YEREVAN — It is a chocolate lover's dream. Armenian company Grand Candy on Saturday unveiled the world's largest-ever chocolate bar -- a 25-centimetre-thick (10-inch-thick) slab weighing in at 4,410 kilograms (9,720 pounds) and measuring 5.60 metres (18.4 feet) by 2.75 metres (nine feet).
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 weighted 3,580 kilograms (7,890 pounds).
