Mt. Rushmore in chocolate.

Mount Rushmore Made of Chocolate

Field review by the editors.

Orlando, Florida

Opening a chocolate museum in Florida takes guts: one power failure from a thunderstorm or hurricane and all of your exhibits melt. It may make sense to visit this place, which opened in late 2013, sooner rather than later.

Visitors are led on a guided tour through a simulated South American rainforest (where the cacao bean was discovered) and into a mini-chocolate factory, where they're put into an appropriate chocolate-craving frame of mind for the museum's cafe and gift shop. The highlight of the tour is its gallery of over 25 world landmarks -- including Mount Rushmore, the Great Wall of China, Big Ben, Mad King Ludwig's Castle, and the Statue of Liberty -- all sculpted from solid chocolate, each weighing hundreds of pounds (The Taj Mahal is made of white chocolate). There's a life-size chocolate head of Andy Warhol, too.
