World's Largest Lollipop by See's Candies

What Do You Make of Oversized Food?

Happy Friday, and happy National Lollipop Day! In honor of the occasion, See's Candies constructed the world's largest lollipop in San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza this morning. The candy on a stick — standing in at 16 feet, 7 inches tall and a whopping 7,003 pounds — was declared the world's largest lollipop by Guinness World Records.

After hearing about the feat, the first thought that came to mind was, "What flavor is it, and who's eating it?" In case the color doesn't give it away, it's chocolate — but if you're hoping for a hunk, then you're out of luck. The lolly will be on display for the next couple days, only to be disposed of by a local recycling company thereafter. I love the idea of oversized food, but I always wish there was a way to put the food to practical use!

What's your take on it?

I love the novelty of oversized things, but if you're going to make it out of real food, why wouldn't you find a way of sharing it out rather than disposing of it?

It's sometimes cool to see, but I feel bad that we're so concerned with seeing something "cool" but not as concerned with feeding the hungry.

Um, why is it that when I try to vote in the poll I'm redirected to See's Candies website?  I think it's totally and completely wasteful.

Its big...but I am expecting something colorful. I agree with you, oversized food is cool, but it is never practical...Unless they will cut it into pieces and give it to kids out there.   My page: http://www.naturallygrassfed.com/
