 The Guinness World Records' record for the largest popcorn ball weighed 3,423 lb (1,552.64 kg) and was made by employees at The Popcorn Factory, Lake Forest, Illinois, USA

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest popcorn sculpture; it measured 20 ft 10 in (6.35 m) tall, 12 ft 9 in (3.88 m) wide and weighed 11,688 lb (5,301.59 kg). It was created by 50 members of the Sri Chinmoy Centre in Jamaica, New York, United States.

  The Indiana State Police Motor Pool measured the weight, with a margin of error of 196 pounds. Four roll-off scales were used to measure the weight of the ball, which is 8 feet in diameter and has a circumference of 24 feet, 9 inches.

  The fair partnered with Snax in Pax, Pop Weaver and Indiana's Family of Farmers to pull off the popcorn feat, the RTV6 reported.

 "We learned a lot during this long process. It's fun to see the finished product, and it's great to be a world record holder," said State Fair Education Specialist Stephanie DeCamp in a statement.

  The base of it was built at Snax in Pax in Topeka, Ind. After it reached 2,700 pounds, it was taken to the fairgrounds, where staff members, board members and volunteers packed on another 3,800 pounds.
