Chocolate Eiffel Tower Melting During Record Paris Heat Wave
A chocolate Eiffel Tower was melted into pudding in just 10 minutes in the Paris sun as the French capital hit 39 degrees Celsius (102 Fahrenheit), Wednesday, July 24. The French weather forecasters have predicted temperatures are going to reach new records later in the week. Tourists have flocked to the Trocadero fountains at the foot of the non-edible Eiffel Tower to beat the heat. Fortunately, the heat wave is expected to come to a stormy conclusion as early as Friday.
