The Guinness Book of Records has confirmed that Tanis from Oosterhout had made the world’s biggest gummy bear. The gummy bear was then unloaded, laid and weighed and, at over 1,728 kilos and measuring 2 ½ x 2 x 1 metres, it is now officially the largest in the world! Employees of the family-owned company – which develops state-of-the-art production lines for international manufacturers of gummy and jelly candies – are all ‘Crazy about candy production’ themselves and think it’s great that the attempt has succeeded!

Indeed, it was not a foregone conclusion that the world record attempt would succeed. After pouring the huge candy mass on Tuesday 11 April, it had to harden properly to avoid collapsing and this proved to take longer than expected. Never before has a gummy bear of such volume and size been made, so it was difficult to estimate in advance how much time it would take. Now that the bear is loose and the record attempt has succeeded, Tanis is going to work out who gets to eat the gummy bear, as a prerequisite for maintaining the record is that the ‘candy’ is actually eaten. But first, visitors to the international trade fair ‘’  in Germany can view the world’s largest gummy bear at Tanis’ stand.
