KENOSHA, Wisconsin -- You might like the idea of being immersed in chocolate for two hours.

But for a Wisconsin man, it was an ordeal.

Donovan Garcia works at a company that supplies chocolate ingredients.

This morning, he was pushing chocolate down into a vat at the company in Kenosha, when it became loose and he slid into the hopper.

He says it was in his hair, ears, mouth -- everywhere, and that he felt like he weighed 900 pounds.

The chocolate was 43 degrees.

Co-workers tried to free him, with the help of police and firefighters.

But they couldn't until the chocolate was thinned out with cocoa butter.

A police captain says it was like ''quicksand.''

The 21-year-old man was treated for minor injuries.


"Mmmmmm. Floor pie."
