Forest Gump once said “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna to get.”

Well, if you get to the World’s Longest Box of Chocolate event on the Detroit riverfront on October 14 you’re going to have a lot of choices. The 313-foot-long box of chocolate crafted by Hamtramck chocolatier Bon Bon Bon contains 2,600 pieces.

The event runs from 5:00-7:30 p.m. and is sponsored by GM RenCen. You’ll get a chance to mingle, taste fabulous Detroit-themed chocolates, grab a great drink Detroit’s beautiful riverfront.

If you’re a woman you know chocolate is a food group and you might very well use author Terry Moore’s 12-step chocolate program … NEVER BE MORE THAN 12 STEPS AWAY FROM CHOCOLATE. So stay close to that big box.
