Two delivery trucks have spilled their delicious payloads across the highway, but not to worry, the spill of molasses and milk is nothing to cry about.

A tanker truck is leaking molasses onto eastbound Interstate 90 near Interstate 405, according to the Washington State Patrol, causing a sticky mess for drivers.

The spill is not currently blocking traffic, but with a cleanup expected in the near future, some lanes might need to be closed.
