What? I don't get it? Do people get to eat the statues then, or do the statues just sit there forever?

as very little chocolate made and sold in China contains cocoa solids, I guess it might be easy to make 'chocolate' Great Walls, etc that is more plastic-like than edible

Like the famous Chum Chocolate. That stuff is horrid and probably would never melt. You could probably built a boat out of it.

Yes, a lot of the chocolate sold in China isn't actually chocolate, and also many Chinese people don't like chocolate as a flavour - maybe in the same way many foreigners don't like very spicy food laden with chillis.

There are entire countries of foreigners that like spicy foods. Heck, all of south America for instance.

I've never met a Chinese person who didn't like Chocolate. Chocolate cake is the biggest seller for birthdays and chocolate is so popular that the McDonald's near me doesn't even sell vanilla ice cream anymore.
