While we thoroughly enjoy anything sweet, there is something about biting into and egg shaped chocolate that defines Easter morning. But can you imagine biting into a 34 foot 1.05 inch tall Easter egg that happens to be in your basket?
One chocolatier in Italy could! It was measured at Le Acciaierie Shopping Centre, in Cortenuova, Italy April 16, 2011, and is the world’s tallest chocolate Easter egg created by one person on record to date.
The chocolate Easter egg weighed 15,873 pounds and had a circumference of 19.6 m (64 ft 3.65 in) at its widest point. With an impressive size and girth we can’t help wondering — how big was the chocolate Easter hen that gave birth to this monstrosity!
That is a whole lotta’ Easter chocolate!
