Scarborough, Maine: Lenny the Chocolate Moose
What’s 8 feet tall, weighs more than 1,700 pounds, has dark brown glossy skin, and tastes like a Nestle’s Crunch bar? If you’ve stopped into Len Libby Candies in Scarborough, you know it’s Lenny, the Chocolate Moose.
Thought to be the world’s largest chocolate animal of any kind, Lenny was sculpted in 1997 by plastering melted milk chocolate over a chicken-wire frame.
Why doesn’t Lenny melt? Len Libby’s is also an ice cream parlor with a carefully monitored below-70-degree store environment.
Is it OK to break off pieces of Lenny just to take a taste? Absolutely not.
