To commemorate its 100th anniversary, Kemps Dairy set a Guinness World Record Saturday for producing the “World’s Largest Ice Cream Scoop.”
It carved 733 containers worth of strawberry ice cream (equal to the length of a football field of the frozen dessert) into a gigantic scoop at the Cedarburg Strawberry Festival outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Carved by five nationally ranked snow sculptors from Minnesota Big Snow, the Guinness World Record-setting Ice Cream Scoop weighed-in at 3,010 pounds, as verified by Guinness World Records’ judge Philip Robertson.
Once the record was officially set, hundreds of Strawberry Festival attendees had the exclusive opportunity to actually eat a part of Kemps’ historic scoop.
“What better way to commemorate the traditions of Kemps than by setting a delicious Guinness World Record? An historic celebration that you can eat!” said Rachel Kyllo, senior VP of Sales and Marketing for Kemps.
