How Much Does the World’s Largest Chocolate Lobster Weigh?
People love lobster and people love chocolate, so a company in Maine has decided to try and break a record by combining the two.
Haven's Candies is located in Westbrook and their slogan is "Maine's Finest Chocolates". As NECN reports, they have created a 418 pound chocolate lobster that they have dubbed "Shelby" in the hopes of breaking a Gunness world record with it. Shelby is on display and at various locations throughout the state this fall.
By comparison, the largest live lobster ever caught weighed it at just 44 pounds in 2005 according to National Geographic. On the chocolate side of things, The Guinness Book of World Records has documented a chocolate bar made in 2011 that weighed 12,770 pounds. So, I guess Shelby kind of meets them both in the middle.
