One scoop of Kemps ice cream is big enough for record book

To commemorate its centennial, Kemps Dairy assembled a record-breaking scoop of ice cream on June 28 at the Cedarburg Strawberry Festival near Milwaukee, Wis.

Five snow sculptors carved 733 containers of strawberry ice cream — equal to the length of a football field — into a 3,010-pound scoop, which qualified for the Guinness World Record. Once the record was officially affirmed by a Guinness official, festival-goers lined up for an opportunity to actually eat a portion of the 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.”

The Kemps strawberry scoop broke the previous record by 240 pounds.
