Yes, You'll Find Moose in Maine - But How About One Made of 1,700 Pounds of Chocolate?

Any trip to Maine has to include spotting a moose.  Wild Moose, of course, but how about a 1700-pound chocolate moose?

 

When in Maine be sure to stop in Scarborough, near Portland, Maine, where there is a very special moose. At Len Libby Handmade Candies meet the world’s sweetest moose, Lenny, made from 1700 pounds of chocolate.  Lenny was sculpted on site in four weeks and unveiled in 1997.  He proudly stands in a “pool” of tinted white chocolate complete with lily pads and frogs.  All chocolate, of course! 

 

When Len Libby first opened for business in 1926 and has been making delectable chocolates and other sweet ever since.  Try their Moose Tracks made with milk chocolate, cranberries, pretzels and peanuts drizzled with our Signature Chocolate.

 

Did you know that moose the largest antlered animals in North America. Their head and body length reach 10 feet, shoulder height to 6.5 feet with antlers reaching 6 feet across and weigh up to 90 lbs. A large bull moose can weigh up to 1800 lbs. No visit to Maine is complete without seeing a moose.  You are guarantee to see a moose of the sweetest kind if you visit Len Libby.
