The Nazis planned to kill Sir Winston Church with exploding chocolate bars, according to recently unveiled wartime documents. The portly British Prime Minister was known for delving into the good life, with fine cigars, brandy and a voracious sweet tooth.
The intricate plan called for Nazi bomb makers to lace explosives into rich dark chocolate wrapped in black and gold paper, which would be delivered by secret German agents working in Britain to a dining room used by Churchill and his cabinet. The chocolate reportedly had enough explosives to blow anyone within several meters to bits.
The explosive plan was uncovered by British spies, who neutralized the threat by drawing up poster-sized images of chocolate warning the general public to avoid the combustible treat.
