There's something else big at the fair, and it's pretty sweet too.

In the Elwell Family Food Center, there's a life-size chocolate moose.

It's new to the state fair.  It was crafted by chocolatiers at Chocolaterie Stam.  Hundreds of pounds of Dutch chocolate were applied in layers and hand-carved.  In all, it took nine week to create the 850 pound moose.

The chocolate used is equal to more than 4,000 Stam chocolate bars.
