Were you covered by chocolate in Olten?

Having been quite busy lately, I missed the local news about Olten being "besieged" with chocolate rain from the Lindt factory. In fact, I first found out about it after being informed of this phenonemon by my family in the states. Now I've discovered that my FB is full of articles on this as well.

Did anyone actually experience this first hand?

LOL, good fun. New tourist attraction.
They should do this in the strawberry season.

And I liked this bit:
<<Lindt & Sprüngli repaired the issue and has offered to compensate anyone for damage done by the powder, but there have been no complaints.>>
