YEREVAN—First there was the oldest leather shoe and now there’s the world’s largest chocolate.
The Yerevan-based Grand Candy Co. unveiled a 9,702-pound chocolate bar Saturday.
Guinness World Record’s representative Elizabeth Smith presented the factory owner Karen Vardanyan with an official certificate during a ceremony Satuday. She said she was glad to witness what she described as an ‘incredible event’.
Vardanyan said that the chocolate bar was produced to mark the tenth anniversary of the company. The previous record was set in Italy in 2007.
The bar, containing cocoa beans from Ghana, is 224-inches long, 110-inches wide and 10-inches thick. It will be divided up and handed out to members of the public next month.
