Illinois Chef Constructs World's Largest Candy Cane

Breaking news: the world record for longest candy cane has been shattered. Things got pretty sweet this weekend in Geneva, Illinois when chef Alain Roby constructed a 51 ft. candy cane that stretched down the street from his All Chocolate Kitchen shop to the town's courthouse.

Why stretch so much sugar in the pursuit of said record? Well, glory for one. Roby is no stranger to such records, he also constructed the world's tallest sugar building (12 ft., 10 inches if you were wondering) and the tallest chocolate sculpture, clocking in at 20 ft., eight inches. If you're going to go for it, you might as well go big or go home.
