Stuff that Weighs More than Me: Now THAT'S a Valentine
I know that after all the chocolate and other Valentine's Day goodies I consumed, I feel a little like the heaviest object in the world. However, if you want to talk about a heavy heart, this valentine takes the cake. The world's largest chocolate Valentine's Day heart was constructed by Executive Pastry Chef Conrad Pfaff for Conrad Hotels in Bangkok, Thailand. Here come the stats:
Height: Over 15 feet
Width: Over 15 feet.
Construction Time: 21 days (with 8 chefs working around the clock)
Total weight of chocolate used in creating the heart: over 2400 lbs.
Finished Weight: Over 2000 lbs.
Conclusion: The biggest chocolate Valentine's Day heart weighs more than me.
