Here at CIMA Confections, we have lollipops on the brain! We are constantly thinking about new flavors, colors, and shapes to try. We have also thought about the size of the lollipop and if anyone has ever broken with conventions and made a giant version. It turns out they have!
In 2012, See’s Candy decided to celebrate National Lollipop Day in a big way; by creating a 7,003-pound version of their chocolate lollipop! Deemed the World’s Largest Lollipop by Guinness World Records, this enormous creation was 5 feet 11 inches tall. See how they did it below:
This larger-than-life treat was displayed at Justin Herman Plaza on July 20, 2012, and AT&T Park on July 29, 2012. It defeated the previous world record, a 6,514-pound lollipop created by Ashrita Furman, by almost 500 pounds. Furman has set more than 500 Guinness World Records in his lifetime, with more than 200 of them still standing!
“Largest Lollipop” isn’t the only Guinness World Record related to our favorite treat. There is also a record for the longest chain of people licking lollipops! The event was organized in Spain in September of 2008, with Fiesta Company providing the 12,831 lollipops distributed.
