Town’s sweet success

IT has been a sweet start to the year for Montilla.

The Cordoba town has won the world record for the longest bar of chocolate.

More than a hundred people took part in creating the 250 metre-long slab which breaks the previous world record held by Armenia.

The giant bar, made from 3,100 bars of different types of chocolate from a Jaen manufacturer, has now been broken up into 9,500 portions and sold off to raise money for the local Alzheimer’s residence centre and the residents of the San Rafael retirement home.

Interestingly, this is not the first time the parish association ‘El Dulce Nombre’ has broken a record.

It also holds the title for a 200 metre Roscon de Reyes and a giant 500 metre long sandwich filled with 180 kilos of ham.
