Tasty tower

11 Comments

A 5.3-meter-tall replica of Tokyo Tower made with 8,000 Laduree chocolate macarons stands in the lobby of the ANA InterContinental Hotel in Tokyo. It is part of the hotel’s Chocolate Sensations event which runs until Dec 26. Highlighting the event is the world’s first Ruby Chocolate Afternoon Tea, featuring ruby chocolate — the world’s newest form of chocolate and the fourth variety of chocolate after dark, milk and white chocolate. Developed and created by Belgian-Swiss cocoa company Barry Callebaut in September 2017, it is sweet, slightly spicy and all natural. For the afternoon tea, over 4,500 kilograms of chocolate will be hand-crafted into 220 delicious items and available every day until Dec 26 in 11 of the hotel's restaurants bars. The Chocolate Sensations event also includes innovative workshops and seminars, staged by international bean to bar specialists, artisanal producers of fine chocolate as well as local curators of chocolate.

Why does it need a rope barrier around it? Does the hotel think its customers are going to start eating it?

Moderator: We were informed that the rope was put there because some guests did touch it.

Looks more like the Eifel Tower to me. Is it going to be advertising Citroen cars next?

Maybe they got their earthquake shock absorbers from the same place as the real one did...
