Worlds Biggest Chocolate Bar
Switzerland and Belgium may be the world’s most famous chocolate-making
countries, but tiny Armenia has just stolen some of their spotlight by creating
the largest chocolate bar, ever.
The sweet event took place in Armenia’s capital of Yerevan, and was organized by
the Grand Candy Factory – a local chocolate making company – as a way to
celebrate to celebrate its 10 years of existence. Guinness Book representatives
were invited to take part in the unveiling of the chocolate monster created, and
to make sure this event goes into the record books.
The giant chocolate bar weighs 4,400 kilograms, is 224 inches long, 110 inches
wide, 10 inches thick and is made from cocoa beans from Ghana. In the following
weeks, the world’s biggest chocolate down will be chipped into pieces and handed
out to freely around Yerevan. The previous record for the world’s biggest
chocolate bar was set in 2007, in Italy.
