Take 5 Takes Down Snickers in Record-Setting Effort

The world's new largest chocolate bar weighs nearly 6,000 pounds.


On Jan. 16, Mars Wrigley set the record for world's largest chocolate nut bar with a massive Snickers.

Unveiled at the company's plant in Waco, Texas, the bar weighed 4,728 pounds — equal to about 41,000 regular Snickers bars. The bar combined 1,200 pounds of caramel, peanuts and nougat with 3,500 pounds of chocolate.

Two weeks later, Reese's revealed a 5,943-pound Take 5 bar at Hershey’s Chocolate World in Hershey, Pa.

It's 9 feet long, 5.5 feet wide, 2 feet high and the equivalent to about 63,000 Take 5 bars. Made in just five days, the Take 5 bar is a combination of pretzels, caramel, peanut butter and chocolate that broke the record by 1,215 pounds.

Guinness World Records guidelines state that all food-related records must be donated or consumed. As a result, both the Snickers and Take 5 will be cut up and shared with employees around the nation.
