“The World’s Largest Gummy Bear (That You

The Hershey company is sorry but not sorry. Proving its competitive spirit before the Super Bowl, the company on Friday January 31 broke a Guinness World Record established two weeks ago by competitor Mars Wrigley.

It’s now official, Hershey’s claims the largest dark-chocolate bar in the world, a Reese’s Take 5, weighing more than 5,943 pounds. fanfare as a rallying cry. “Are we ready to start this party,” called Anna Lingeris, Hershey’s senior manager of communications and a Reese’s brand ambassador. the world’s largest confection chocolate, the group erupted in applause and applause. With that, “We are the champions” the Queen repeated in the room.

Earlier this month, Mars took the Guinness title for the largest dark chocolate bar weighing more than two tons. “It’s in the spirit of competition.

We saw them do it and we’re like, ‘Hey, we have a chocolate and nut bar that tastes better,'” said Kaylee Dugan, Hershey’s spokeswoman.

Mars said he was using the bar to promote a Super Bowl commercial. The “Fix the World” commercial is a parody of the old hippie Coke Classic ad and shows an oversized Snickers being lowered into a hole in the ground as thousands of people flock to the area. in song. Hershey’s didn’t take long to respond with its own public relations stunt.

It is also airing a Super Bowl commercial for Take 5 during the third quarter of the game. It begins in an office cubicle where a man says he has never heard of the bar as his co-worker, Trish, begins to eat one. The conversations erupt into a series of clichés that end up coming true.

What, you were born yesterday?” and so on. Dugan said the staff spent five days building the bar which was made by layering ingredients and coating the bar in chocolate.

The bar will be cut and distributed to employees of the Hershey Company. The world has Michael Nolt, a member of Hershey’s R&D team, to thank for the idea.

The bar debuted in 2004. “Employees love Reese’s.

They love the brand,” Dugan said. The spirit of breaking records is quite competitive – and just before game day, @reeses took Snickers’ record for the world’s largest dark chocolate bar 😍🍫😛 https://t. co /wp67qbskdR pic.twitter.com/fh2q9PIWPc — GuinnessWorldRecords (@GWR) January 31, 2020 Thanks for visiting PennLive.

We need your support.

America loves candy so much that we wrote some kind of annoying song about how much we want it back in 1965, and we haven’t shut up about it since.

And, in the gourmand nature of American knowledge that we love to champion, America also loves giant meals that don’t need to be quite so giant.

Of course, these two schools of thought have collided on several occasions, because a giant candy bar is cooler than a giant stalk of celery, mother.

In that entrepreneurial spirit, we’re here to salute America’s candy giants, but we won’t simply stick to a few Guinness World Records.

Sure, we could spend a few thousand words telling you about the 12,000-pound chocolate bar made by World Finest Chocolates in Chicago, or the 7,000-pound lollipop made by See’s Candies out of Burlingame, California, but what good is that? do you, the reader?

It might impress you, but does it give you the opportunity to go out, find something horribly unhealthy, and devour it in one sitting in what will probably prove to be the last and biggest mistake you’ve ever made in life Your cycle is shorter?

So we will stick to the greatest candy in the world that you, yes you, irresponsible you, can buy this very moment.

After all, you’re an adult, you can and you ate cake for breakfast because you make your own period and, hey, we’re all going to die one day, and overdosing on sucrose doesn’t sound worse than drowning.

The World’s Biggest Candy (which you can buy right now)

Candy, in the very vague definition of “sweet, edible processed with sugar as the main ingredient” has existed for thousands of years, first as varieties based on honey, and later by the Persians and the Greeks using actual sugar after the discovery of sugar there. sugarcane in India.

While the vast history of candy can be best illustrated through a series of woodcuts that just show people from various historical eras shouting, “Sugar Sugar Sugar, Gimme Gimme Gimme!” The last few hundred years have seen remarkable advances in candy science (close is probably something) and this lucky generation has literally thousands of different ways to satisfy their sweet tooth.

But there is a kind of candy that is the big revolver.

Wait, we meant, “Good ass candy.” Like the following.

What you can, and totally should buy and eat in one sitting.*

So prepare whatever part of your body is supposed to siphon off excess sugar (is the endocrine system a thing?) and prepare to accidentally buy at least one of the following.

World’s Largest York Peppermint Patties (2 half-pound patties, $20)

While a half-pound candy falls into the category of “a bit much, but nothing absolutely crazy by America’s foodie standards” we felt like we included the world’s greatest mints because, well, just imagine eating This mint gives us a stomach ache. .

Like, we would google “can you overdose and die from eating too much peppermint” but we don’t want to mess with the google image results.

The point is, for twenty US dollars, you can own enough peppermint to probably (?) kill a grown man.

Either way, you’re dealing with a mass-produced chocolate covered mint disc that’s about the size of a Frisbee and, coming in at $10 per pattie, about as expensive as an okay one.

Of course, we have to imagine there would be something very satisfying about snapping one of these suckers in half, and when you’re done with it you’ll never feel like buying a York Pattie at the movies. Concession stands forever again, but as ridiculous as this article is, we are only beginning to begin.

World’s Largest Snickers Bar (10 inches long, 1 pound, $20)

The package says “Slice n’ Share” but don’t listen to them, you’ll want to eat this on your own, all in one sitting.

Sure, it’s 2,000 calories, and about as heavy as six king-size Snickers bars crushed into an unholy concoction, but if anything we just gave you two more reasons why you should eat this mess of chocolate, nougat, caramel , and peanuts in. At this very moment, everyone who comes to your desk says, “Wow!

That’s a big Snickers, can you cut me a piece?” No, Marge, this is our Snickers, buy your own fucking Snickers, arf arf arf DON’T MISS WITH US WE’RE AMPED ON SUGAR AND BOURBON MARGE.

Snickers is your second favorite candy bar, behind this other one no one agrees with.

It is universally described as, “Oh, I love Snickers, but my favorite candy bar has to be…” and is a member of the “can be thrown into a public pool as a practical joke” family of treats.

In ten inches of chocolate goodness, this is the first Snickers bar that can be used in a penis joke without coming off as an insult, which has nothing to do with this article, we’re just contractually obligated to make a penis joke every time praise something. which uses “ten inches” as a descriptive feature.

World’s Largest Squid Glass (26 inches long, 3 pounds, $248.91 for 10)

Yes, you can buy this two-legged, 4,000 calorie slimy worms individually, but the fact that someone sells them in packs of ten amuses us endlessly.

There is something wonderfully American about someone who makes an impossibly giant worm and then thinks to themselves, “Shit, they’ll probably want to be able to buy this in bulk, right?” We’ll just assume that the price doesn’t factor in the shipping costs to send 30 pounds of semi-solid colored sugar through the mail, though honestly, for $250, shipping should be included.

In the 34 years or so since their release, however, gummies/gummy worms have become reliable and tasty filling-removing and braces-ruining staples of the American candy diet.

Of course, part of the appeal of gummy worms is the ability to eat them by the handful, which is what makes this gargantuan product even more impressive.

Apparently, that’s the equivalent of about 126 regular gummy glasses, which feels kind of low to us, so we’ll just say it’s about a million glumon glasses worth of gummy.

Now in the part where we show how, when the worm is shown as a single color that is held straight up and down, it totally looks like a double-sided cup.

Is it wrong to point out that a giant candy clearly looks like a sex toy?

Anyway, next candy.

World’s Largest HERSHEY Bar (20x2x12 inches, 5 pounds, $45)

If you can’t justify spending $45 on five pounds of chocolate, you clearly put too much value on nonessentials in life, like “rent” or “nutritious food” or “your insulin.”

Here we have a Hershey’s bar about the size of a human torso that is so massive it has to be reinforced with a cardboard frame to make sure it doesn’t snap under its own weight.

We have our chocolate giants.

The World’s Largest Lollipop (approx.

This article doesn’t claim to be the biggest lollipop, sure, but if you can find a lollipop bigger than 10 pounds and a fifteen inch circumference we will eat our shoes (also made of candy) (we there might be a little problem).

This lollipop, called the “Gigantic Kaleidoscope Lollipop” has many names, including “raisin decoration” and “oh my god, it’s only been two days since we started this and it’s covered in ants, and they’ve formed a colony complex, and when I tried to throw it away they ate our dog the ants ate our dog.”

The giant lollipops have long been standby comedy props because of the absurdity of the premise.

Real lollipops are sucked or licked (listen, we know, tee-hee and all that, let’s just be grown-ups about this and continue on with the sentence without drawing more attention to it) until you get bored, and bite the whole thing off . a giant crunch.

Giant lollipops are basically an exercise in frustration.

Unlike everything else on this list, it’s not really meant to be shared, and it’s supposed to be eaten in one sitting, so you’re making one helluva commitment when you drop ninety bucks on ten pounds of hardened sugar and corn syrup. on a stick. .

World’s Largest Grizzly Bear (26 pounds, $150)

What you see above has the equivalent of 1,400 gummy bears, making this the official gummy bear of diabetics who are looking to have a sugar-fueled Leaving Las Vegas reenactment.

At 32,000 calories, we must assume that this was created in response to the candy maker’s 5-year-old son asking, “Dad, is it possible to eat a lot of candy in one time you die?” Look at this unholy bear.

It costs one hundred and fifty US dollars and contains two weeks worth of your caloric intake.

By the way, here are the videos made to promote it.

Here is a video of a group of children eating it.

We are also sorry we did this to you.

We are also sorry we did this to you.

If it’s any consolation, assume that they ate that in one sitting, they’re dying now.

Let’s clear the palate with a video of someone shooting the 5 pound version of gummy bears a bunch of times.
