These are amazing times we’re living in.

Snickers has made their way to the Guinness Book of World Records with the world’s biggest Snickers bar.
The two tons candy bar is in Waco Texas, and has the official weight of 47,000 pounds. It’s over two feet high, and nearly 3 feet wide, and if you are wondering how many regular sized Snickers bars it would take to create this bad boy yourself, try 43,000.
“This is incredibly impressive,” Guinness World Records adjudicator Michael Empric told Fox News. “Some of my favorite record categories are big food because it has to be edible and it is also an engineering feat, so to get a 5,000-pound bar of chocolate to stay together is really challenging.”
Waco is the home of the Mars Wrigley plant, who created the bar in a week after coming up with the idea only two weeks ago. This factory after IS the world’s largest producer of beloved candies like Snickers, M&M’s and Skittles.
So what will happen to the ULTRA King Size bar? It will be cut into peices and sent to Mars Wrigley employees around the world.
