L is for Lady Liberty

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.

Remember, 100% of Train’s proceeds from Save Me, San Francisco Chocolate sales will support Family House, a non-profit located in San Francisco. (http://savemesanfrancisco.com/profiles/blogs/statue-of-liberty-chocolate)

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.

  1. I love this line: “Chocolate is surely a pleasure, but there is no pleasure sweeter than freedom itself.” So simple, yet so powerful and true!

    Your blog is such a treasure! Thank you for sharing it with the world. 🙂

  2. Everything can be made into chocolate, can’t it. I have never seen the Statue of Liberty in real life. I would love to.
