I guess everything really is bigger in Texas.
The Mars Wrigley candy company recently unveiled a two-ton Snickers bar built (built!) in its Waco, Texas plant that would satisfy your sweet tooth craving for eternity. The creamy, crunchy concoction contained 3,500 pounds of chocolate along with 1,200 pounds of caramel, nougat and peanuts, and it took a full week to make it.
The unworldly candy bar seemed like something straight out of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. The team from Guinness World Records was on hand for the January 16 unveiling to commemorate the larger-than-life signature creation.
Even for Snickers diehards, taking down a bar of that size would be a monumental challenge. According to the official press release, the record-breaker is equivalent to 41,000 (or maybe 43,000, there’s some disagreement) single-size Snickers bars – a figure that I’m sure will horrify dentists everywhere.
“It’s a big year for the Snickers brand,” said Josh Olken, Brand Director for Snickers. “We’re not only celebrating the 90th anniversary of the brand, but the Super Bowl will also mark ten years since the iconic “Game” spot launched the award-winning ‘You’re Not You When You’re Hungry’ campaign. What better time than the Super Bowl to satisfy something on the biggest scale yet?”
With big plans ahead for 2020, the massive chocolate bar is just the beginning. If you want to try it, unfortunately you’re out of luck – unless you’re a Mars employee, that is. The company will be giving out pieces of the giant bar to any workers that want one.
