A French chocolate sculptor celebrated the 30th anni Saturday of the opening of the Berlin Wall by taking a hammer to a chocolate replica of the infamous barrier, distributing the sweet chunks to applauding bystanders at his shop in Paris,
Patrick Roger said it felt “amazing to share the taste, the values and a certain wind of liberty.”
Just as Berliners smashed chunks out of the concrete wall, Roger and an assistant attacked the replica with gusto, quickly smashing a hole with their hammers.
Made with 200 kilos (440 lbs) of chocolate, the wall scrawled with the words “freedom” and, in German, “I am a Berliner!” was then brought crashing down onto the pavement in front of Roger’s chocolate store in Paris, shattering into hundreds of pieces.
Have a terrific weekend
