The World’s Largest Chocolate Bar
12,000 pounds of chocolate. No, that’s not the name of Albert Haynesworth’s biography. It’s actually the size of the world’s largest chocolate bar, made by Chicago’s World’s Finest Chocolate for the sole purpose of – hold on to your monocles – teaching children about nutrition.
Eddie Opler, CEO of World’s Finest Chocolate, said: “We purposely made this bar to be an example of “portion distortion.’”
He added: “We’re committed to educating families about eating right and staying active and doing it in a fun and engaging way.”
The candy bar will be showcased at schools throughout the U.S. as part of the “Thing Big, Eat Smart” tour and I can only imagine that the method of using this thing to make kids not want to overeat will be to sit them all in front of it and electrocute the bejesus out of them. And as I sit here eating Skittles out of a football candy dispenser on my desk, I say go for it.
