World's Largest Lollipop Has Arrived

Today is National Lollipop Day. To celebrate, South San Francisco's See's Candies broke the sweetest world record of all.

See's Candies has produced a 7,000 pound chocolate lollipop that is likely to be deemed the largest lollipop in the world.

The massive candy, made with all the same ingredients as the South City company's signature lollipops, is being presented National Lollipop Day, July 20.

See's beats out Ashrita Furman, which held the previous Guiness World Record for largest lollipop with a 6,514-pound, 25-foot-long, 10-inches-thick candy on a stick in 2009. Jolly Rancher held a previous record with 4,016-pounds and nearly 19 inches thick.

To celebrate, See's will also be distributing free lollipops -- of regular sizes -- at store locations nationwide.

"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 lollipop."

The larger-than-life candy will be on display at Justin Herman Plaza today from 10am to 4pm.
