The ARIA Resort and Casino is celebrating the home NFL team with a chocolate showcase of the Las Vegas Raiders. The showcase features Raiders players and Allegiant Stadium.

And one Raiders star got the opportunity to meet the life-size chocolate version of himself, which certainly had to be an interesting encounter.

Las Vegas tight end Darren Waller got an up close look at the Darren Waller chocolate statue. The statue features 80 pounds of chocolate and 40 pounds of fondant.

The chocolate will remain on display throughout the 2021 NFL season at the ARIA Patisserie , while the real-life version of Waller is likely putting up huge numbers for the Raiders.

Waller had 107 receptions, 1,196 yards, and nine touchdowns for the Raiders in a fantastic 2020 season. And there’s no reason to think he won’t put up similar production in 2021.
