Biggest Chocolate Bar Ever

September 14, 2011

World's Finest Chocolate, a company from Chicago, has set the record for the largest chocolate bar ever created. Their record-breaking creation weighs 12,190 pounds. 

According to their website, the chocolate bar contains 1,200 pounds of almonds, 5,500 pounds of sugar, 2,000 pounds of milk powder, 1,700 pounds of cocoa butter and 1,400 pounds of chocolate liquor. With an average serving of chocolate of 25 grams, the bar could feed 209,350 people— the entire population of San Bernardino, California or Augusta, Georgia. 

Ironically, the bar is being used as the basis for a healthy eating campaign. World's Finest Chocolate launched a campaign called "Think Big, Eat Small," designed to promote exercise and small portions. There's even a song and dance to accompany the initiative (starting around the 6:30 mark).

What do you think of using a chocolate bar as part of a healthy eating campaign?
