy from road.

To which we say ...


At any rate, we hope that the folks in Hershey, Pennsylvania were paying attention. Those Hershey Kisses street lamps that you have on Chocolate Avenue are adorable and all, but if you really want to take things to the next level ... just saying!

  1. Ok. So, first Germany caused a accident, then there was a chocolate road, then there was a candy frenzy, then the firefighters cleaned the ground up, then everyone was like ” WHY DID YOU DO THAT!?!?!?! 😯 ” it was TOTALLY CRAZY and if it fell into a warm gutter then it would be a REAL (well, almost.) CHOCOLATE RIVER! 😀 I would LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE that. I know the movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”. I was jealous by all they chocolate they had in the movie and I was also close to drooling 😐
    anyways…… I guess Thats it 😐 🙂
