I had no idea that was a thing. Here in NJ, our factories only give us clear coat destroying acid rain and frogs with extra legs.
That makes me think of Boston's Great Molasses Flood of 1919, which was not at all the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs fun that it might sound like as it it resulted in 21 deaths and 150 injuries.
You might be onto something though with the sugar refining hypothesis. In 1969, a Borden plant in Chester, SC which manufactured the non-dairy creamer, Cremora (not a Godzilla foe surprisingly), had a problem with its exhaust vents which caused the ejection of clouds of non-dairy (thankfully for the lactose intolerant) creamer into the air.
The creamer rained back down on homes nearby, mixing with rain, dew and possibly coffee alike.
