Delicious displays at Chocolate Wonderland are attracting hundreds of sweet-toothed enthusiasts in Taiwan. Organizers hope the lavish setting will tickle the taste buds of millions of potential visitors. Damion Jones has the sticky details.
After a successful Beijing debut earlier this year, Chocolate Wonderland has added Taiwanese flavor to its palate, with traditional salty snacks like beef noodles and rice cakes suddenly turning sweet.
Delectable replicas of such traditional Chinese art pieces as porcelain vases are also on display.
Liao Yixuan, Teacher, said, "I think the replicas are really well made, and look real. For example, if you don't look carefully at life-sized replicas of blue and white porcelains you wouldn't be able to tell if they are real."
To the disappointment of some visitors, however, the items showcased in the exhibition are strictly non-edible collectibles.
Tons of chocolate were poured into the creation of this park. Since the sweet treat is not an easily-maintained building material, organizers have to keep the venue's temperature between 5 and 25 degrees Celsius, to prevent the items inside from cracking or melting.
