World’s Largest Chocolate Coin

The Carphone Warehouse has set a Guinness World Record for the world’s biggest chocolate coin.

To celebrate the launch of their Christmas gift cards, the mobile telephone retailer built a coin weighing 276kg, enough to be the equivalent of 5,081 bars.

Getting the wrapper off this thing would be by first issue. hmmmm

Unveiled in London’s Westfield in Shepherd’s Bush, it took ten workers and 80 hours to complete.

Carphone Warehouse’s UK managing director Matt Stringer said: “Chocolate coins are traditional stocking fillers.

“But I don’t think we’d find a stocking big enough to fit our record breaking coin! 

“It’s pretty incredible to see a chocolate coin this huge, so much so that Guinness World Records opened up a new category for us.”
