World of Chocolate Wonderland, Shanghai, China.

Transcript of video:

Have you ever wondered what the Eifel tower would look like if it were made out of chocolate?! Or how about a carriage, that was made out of a giant pumpkin, that was made out of chocolate?Well now you know. Welcome to Shanghai’s World of Chocolate Wonderland, a feast for the eyes, and the tongue.

Towering architectural achievements made with only some tricky use of chocolate boggle the mind.Chocolate is amazingly versatile and can be molded into almost any shape.[Luo Shenling, 22-Year-Old University Student]: “At first when I walked in, I didn’t realize everything here is made of chocolate. Then I took a careful look, and realized it’s all real chocolate and all made with chocolate. I feel shocked and it’s really beautiful.”

But that wasn’t all! That’s right, chocolate fashion! A special cat walk had models flaunting edible outfits. The audience was melted to their seat.[Zhang Xiaoxiao, Model]:”My strongest feeling after wearing clothes is that I might be willing to eat them.”[Yu Mengxian, Model]: “The most difficult part of walking the catwalk in chocolate is that I was afraid the chocolates will drop or break into pieces.”This is already the second chocolate fashion show in Shanghai. The last one was in December 2011. So if you’re in Shanghai, stop by the World of Chocolate Wonderland. It’s seriously sweet!

Chocolate Wine and Beer

image

Cocoa di Vine

Never heard of Chocolate Wine? Well… It has been around for a few years now believe it or not. More and more vintners are coming up with exotic blends of wine including those with Chocolate! You will probably be able to find this in your dessert wine section.

Chocolate wines fall into two categories:

Port-style Wines which are dark red and have a rich dark chocolate taste e.g Rubis Chocolate Wine (photo below)

Adult milkshake style wines which are mixed with creams e.g Cocoa di Vine (photo above)

Cocoa di Vine is based on a blend of white wines.

Would you like to spend the night in a Chocolate Hotel Room?

Would you like to spend the night in a Chocolate Hotel Room? Although it has been a while since fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld designed this chocolate hotel room complete with a chocolate model eating a chocolate ice-cream. I couldn’t help but want to bring this one out of the chocolate news archives again.

Karl Lagerfeld Chocolate Hotel Room

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld designed this chocolate hotel room using 10 tons of Belgian Chocolate. Yum! I’m dribbling just at the thought of that amount of Chocolate… Absolute chocolate heaven! The chocolate guy on the bed is inspired by Baptiste Giabicioni, the designer’s favourite model and muse. This chocolate room was housed in a hotel in Paris.

Karl Lagerfeld Chocolate Hotel Room

Speaking of chocolate rooms, this next one, although not a hotel room, is a traditional Lithuanian sitting room made entirely of Dark and White chocolate. This room was adorned with chocolate furniture and interior items like edible candlesticks, books, flowers and paintings.
