What's the best way to teach children that they must eat sensibly in order to avoid obesity and health issues? Well, if you're a Chicago-based food company, it's to create the world's largest chocolate bar.

The 12,000lb, 21ft bar aims to educate children about "portion distortion" and is being toured around the country to various schools by the World's Finest Chocolate company.

The mammoth creation contains 1,200 pounds of almonds, 5,500 pounds of sugar, 2,000 pounds of milk powder, 1,700 pounds of cocoa butter and 1,400 pounds of chocolate liquor. It can provide 209,000 1-ounce servings but won't be offered up as food as it's like a lesson yeah?

If it was a Cadbury's bar, it would contain around 12.6 million calories. It's already secured the Guinness World Record for the world's largest chocolate bar but chocolate is bad, remember? Stop drooling back there.
