World's Largest Chocolate Bar
Armenian company Grand Candy yesterday unveiled the world's largest-ever chocolate bar -- a 25-centimetre-thick slab weighing in at 4410 kilograms and measuring 5.60 metres by 2.75 metres.
In a televised ceremony, representatives of Guinness World Records measured the dark chocolate bar and handed a document to company managers certifying it as the new record-holder.
Grand Candy CEO Karen Vardanian told journalists the bar was produced in honour of the company's 10th anniversary.
The record was previously held by a chocolate bar produced in Italy in October 2007 that weighed 3580 kilograms (7890 pounds).
