A group of Belgian chocolate makers headed by Andrew Farrugia, originally from Malta, has created the world’s longest chocolate train.
Next call will be the Guinness book of records for the train. The idea is to boost the country’s superb chocolate industry.
The 110-foot long chocolate sculpture shows a steam locomotive hauling several carriages. The sculpture used 2,755 pounds of chocolate and took 784 hours to complete.
Says Mr Farrugia, ‘I had this idea for a while, and I said what do you think if we do this realisation of a long chocolate train, you know, because a train you can make it as long as you like… Actually it was going to be much smaller than it was, but I kept on adding another wagon, and another wagon, and it’s the size it is today.’
