World's Largest Chocolate Weighs In At 6340 Pounds

New York, NY -- It's a chocoholic's dream come true: A chunk of dark chocolate that's taller than the average man and weighs 6340 pounds.

The Guinness-record-setting confection is also the largest Hershey's Kiss to every grace the planet, and it's being unveiled this morning (Jul. 31) in New York City.

Twenty-five engineers, scientists and chefs crafted the colossal foil-wrapped Kiss from 10-pound blocks of chocolate stacked 6.5 feet high.

"It's really an architectural and culinary masterpiece," a Hershey's spokesman says.

The big Kiss is equivalent to 639,000 regular-sized Hershey's Kisses and was built to launch a new line of dark chocolate Kisses.

But any sweet tooth eager to get their kisser on the king-sized chocolate is out of luck: Hershey says it's for display only, and will have a permanent home at Chocolate World in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
