Editor's Pick

It took fifty people to create the world's biggest chocolate bar, unveiled today by UK chocolate retailer Thorntons in celebration of its centenary.

Weighing 12,770lbs and measuring four meters (13ft) square, the giant slab of milk chocolate (made to the standard Thorntons recipe) was unwrapped at the company's headquarters and officially broke the Guinness World Record for the world's largest chocolate bar. The bar took ten hours to make, plus a three day cooling period. It will not be wasted, but instead broken up with axes and given to Thorntons' staff and customers in stores, raising money for charities.
