Having looked at records concerning tea and coffee, I feel it would be remiss not to include chocolate, so in the interests of equality here are a few choice world records that have the cocoa bean at their heart:

  • The largest cup of hot chocolate was made earlier this year on the 21st January. It was made for the Festival of Chocolate, by those belonging to the group and also the Museum of Science in Industry, in Tampa, Florida. Using 39,462 g of powdered milk, 502,584 g of cocoa and 3,331 l of water, they made a 3,331 litre cup of hot chocolate.

  • The largest chocolate Easter egg was made by Tosca in Italy and presented on 16 April 2011. Weighing in at 7,200 kg, it measured 34ft tall with a 64ft circumference at the widest point.

  • The most expensive chocolate easter egg (non jewelled, Mr Fabergé) was sold at auction for £7,000 at the Royal Courts of Justice in London on 20 March 2012, in aid of the The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt. Named the 'Golden speckled egg', the chocolate egg had such features as edible gold leaf, a filling of couture chocolate and truffles, along with further decorations including 12 smaller chocolate eggs and 20 mini chocolate bars.

  • The tallest chocolate sculpture was created by the Patrick Roger group in Sceaux, France on 1 December 2010. Weighing in at 4,00kg, the chocolate Christmas tree measured 10 metres tall.

  • The longest chocolate bar was made in a joint effort between Mirco Della Vecchia, Renato Zoia and Giuseppe Sartori in Bologna, Italy on 16 November 2011. The bar measured 15.9m long and 2.03m wide.
