In the heartland of America in a state famous for corn, the people in the little town of Sac City, Iowa showed what they are made of. Or, what they can make as a community. A 5,000 pound popcorn ball. Twice before, this town has been in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest popcorn ball. First time in 1995 and again in 2004.

The video below shows the making of the popcorn ball:

So, what's the recipe for the world’s largest popcorn ball?

  • 1,500 pounds of popcorn
  • 2,400 pounds of sugar
  • 11 pounds of corn syrup
  • 100% passion

We’re curious if they used a stove-top popcorn popper or a hot air popcorn maker to pop all that popcorn.
