On June 28th, some lucky attendees of the annual Strawberry Festival in Cedarburg,Wisconsin, were able to kick off their celebration of National Ice Cream Month early, with scoops of free strawberry ice cream. While that in itself was a treat, what made it even more special is that the ice cream was being served from a massive 'sculpture' that had just been declared the 'World's Largest Ice Cream Scoop', by the authorities from Guinness World Records.
Carved by five members of the competitive snow sculpting team, Minnesota Big Snow, the sculpture was commissioned by Kemps Dairy, to celebrate the company's 100th anniversary. The giant scoop that weighed 3,010 pounds and measured 5'6"tall and 6'2" wide, was created using 733 containers of ice-cream.
In addition to delighting hundreds of fairgoers with free samples from this history-making scoop, Kemps Dairy also organized other fun activities that included ice cream licking contests for both children and adults - YUM!
