Someone, let the lollipop guild know.

See's Candies now owns the Guinness World Records title for the largest lollipop.

The company constructed the behemoth in its See's Candies Lollypop Factory (yes, See's spells it with a 'y') in Burlingame on July 18.

The chocolate flavored confectionary collossus weighs in at 7,003 pounds and is 4 feet 8.75 inches in length, 3 feet 6 inches in width and 5 feet 11 inches in height.

With the stick, the lollipop is nearly 12 feet long. 

See’s Candies is owned by Berkshire Hathaway Inc., which bought the company from the See family in 1972. See's Candies’ corporate office is in South San Francisco and one of its kitchens for making candy is in Los Angeles.
