It's official: Guinness awards world's biggest Nanaimo bar title to Levack family (video)

Northwest Fudge Factory breaks sixth Guinness World Record

Before families were taking on projects as an effort to keep busy at home during the school closure, two kids made it their mission to be entered into the book of Guinness World Records.

With help from their parents, who own the Northwest Fudge Factory in Levack, Ella, 10, and Austin, 5, constructed a Nanaimo bar that weighed a whopping 530 pounds.

The family unveiled their delicious creation to the public during the grand opening of the new Guinness World Record exhibit at Science North on March 7, just days before COVID-19 was announced a global pandemic.

After submitting photos, logs, the final weight and measurements more than four months ago, the family recently received the official certification from Guinness.

Watch the video above to see what went into making the world's largest Nanaimo bar.

The family now holds six dessert-related Guinness World Records, including the World's Largest Fudge slab, which weighed 5,750 pounds.
