Destruction of Chocolate Mayan Temple Replica
December 21, 2012 @ 12:00 AM
Lore has it that according to the Mayan calendar, the last day on Earth is December 21, 2012. How better to honor our final hours than with a “chocopalypse”? Irvine’s Qzina chocolatiers paid homage to the original cultivators of cacao by building a nine-ton candy model of a Mayan pyramid, which they plan to destroy on this day. That the structure won’t be edible makes for a bittersweet ending. More information.
