Have you ever dreamed of finding incredibly delicious chocolate like Charlie did in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Then get out your compass and set your course for Armenia, a small country in southwestern Asia. The Grand Candy factory in the country's capital city of Yerevan recently set a Guinness World Record by creating the largest chocolate bar in the world.
Weighing 9,702 pounds, the chocolate bar is 224 inches long, 110 inches wide, and 10 inches thick. The ingredients are all natural, and the candy is 70 percent cocoa.
Factory owner Karen Vardanyan said they created the monstrous mass of chocolaty goodness to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the company.
Some lucky people can sample the chocolate bar on October 16. Grand Candy will be handing out chunks of the record-setting confection to the public for free on that day.
