UK News | Published:

The model was fashioned at Cadbury World in Bournville, Birmingham.

Chocolatiers at Cadbury World have celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1969 lunar landing by creating a space scene depicting Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon.

The model was fashioned at Bournville, Birmingham, using the equivalent of 400 standard bars of Dairy Milk, and is set to go on display at the city’s Thinktank science museum.

Solid white chocolate was carved to resemble Armstrong’s spacesuit, while his gloves, life support system and boots were made using melted chocolate.

“The rivets, things like that, just the various nuts and bolts… we have tried to make it look as authentic as we can.”
