Armenia: Take a Bite of World's Largest Chocolate Bar

Chocolate lovers around the world are invited to Armenia to take a bite of the world's largest chocolate bar.

The 4,410-kilogram dark chocolate treat will be offered up to the public on October 16.

The Guinness Book of World Records certified the giant bar as the world's largest in a ceremony in Yerevan over the weekend.

Made by the Grand Candy factory, the massive chocolate is 70 percent cocoa mass and was made from all natural ingredients using cocoa beans from Ghana.

It is more than 5.5 meters long, 2.7 meters wide and 25 centimeters thick.

The previous record was for a 3,587-kilogram chocolate bar made by Elah Dufour-Novi in Alessandria, Piemonte, Italy, in October 2007.
