June 28, 2014, to commemorate its 100th anniversary, Kemps Dairy set the record for the largest scoop of ice cream in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. The historic serving tipped the scales at 1,365.31 kg (3,010 lb).
The flavor of the ice cream is refreshing strawberry. The scoop measured 5 ft, 6 in (1.67 m) tall and 6 ft, 2 in (1.88 m) wide, containing approximately 733 household containers of ice cream combined into one mass. To accomplish this, Kemps enlisted five nationally-ranked snow sculptors from Minnesota Big Snow to carve 733 containers worth of strawberry ice cream. According to Kemps, the amount of ice cream used would fill an entire football field. The feat was verified by a Guinness World Records judge. Once the record was officially set at 12 Noon that day, hundreds of Strawberry Festival attendees had the exclusive opportunity to actually eat a part of Kemps’ historic scoop.
