See’s Candies Breaks Guinness World Record For Largest Lollypop
The Guinness World Record for The World’s Largest Lollypop has been broken by See’s Candies. Guinness World Records adjudicator Amanda Mochan declared this new record at the See’s Lollypop Factory in Burlingame, Calif., on Wednesday. The award winning 7,000-pound chocolate lollypop will be on display at Justin Herman Plaza (One Market St. in San Francisco) from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, July 20, in honor of National Lollypop Day. The lollypop will be on display for a second time on July 29 at AT&T Park in the Seals Plaza (Marine Gate) during a San Francisco Giants—L.A. Dodgers game.
“We are so pleased to have created a larger-than-life version of our favorite candy-on-a-stick,” says See’s Candies CEO Brad Kinstler. “This accomplishment is a testament to our extraordinary production team, who spent many hours designing and constructing the world’s largest lollypop. We can’t wait to showcase this record-breaking lollypop on National Lollypop Day to our customers in San Francisco.”
In addition to creating the world’s largest lollypop, See’s Candies is celebrating National Lollypop Day by giving away its famous Gourmet Lollypops at more than 200 retail shop locations across the U.S.
