Soon we make a stop at a standard looking confectionary store next to the Cornerstone Baptist Church and across the highway from the gas station. Among the great assortment of chocolates and moose-themed tchotchkes (we’re in Maine, moose country) is Lenny, the featured attraction. Lenny is a moose, a 1700-pound moose. Lenny is made of chocolate. Chocolate! Seventeen hundred pounds of chocolate! Lenny is standing in a dry pool with beach balls accompanied by mama Maine black bear Libby and her two Maine black bear cubs. The bears are made of chocolate too. Libby weighs in at 380 pounds and her two bear cubs Cocoa and Chip weigh 80 pounds each. Chocolate.
I have died and come back to life in Heaven.
Lenny the Chocolate Moose, who weighs more than most flesh and blood moose, lives in Scarborough, Maine, at Len Libby Candies on US Highway 1. Once you walk in the door, you can’t miss him.
