The 19th Salon du Chocolat in Paris, which was held this weekend at the city’s southwestern Porte de Versailles, is a mouthwatering event for both amateur chocolate lovers and aficionados. FRANCE 24 takes a look at some of the show’s highlights.

The 19th Salon du Chocolat in Paris is probably the closest one will ever come to realising their childhood dream of winning a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. This year’s trade show, which covers more than 20,000 square metres of exhibition space, is filled with chocolate in all its forms – sculpted into statues, gushing from fountains or whipped into an ethereal mousse.

With an estimated 250 exhibitors taking part in the show from around the world, this year’s edition at the French capital’s southwestern Parc des Expositions at Porte de Versailles is the largest one yet, and has already drawn huge crowds of both amateur chocolate lovers and connoisseurs.

Here’s a glimpse at some of the delicious highlights of the Salon du Chocolat:
