Yerevan - Anyone looking for huge amounts of free chocolate should book a flight to Armenia's capital next month.

That's when the world's largest chocolate bar will be up for grabs in Yerevan's main square. The Guinness Book of World Records certified the 4 410kg chocolate bar at a ceremony on Saturday.
