CAMDEN, N.J. – Authorities say a man has died after falling into a vat of melted chocolate in a New Jersey processing plant.

The Camden County prosecutor’s office identified the victim as 29-year-old Vincent Smith II of Camden. He was a temporary worker at the Cocoa Services Inc. plant.

The accident happened Wednesday morning as Smith was loading chocolate into a vat where it’s melted and mixed before being shipped elsewhere to be made into candy.

Prosecutor‘s spokesman Jason Laughlin says a co-worker tried to shut off the machine and two others tried to pull Smith out of the 8-foot-deep vat. He was hit and fatally injured by the agitator that mixes the chocolate.

When are these chocolate factories going to listen to Willy Wonka? Everyone knows an agitator won’t mix your chocolate nearly as well as a chocolate waterfall. If they had the chocolate river, Vincent may be still alive. Worst case: he ends up like Augustus Gloop and gets sucked up a tube.

Regardless, let’s see how many inappropriate jokes we can make about Vincent’s death…

- Finally, I know the secret ingredient!
- How do you fall into a vat of chocolate? He must have been a real Butterfinger.
- You hate to see that happen…I hope it wasn’t his PayDay.
- It was a sad day for most of the factory’s employees, but the incident had to have caused a few Snickers
- Damages to the factory’s equipment is reported to be around 100 Grand.

    Death by chocolate, no longer just a dessert.

    These arent even that good and I'm still evil for saying them.

    Maybe he'd have lived if the three men attempting the rescue were the three muskateers
