Qzina Specialty Foods in Irvine, California, recently celebrated its thirtieth anniversary by creating the world's largest chocolate sculpture. The sculpture models an ancient Mayan temple and weighs 18,239 pounds, breaking the previous Guinness World Record set in Italy in 2010.
The company chose its Mayan theme based on the culture's role in the origins of chocolate. Mayans were one of the first civilizations to cultivate Cacao trees and understand the potential of the cocoa bean.
