World's largest chocolate bar sold off in chunks for charity

AT least 100 people in Montilla (Córdoba) have created the world's largest-ever bar of chocolate, measuring 250 metres (around 1,084 feet) in length and 25 centimetres (10 inches) wide

The huge slab of chocolate, which currently lies along the length of the Avenida de Boucau crossroads as far as the C/ Puerta de Aguilar, will be broken up into 9,500 portions and sold off.

All proceeds will go to the local Alzheimer's care home and a nursing home for the elderly, with a slice of the funds being used to restore the image of Christ at the parish church.

The chocolate bar, made by members of the local charity El Dulce Nombre – led by José Luis Baños – has been created using 2,600 bars of milk chocolate, 400 bars of white chocolate and 100 bars of dark chocolate.

It is decorated with various types of sweets, including Easter eggs and chocolate statues, and all the ingredients were supplied by the Jaén-based confectionery firm, Doña Jimena.

This is not the first time El Dulce Nombre has attempted to enter the Guinness Book of Records with giant food creations – in 2009 they managed this with the largest-ever roscón de reyes, the typical Epiphany cake, which measured 200 metres in length, and last year they made a colossal sandwich of 500 metres in length containing 180 kilos of ham.

The current world record for the biggest chocolate bar is held by Erevan, the capital of Armenia, which was made in 2010 and weighed over four tonnes.
