London: World’s Finest Chocolate has broken the Guinness World Record for the largest chocolate bar to teach children about “proportion distortion” and eating right.

The Chicago-based candymaker, known for selling chocolate fundraising products, will feature the candy bar on a tour of schools dubbed “Think Big. Eat Smart”.

“We purposely made this bar to be an example of "portion distortion,” the Daily Mail quoted Eddie Opler, CEO of World``s Finest Chocolate, as saying.

“We’re committed to educating families about eating right and staying active and doing it in a fun and engaging way,” he stated.

According to a news agency, the chocolate bar, which will provide 209,000 1-ounce servings is made of 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.
