A 537-kilogram kohuke - a cube of sweetened curds in a chocolate shell - was produced last week in an apparently successful attempt to break a Guinness world record.

The treat, invented by the Latvians in 1949, is a popular product that is largely unknown outside the Baltic region. It is made from milled curds and a chocolate glaze and fat content is around 20 percent.

Made by a Tõrva company Delibalt Production, the record-breaking curd snack initially weighed around 1,700 kilograms before glazing, but the chefs were both struggling to keep the curd base intact and transporting it to a second-floor ETV studio where the record bid was televised.

In the end, the team managed to create a 537-kilogram kohuke and it easily broke the record as the previously heaviest kohuke weighed just 50 grams. Those who were present partook of the rapidly melting kohuke and the record-breaking team promised to take the leftovers to a food bank.

Despite the recent election season, this kohuke contained no political overtones, although a consumer product released in 2005 before municipal elections, the "K kohuke," was seen as veiled advertising for the Center Party.
