CHOCOLATE REIGN
DailyFeed
The Grand Candy Factory in Yerevan, Armenia, has produced the world's biggest chocolate bar, weighing in at 9,702 pounds, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Take a look at the raw video of the bar's unveiling and Guinness certification, provided by the Associated Press -- it may very well be one of the most thrilling, inspiring examples of the triumph of the human spirit you will see all year:



Armenia is not the only country that takes gigantic servings of food seriously.

In January, an Israeli cooking squad filled a 6.5-yard satellite dish borrowed from a local television station with 9,017 pounds of hummus, which set a new Guinness World Record, doubling the previous record set by a Lebanese team four months earlier, which had broken an earlier record held by Israel.

Lebanon fought back in May with a 22,994-pound serving of hummus, confirmed by a Guinness representative on the scene.

A day later, Lebanon took the competition to another level entirely, bagging the world falafel record with a single 5-ton serving.

Completing the hat trick, Lebanon also holds the world record for the largest plate of tabbouleh, weighing in at 7,825 pounds.

No word yet on whether Armenia intends to add to its ever-swelling national pride with the world's biggest helping of bozbash, kchuch, or boraki.
