WACO, Texas (KCEN) — SNICKERS partnered with Guinness World Records to unveil the largest chocolate nut bar ever created on Thursday.

The unveiling happened at the Mars Wrigley plant in Waco. The ginormous candy bar is 12 feet long, 24 inches high, 26 inches wide and weighs more than two tons.

The SNICKERS bar is in the Guinness Book of World Records. For a chocolate nut bar to make it into the esteemed record book, Guinness says it must be 80 percent chocolate and nuts and fit for human consumption. The minimum requirement for a Guinness World Record is 220 pounds. With the bar weighing in at 4,728 pounds, it's the biggest bar yet, proving everything is bigger in Texas!

The company created the giant candy bar for the Super Bowl. The SNICKERS will appear in a Super Bowl commercial on Feb. 2.

The SNICKERS bar was built by Mars Wrigley Associates using the same classic ingredients found in every SNICKERS bar including milk chocolate, nougat, caramel and peanuts.

It will be given to Mars employees across the country.
