May 4 (UPI) -- The CBS gameshow Let's Make a Deal set a world record by creating a massive cereal bowl as a gag prize.

Let's Make a Deal shared a clip featuring the record-breaking bowl, which was featured as a "ZONK" consolation prize on the show's "foodie" episode.

"Our Giant Zonk Bowl of Cereal is now officially the biggest bowl of cereal in the world! A new Guinness World Record!" The show's Twitter account said.

Guinness World Records confirmed the massive bowl, which weighed 3,504 pounds, met the proper specifications and presented the show with a record certificate.

"We are so excited to have achieved a Guinness World Record! We are constantly pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a game show, so it makes us incredibly proud to have this globally-recognized honor," Let's Make a Deal Executive Producer Mike Richards said. "The fact that we also happen to love cereal makes it all the more sweet!"

Members of the audience were invited to share in the contents of the gigantic bowl, which was filled with organic granola and milk and the remainder was donated to a local homeless shelter.
