Replica of the Burj Khalifa will go on display for two weeks as part of UAE National Day celebrations
Dubai's Burj Khalifa is the world's tallest building, so it is only right that a 44.2 feet replica of of it has claimed the title of the world's largest structure made of chocolate.
The chocolate replica tower, a creation of the master chocolatier Andrew Farrugia, was unveiled at Dubai International Airport on Sunday as part of celebrations for the 43rd UAE National Day.
The structure is made up of 4,200 kilogrammes of Belgian chocolate, took a team 1,050 hours to complete the tower and will be on display for two weeks, Emirates 24/7 website reported.
“Dubai is known all over the world for superlatives – the city is home to some of the world’s tallest buildings apart from Burj Khalifa; one of the world’s top two busiest international airports, one of the world’s largest seaports, largest shopping malls and a number of other world firsts. We thought it was a great idea to celebrate the National Day with a record breaking feat that travellers passing through Dubai International would be able to appreciate,” said Anita Mehra, Vice President of Communications & Business Development.
