So far we’ve seen both the Eiffel Tower and the Kremlin recreated in chocolate. Today I bring you one of the United States’ national monuments, one that could well be our greatest source of pride and inspiration.
Chocolate Statue of Liberty – Confectioners put final touches on the 13-foot tall Chocolate Statue of Liberty created using 2.5 tons of chocolate in Paris in 1986. The chocolate lady liberty is made from a mold by French artist Auguste Bartholdi, who designed the real Statue of Liberty.
There are smaller versions available, with some of the proceeds donated to charity.
I’ve been pursuing the A to Z Challenge in a light-hearted vein this year. Now that I have come to the Statue of Liberty herself, I would like to take a moment to reflect on what she stands for. Chocolate is surely a pleasure, but there is no pleasure sweeter than freedom itself.
