The Armenian Company Grand Candy broke the Guinness World Record for the biggest chocolate bar by making a bar weighing 4,410 kg. On September 11, on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, the company held a presentation ceremony. The bar, 5600x2750x250 millimeters, was made in four days using cocoa beans imported from Africa, Grand Candy President Karen Vardanyan said at the ceremony. The legal representative of the Guinness Book of World Records Elizabeth Smith arrived in Armenia to issue a certificate to the company.
Bardanyan pointed out that this is the first officially registered Guinness record in industry in Armenia over the last 20 years. According to the Guinness terms, the bar is 70% made from natural primary products – 500kg of cocoa beans and 300kg of powdered sugar. The record-setter bar will be kept in special conditions. Karen Vardanyan invited everyone to participate in a chocolate tasting event in Republic Square on October 16.
He said that an average consumer will take 450 years to eat such a bar.
Elizabeth Smith, who attended the ceremony, said this is the most impressive record she has ever seen. She congratulated Armenia, as well as the Grand Candy Company, for this achievement.
The previous Guinness record is a 3,580-kg chocolate bar made in Italy in 2007.
