The pictures of a 12,000-pound chocolate bar setting Guinness World Record, Gadhafi house, Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes, Vera Wang Spring 2012, and heavy monsoon rain in Pakistan are the most outstanding news on September 13, 2011.


A new Guinness world record has just been set by a 12,290 pound chocolate bar made by the Worlds Finest Chocolate Company on September 13, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. The giant chocolate bar with nearly 3 feet high and 21 feet long broke the previous record chocolate bar by more than a ton. World's Finest Chocolate will feature the record-breaking bar in a nationwide tour of schools in which the enormous chocolate bar will be part of a portion-control education campaign called "Think Big. Eat Smart". Eddie Opler, chief executive officer of World's Finest Chocolate said: "We purposely made this bar to be an example of 'portion distortion. We're committed to educating families about eating right and staying active and doing it in a fun and engaging way."


The record-breaking chocolate bar includes 1,200 pounds of almonds, 5,500 pounds of sugar, 2,000 pounds of milk powder, 1,700 pounds of cocoa butter and 1,400 pounds of chocolate liquor.
