Willy Wonka wouldn't have dreamed up this chocolate mess

A spill at a chocolate factory in Germany created a scene that looked straight out of "Willy Wonka."

A storage tank at the factory in Westonnen overflowed, sending a stream of liquid chocolate oozing into the street.

As soon as the sweet spill touched the cool concrete, it hardened.

Dozens of firefighters were tasked with cleaning up the mess - which was more difficult than you'd expect.

They used shovels, hot water and even torches to remove all of the chocolate from cracks and holes on the road.
