Yummiest Christmas Tree
If you think that fiber optics make a great material for a Christmas tree, then you haven't been to Paris, France, where they had the tallest chocolate Christmas tree.
The tree stands at a delicious 32 feet and weighing more than 8,000 pounds. By contrast, the world record holder for the largest chocolate bar weighs in at 9,722 pounds.
It made use of around $45,000 worth of dark chocolate. The creator is French chocolate maker Patrick Roger.
The world record holder, however, is chef Alain Roby who created a chocolate Christmas tree that stood at 22 feet, roughly 10 feet shorter than Roger's yummy creation. The reason is that Roger did not go for the world record as he claims his efforts is for charity. Roger plans to auction parts of his chocolate tree and donate the money to advance the efforts of studying neuromuscular diseases.
