beans have been used throughout history.

With Shanghai’s tastiest annual event in full swing, the East Asia Exhibition Hall has been transformed into a world of chocolate. This year’s show features plenty of chocolate sculptures and a look at how cocoa beans have been used throughout history.

After walking into a fairy tale book and past a hall of mirrors, visitors are treated to a number of delicate displays, all made from chocolate. Ten lucky children had the chance to visit the wonderland yesterday afternoon.

Jin Jing, from Shanghai said, "I like Chocolate Wonderland, so I want to come here to play."

There are chocolate makers on site in the 4,500-square-meter exhibition center, creating show pieces as visitors watch, and teaching them a little about the history of chocolate.
