Founded in 1921 See’s Candies is one of the most popular sweet and chewables producer in America. Now, their candies are sold in over two hundred shops throughout the West. The most popular product of Sees are Root Beer Lollypops, Summer Berries, and many more.
On July 20, 2012, See’s declared a “National Lollipop Day”, and along with the celebration, they unveiled the “World’s Largest Lollipop”, which is a record breaking.
The company created a 7,0003 pound chocolate-favored lollipop, this is thrice heavier than a 5 seater car. The candy measures 6-feet tall, and 3-feet and 6-inches wide. This also features a 10-foot stick, but not included in the count. The candy was so big that it requires machinery to lift and transport it.
The lollipop was made in the company’s factory in Burlingame, California before being displayed in San Francisco on July 20.
The Guiness Book of World Record adjudicator, Amanda Mochan earlier declared the record for the “World’s Largest Lollipop”, on July 18. The Guiness website said:
The largest lollipop was 3176.5 kg (7,003 lb), and was created by See’s Candies (USA) at See’s Candies Lollypop Factory in Burlingame, California, USA, on 18 July 2012.
The lollipop was chocolate-flavored and had the following measurements: 4 feet 8.75 inches in length, 3 feet 6 inches in width, and 5 feet 11 inches in height. The lollipop also included a stick which was 11 feet 10 inches tall, though the weight of the stick did not count towards the record.
The previous record for this was held by Jolly Rancher featuring a lollipop with 4,016 pounds was now broken. The record was held for more than ten years.
Although the new world record was chocolate, the See’s,in celebration also makes three more flavors vanilla, cafe latte and butterscotch, the best-seller. Root beer, a seasonal flavor, is in shops for summertime only. So, grab one now, before the supplies last.
This lollipop will be displayed at the Lefty O’Doul Plaza outside of AT&T Park on Sunday, July 29th.
Now I know, there is something in your mind. How will the huge chocolate lollipop be consumed? According to the See’s folks, the chocolate will be recycled in time to make smaller pieces.
