Like any true chocoholic, I believe that you can never have too much chocolate. Solid, nutty, cream-filled, fruit-filled, peanut butter, or mint – there’s always room for more! However, I think even I would have trouble finishing Hershey’s latest chocolate creation. To commemorate 100 years of chocolatey goodness, Hershey unveiled “The World’s Largest Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate” on July 7th.

Standing at 12 feet tall, the giant chocolate weighs in at an astounding 30,540 pounds! That, my friends, is a lot of chocolate. This far surpasses the previous largest chocolate record of 15,026 pounds. The Kiss features a seven-foot-long plume reading “100 Years of Kisses”, and is covered in 16,460 feet of foil wrapping to create the traditional look of a Hershey’s Kiss.

It took 152 people nine days to construct the Kiss, which debuted as part of Hershey’s birthday celebration at Hershey’s Chocolate World in Pennsylvania. In case any of you doubt the record-breaking status of this chocolate gargantuan, the Guinness Book of World Records has certified this Kiss as “The World’s Largest Piece of Chocolate.” Take that, Nestlé and Mars!

If you want to get an up close and personal look at “The World’s Largest Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate” in person, you better hurry. It’s only slated to be on display at Hershey Park’s Chocolate World until July 12th! However, if you can’t make it to Pennsylvania to take part in all of the centennial festivities, don’t despair. If the above video was too fast for you, Hershey has provided a slideshow of the making of the Giant Kiss that shows it a bit slower.
