There's A 7,000 Lb. Lollypop In Justin Herman Plaza

No really, this is not a toy truck. That lollypop is just huge. The 17-foot-tall, 7,000-pound sucker is equivalent to 145,000 of the regular sized ones, and it is on display until 4 p.m. today in Justin Hermann Plaza, at which point the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man will appear out of nowhere and crush it. Because they pulled this thing off, the CEO of See's and the director of manufacturing just accepted the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Lollypop. Now they can die happy.

SFoodie shares the ingredients: "roughly 3,000 pounds each of sugar and cream, 2,500 pounds each of corn syrup and chocolate lollipop mix, and 100 pounds of butter." Apparently the killer lollypop will make a final appearance at the Giants/Dodgers game next weekend. Oh yeah, and in case you didn't know, it's National Lollypop Day today too.
