To commemorate its 100th anniversary, Kemps Dairy set a Guinness World Record for producing the “World’s Largest Ice Cream Scoop,” when 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 famed Guinness World Records’ judge Philip Robertson.
Once the record was officially set at 12 Noon on June 28, hundreds of Strawberry Festival attendees had the exclusive opportunity to actually eat a part of Kemps’ historic scoop.
“Kemps is excited and humbled to celebrate a century of nourishing our communities through the wholesome goodness of our ice cream and dairy products with a record breaking celebration,” says Rachel Kyllo, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kemps. “What better way to commemorate the traditions of Kemps than by setting a delicious Guinness World Record? An historic celebration that you can eat!”
