- Celebrates Teachers Day with Sushila Devi and Avinash Sable, silver winners of the Commonwealth Games and their coach to honour their contribution towards their success
- Children from the Light of Life Trust assisted in creating the Longest Line of Chocolate Bars
National, 05 September 2022: Today, as the nation commemorated the architects of our future; our Teachers, Candyman Fantastik Chocobar XL sweetened the occasion by sharing this moment with Sushila Devi and Avinash Sable silver winners at the Commonwealth Games along with their coach who played an instrumental role in nurturing their talent making the nation proud on the global sporting platform.
Celebrating the event, Candyman Fantastik Chocobar XL achieves the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ for creating the Longest Line of Chocolate Bars crafted using 5130 Fantastik Chocobar XL bars. Co-created in assistance with school children from Light of Life Trust, the greeting card was an outsized but a simple heart-warming gesture paying a tribute to the nation builders.
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ for Longest Line of Chocolate Bars is a manifestation of the brand’s core tenet of bringing an Xtra Large Delight in everything. The activity was conceptualised to acknowledge the contribution and dedication of teachers across India. The on-ground event which took place at Bandra in Mumbai witnessed Sushila Devi, Avinash Sable and their coaches Jiwan Sharma and Jaiveer Singh reminiscing their years of hard work and training before their victory at the Commonwealth Games. The record was achieved within 4 to 6 hours with the help of 30 volunteers along with children from Light of Life Trust who dedicated this greeting card made with the longest line of Chocobars to their teachers. Upon the conclusion of the activity, the Fantastik XL Chocobars used in the activity were distributed among the children from Light of Life Trust.
Commenting on this launch and this initiative, Anuj Rustagi – Chief Operating Officer – Chocolates, Coffee and Confectionary, Foods Division, ITC Ltd, said, “Teachers are the beacons of knowledge and they shape us to become our successful and best individual versions. This Teacher's Day, there was no better way of showing our XL gratitude to our teachers than with a larger-than-life sized greeting card made with the World’s longest line of chocolate bars. We are really pleased to have set a new benchmark with this achievement. The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ for Longest Line of Chocolate Bars is our humble effort in celebrating the teaching fraternity of our country. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Sushila Devi, Avinash Sable and their coaches who graced this historic moment”.

Having faced many trials and tribulations along the way to achieve my goals, it was my coach who gave me the strength to stay strong and face all my battles.

I would like to congratulate Candyman Fantastik XL for honouring my coach and giving me a forum to again express my larger-than-life gratitude in an XL manner”
