LARGEST CHOCOLATE COIN

Tipping the scales at 658 kg (1,450 lb 10 oz), this colossal chocolate 1-Euro coin was presented at the cioccoshow fair in an event organized by the BF servizi SRL (ITA) in Bologna, Italy, on 15 Nov 2012 to mark Guinness World Record Day. The coin had a diameter of 1.96 m (6 ft 5.17 in) - more than the height of the average male adult - and was 17 cm (6.69 in) thick. The outsized confectionery took 22 hr to prepare, after which sculptors Stefano and Tommaso Comelli (both ITA) spent a further 12 hr carving it into shape.
