The next morning after that, there was a storm of pancakes followed with a downpour of maple syrup for the pancakes that flooded the town.
A giant pancake covered the school. After all attempts failed to get it off because of its weight, the school was closed forever.
Then lunch one day brought 50 or 60 inch drifts of cream cheese and jelly sandwiches. The children who were eating these sandwiches for lunch ate themselves sick and the day for them ended with a stomachache.
Finally, the worst disaster in Chewandswallow history erupted when a giant tomato tornado devastated numerous houses, buildings, and roads. People sneezed themselves silly likely due to an awful salt and pepper storm that was accompanied by the tornado and running to avoid the tomatoes. At last, cleanup for the sanitation department service became too infeasible.
Therefore, as the job was too big, the service gave up and shut down operations forever. The entire Sanitation Department of Chewandswallow was permanently discontinued in the town not only their service; but also their merchandise and locations.

Due to the service ceasing operations, this left the residents of Chewandswallow to suffer the devastating food. People feared for their lives, as giant pieces of food hailed down on Chewandswallow, destroying homes and businesses.
Stores are boarded up, and there was no longer any more school for the children due to the schools being closed for good. Finally, the residents of Chewandswallow decided to permanently abandon the town. It was a matter of survival.
They decide to relocate to a different community with normal, non-edible meteorological patterns. The people of Chewandswallow built giant boats; made out of a stale bread sandwich style, glued together with peanut butter and marshmallow fluff. This turned their "sandwich boat" into a giant peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich.
They then set sail and off to a new, permanent land. Now safe from the hazards presented by the raining meals, the townsfolk settle into their new home which the book never mentioned by name. Though life is now much more peaceful, now that nobody fears of getting hit by a hamburger again, the townsfolk are forced to the new weather, which only rains rain and snows snow. The place to get food from is a store and not the sky including malls and grocery stores.

Food often has to be cooked prior to serving as opposed to any meats which came down "pre-cooked" back at Chewandswallow. Everyone lives happily ever after.
Nobody ever got hit by a hamburger again nor ever again dared to go back to Chewandswallow to find out what happened to it. They were too afraid. Now cutting back to the grandchildren, as the grandfather finishes the bedtime story, the granddaughter, in first-person narration, then mentions that she and Henry were still awake; awake until the very end of Grandpa's story.
The following morning, the grandfather's grandchildren awaken to discover snowfall.
After bundling up and hurrying outside to play, the granddaughter describes how the sun looks like a pat of butter and the snow like mashed potatoes. She imagines that the sun as butter and the snow as mashed potatoes is like the food in the weather at Chewandswallow from the story that Grandpa had told her and Henry the night before. Because it looks like that, she and Henry could almost smell mashed potatoes.People depend on their environment each and every day.
And they added so much to the story!
My plan was to catch extra portions of the foods I liked and hide them under my bed so that I could have whatever food I wanted whenever I wanted it, and nobody could stop me.
