With Easter 2020 just over a week away it's time for another chocolate Worlds Record!
Why are these people smiling? They just spent $11,000 on a chocolate easter egg!
The most expensive non-jeweled chocolate egg sold at auction for an egg-travagant £7,000 ($11,107) and was created by William Curley, Amy Rose Curley, Alistair Birt, Sarah Frankland, Melissa Paul, Rhiann Mead (all UK) and Suzue Curley (Japan). It was sold at the Royal Courts of Justice, London, UK, on 20 March 2012.
The chocolate egg named the 'Golden speckled egg' was made with Amedei Chocolate and edible Gold leaf and filled with couture chocolate and truffles. The egg was decorated with 12 smaller chocolate eggs, 20 mini chocolate bars, and 5 white flowers, and took over three days to make. The egg was estimated to weigh over 50 kg (110.23 lbs) and was approximately 107 cm (3 ft 6.13 in) tall and 54 cm (1 ft 9.26 in) wide. The egg was sold in aid of The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt as part of World Record London.
