The idea of constructing the World's Largest Chocolate Heart stems from the planning sessions between Conrad Bangkok and All Seasons Place to make this Valentine's Day stand out like no other place in Bangkok! Made of edible chocolate, the total weight of chocolate used in constructing the heart is 1100 kilograms. Only the highest grade of quality chocolate was the main ingredient, consisting of 72% cocoa content, made form cocoa beans from Trinidad, Tobago and Maraca Ibo, Venezuela.
