NICK EICHER, HOST: Not sure what to call this chocolate manna?
MARY REICHARD, HOST: Mmm, I’m listening.
EICHER: Yeah, a car owner in Switzerland recently noticed his car dusted with a layer of brownish powder. Another person noticed the stuff falling from the sky, the color of chocolate.
Of course, this is not a biblical provision. It was a ventilation malfunction at a nearby factory. A chocolate factory.
AUDIO: You found Wonka’s last golden ticket!
Well, not exactly. Not Willy Wonka’s factory. The Lindt chocolate factory. L-I-N-D-T—a Swiss corporation.
Anyway, the malfunction sent bits of crushed cocoa beans into the air. The wind picked it up and sprinkled it all over the town, up in the north of Switzerland.
REICHARD: Let it snow, let it snow!
EICHER: It’s The World and Everything in It.
