It is amazing what people can do with chocolate. Just look at the World's Longest Chocolate Train, which is 112 feet long. It isn't the heaviest chocolate sculpture though. That honor remains with the 8 ton chocolate replica of an ancient Mayan pyramid.
The Food Network has aired at least two chocolate challenge shows. In one chefs created chocolate sculptures with the theme of love. In the other, chefs had to create actual evening dresses out of chocolate that could be worn down the runway.
It can be fun to go into a fancy chocolate shop and see all the beautiful creations. It is even better if you can smell melted chocolate and see wonderful treats being made.
People have such interesting preferences when it comes to chocolate too. Nuts or no nuts? Milk, dark, white chocolate, or a combination? What goes well with chocolate? Peanut butter, fruit, coffee, pretzels, crackers, cheese, caramel, mint, bacon... The combinations seem endless. The price of chocolate varies as widely as the quality and everyone has their own opinion on which brand is the best. I know I have my personal favorite brands and ways of enjoying chocolate. What about you?
