The great wall of chocolate

In a recent campaign to convince residents to eat more sweets, a team of Chinese confectioners built a 10 metre long replica of the Great Wall of China entirely out of chocolate.

According to local news sources, the miniature wonder consists of solid dark chocolate bricks held in place with white chocolate and is part of an attraction at the World Chocolate Wonderland exhibition and trade show later this month in Beijing.

Up to 80,000kg of chocolate was used to make the display, which also features 560 chocolate Terracotta Warriors – an army that’s unlikely to last as long as the original.
