Man Eating Chocolate

Posted by in Chocolate News on August 19 2006 | Leave A Comment

You have to laugh. Really. You have to.

According to Yahoo News:

“It might sound like a chocoholic’s dream, but stepping into a vat of viscous chocolate became a two-hour nightmare for a 21-year-old man Friday morning.

Darmin Garcia, an employee of a company that supplies chocolate ingredients, said he was pushing the chocolate down into the vat at Debelis Corp. because it was stuck. But it became loose and he slid into the hopper.”

…and the best bit…

“Co-workers, police and firefighters tried to free the man but couldn’t get him loose until the chocolate was thinned out with cocoa butter.”

Rumours that a representative from Cadbury threw in some raisins and tried to market it is ‘New Improved Fruit & Nut’ are entirely false. Apparently.

But it does raise the question – what would you do if you were trapped in a large vat of chocolate?

  1. Yell “FIRE!!!!” No one’s gonna come rescue you if you yell “CHOCOLATE!!!!”

  2. Great Blog! You should do a post about pairing chocolates with types of port wines! I would link to it on my wine blogs and websites!

  3. To get out of a vat of chocolate?

    EASY – I would do what any sane woman would do – EAT!!!!

  4. I’ll bet he had women all over him after that escapade! Imagine, a man who smelled like chocolate?!

    Surprised they haven’t made it a cologne yet. It’d appeal much more than Old Spice, I think.

    I too am surprised that there is not yet a chocolate cologne. After all we can get chocolate scented candles, so why not cologne? I’d buy it and use it with my vanilla one.

    I did buy my daughter some chococlate scented body lotion, and the Body Shop’s cocoa butter lotion does (did?) have a distinctly choccy aroma.
    I’d rather smell of chocolate than David Bleedin’ Beckham any day!
