Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates? Salon du Chocolat

Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates? Salon du Chocolat

There are many philosophies on life, none quite so humble and effortless as the famous “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.” spoken by Tom Hanks in the 1994 movie Forrest Gump, written by Winston Groom and Eric Roth. The belief that “life is like a box of chocolates” was more literally interpreted, also in 1994, with the introduction of Salon du Chocolat. Translated from French to mean “Salon of Chocolate,” Salon du Chocolat is a five-day long, annual, international chocolate themed trade show. Previously held in Paris, New York, Tokyo, Moscow, and Beijing, this year’s festival was hosted in Shanghai, China. There are many aspects of the show for tourists and visitors to enjoy. This year’s edition featured more than 400 participants including: exhibitors, cocoa producers, international chocolatiers and master chiefs and of course, the chocolate dress parade.

The Experience

There’s something kind of wonderful about chocolate that brings sugary treats and the creative arts together. The Salon du Chocolat has more sweets than you can even imagine under one roof. Long tables gridded with bit-sized gourmet chocolate creations draw a large crowd. Each chocolate individually decorated and eagerly waiting to be placed inside chocolate gift boxes. Innovation is the motive for every exhibit: a chocolate sculpture of a woman kneeling upon a pile of cocoa beans, chocolate bars in every flavor imaginable and a seemingly never-ending rainbow of macaroons. An array of chocolate-theme recipe books were available and fresh produce to accompany the diverse flavors of chocolate variety.

No choco-holic was leaving without a bundle of unique, contemporary chocolate gift boxes. Nearing the end of October, the Salon du Chocolat is definitely the place to be.

Chocolate Fashion Show

Arguably the most breath-taking element to the event is the chocolate fashion show. Some edible items from the show included: a larger-than-life hoop skirt dress made out of chocolate, a model strutting down the cat walk inside a human-sized chocolate bird cage and in the New York show, a New Years themed outfit was shown off, chocolate top hat and all. Martin Howard, a chocolate themed fashion pro recalls, “Last year, for the 70th anniversary of ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ I made a big Wicked Witch hat out of chocolate and Dorothy’s ruby slippers out of white chocolate. We also used white chocolate to make a yellow brick road background and to reconstruct Emerald City. Another year I made a Bat-girl dress and giant wings out of chocolate for a model. Then I made chocolate guns for other models posing as villains. That was a true performance piece.”

Chocolate lover or not, anyone would enjoy this very unique, feel-good festival Allowing the world to find a common bond in chocolate is just delightful. And while the interpretation of “life is like a box of chocolates” takes a more literal stance at the Salon du Chocolat, it feels more like falling into a great, big chocolate gift boxes and never wanting to come out.

Chocolate Museum Barcelona

Chocolate Museum Barcelona

Barcelona offers its visitors the possibility of knowing much more about the cocoa temptation!

Are you a sweet-toothed person? If so, the Chocolate Museum Barcelona – Museu de la Xocolata in Catalan – is the perfect place for you. This museum tells you everything about chocolate. It is a private museum which was opened in Barcelona in 2000, at Carrer Comerç 36. It is in the neighborhood of El Born, on the ground level of an old barracks and very near the Zoo of Barcelona.

The museum aims to develop a project to prove that chocolate is much more than a delicious snack. Since ancient times, chocolate has had a very important role in human history and it is a highly prized good. It has been the sweetest gold which men have used as a bargaining chip and the sweetest addiction of any human being.

The Chocolate Museum Barcelona is divided into different rooms which are dedicated to all aspects related to chocolate. The museum gives its visitor the chance to go back to the origins of chocolate and its later arrival in Europe. It also informs about the myth of chocolate, its aphrodisiac and medicinal properties and its nutritional value. Special attention is paid to Easter eggs and the typical Catalan chocolate craft Monas, originally created in Barcelona, which godparents give away on Easter Monday.

Furthermore, the museum offers a wide range of workshops in which children are the special guests and can learn how to work with chocolate and become expert patissiers. There are special activities for all the family, too.

Visitors are also invited to take part in all kinds of cultural activities which take place in the Barcelona Chamber, including concerts of classical music and theater. You can also learn about chocolate-making machines from old Catalan factories, as there is a room focused on that.

Since the opening of the museum, it has housed iconic pieces of chocolate. The many displays of chocolate sculptures include various well-known Barcelona buildings, famous characters and illustrations from various stories. For example, the statues of Ben-Hur, the Sagrada Familia by Gaudi and the cute albino gorilla, Floquet de Neu.

What is more, have you ever dreamed of celebrating your birthday surrounded by a chocolate environment? The Chocolate Museum Barcelona makes your wish come true. You can invite your friends to an original chocolate party in the museum! For further information, visit the Chocolate Museum Barcelona website.
