BAKU, June 23. /TASS/. A giant 215 kilogramme chocolate picture said to be the world's largest has become a highlight of a candy exhibition in Baku, venue of the first-ever European Games, organisers said on Tuesday.
"This is the world's largest chocolate painting and its makers have already sent an application to the Guinness Book of World Records," Andrei Lein told TASS.
The picture is decorated with the games mascots and symbols of Azerbaijan and its capital, Baku, including 25 chocolate pomegranates, Lein added.
He said some 15,000 people had already visited the exhibition, which opened two weeks before the games. Some visitors could hardly resist getting their teeth into the huge chocolate creation, he added, noting that most exhibits were securely displayed under glass.
The games close on June 28. The chocolate exhibition runs until the end of summer.
