Dec. 6 (UPI) -- A New York state confectioner created a nearby 2-foot-tall sponge candy in an attempt to obtain a Guinness World Record.
Niagara Chocolates, which is celebrating more than 60 years of making sponge candy, said the 131-pound treat measures 21 inches by 22 inches by 19 inches.
"If it was any bigger, you might need a forklift to move it around," Drew Keller, plant engineer at Niagara and organizer of the record attempt, told WKBW-TV. "It was a challenge to make, but the process was a lot of fun. I really think it has to be the biggest out there."
The company said it has submitted the required evidence of the candy to Guinness for official recognition.
