‘World’s Largest Lollipop’ Unwrapped Along With New Jolly Rancher Fruit Chew Lollipop at Taste of Chicago
Jolly Rancher has unveiled the World’s Largest Lollipop, certified by Guinness World Records, weighing in at a whopping 4,016 pounds and measures 62.8 inches in diameter (over 5 feet square) and 18.9 inches thick. The Jolly Rancher lollipop, an exact replica of the regular-sized Jolly Rancher cherry lollipop, breaks the previous record by over 1,000 pounds.
Jolly Rancher, a division of Hershey Foods Corporation, created the world’s largest lollipop to celebrate the launch of Jolly Rancher’s latest pop creation, Jolly Rancher Fruit Chew Lollipops — the only lollipops that deliver the big, bold flavors of Jolly Rancher with a chewy center.
“Guinness World Records is pleased to certify that Hershey holds the record for the world’s largest lollipop,” said Stuart Claxton, Research Manager, Guinness World Records. “This was a difficult record to break and is a great achievement by the Hershey team.”
Jolly Rancher Fruit Chew Lollipops feature the unique square, flat lollipop shape — in the bold flavors of watermelon, green apple, cherry and grape. The lollipops are available now in 10 oz. and 6.2 oz. assorted bags and individually.
Hershey Foods Corporation is the leading North American manufacturer of quality chocolate and non-chocolate confectionery and chocolate-related grocery products.
