Chocolate Big Ben

Posted by in Chocolate News on December 12 2008 | Leave A Comment

Italy makes some pretty good chocolate, but there’s no official word on exactly what kind of dark chocolate was used to build this 11 meter high, 8 tonne replica of the famous clock tower at the Houses of Parliament.

Apparently, the tower was built for a Christmas food festival in the town of Macerata Feltria and is scheduled to be chopped up and fed to the public right about…… now.

(Oh, and yes, I know Big Ben is the bell. But it’s so much easier to type than “Palace of Westminster Clock Tower”. So there.)
