Great Wall of China - In Chocolate

Chocolate isn't all that popular in China, but Chinese confectioneries have come up with a plan to change that.
A chocolate replica of the Great Wall measures 33 feet in length and 6 feet in height, made of dark chocolate bricks and white chocolate was used as the mortar.

It comes complete with 500 edible chocolate Terracotta Warriors.

The exhibit was made for the Chocolate Wonderland display which is part of a Beijing-based chocolate promotional event focused on marketing chocolate to the Chinese public.
Such marketing apparently is necessary in China where chocolate doesn’t make it to the top ten list of favorite snacks.
