Causes of Chocolate Rain
It should be noted, Olten City is home to the Lindt & Spruengli chocolate factory. Meanwhile, the brown rain that occurred was apparently caused by the factory. Switzerland is known to be the best chocolate making country in the world, so it’s no wonder that it rains chocolate in that country. The Lindt & Spruengli plant experienced a malfunction of the cooling ventilation system of the cocoa roasting line in the factory which caused the powder to be released into the outside air. Strong winds in the area caused cocoa powder from the factory to be blown into nearby residential areas.

The public has been hearing for days about the strange news. They joked about walking outside with balls of milk and cereal to catch chocolate, until they complained about the phenomenon and wished it rained in Swiss watches.
